We hope you had a chance to be one of the more than 600 people who joined us last Friday to celebrate 25 years of interconnection. The show took us on an interactive journey through the history and the future of the Internet, with loads of interviews as well as a message from Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the Internet.
We also held our annual TechMeeting last week, with over 200 participants joining us over two days. Topics ranged from our new customer portal and BGP to cloud and the impact of Covid-19 on running networks.
We do hope you enjoyed the show and found the TechMeeting insightful. Thank you very much for your participation and for your contribution to our interconnection ecosystem in the past 25 years. Without you, the Internet would not be the same.
The show might be over but the celebration of the past, the present, and the future of the Internet continues on our Anniversary website. If you missed any of the events – or just want to relive them – get yourself a cocktail and watch the event recordings on our website, see the links below.
Enjoy the newsletter.
