You probably don't need me to tell you the 2020IGF has started, but please
find the handy links below. 'Huma resilience' is indeed what one needs to
get through the program! To participate via zoom one must 1) register 2)
add the session to one's 'personal calendar' on the site. Then the zoom
link should appear. What I recommend, as a way of keeping up, is just to
open 3 browser windows on the real time text, and let 'em run.

Here are some sessions featuring our ISOC colleagues during week 1. I am
sure there are more
