And if you want to get started now with deploying these technologies, please visit our “Start Here” page to find resources targeted at your type of organization or role.

Note: This is an experiment for us, as we’ve never used Zoom for an ION Conference before. Please be patient with us tomorrow as we try to work through some kinks! We’ll be opening the session in the morning for the Regional Internet Governance Fora session happening in the same room, so if you’re an Internet Governance buff, you can log into the same conference and check it out in advance.
