    Buenos Días, Buenos Aires!

    This morning I arrived in Buenos Aires, where volunteers and staff have been busy preparing for our 95th IETF meeting. It looks like everything is ready, the network is up and the hotel facilities look great.

    This morning I arrived in Buenos Aires, where volunteers and staff have been busy preparing for our 95th IETF meeting. It looks like everything is ready, the network is up and the hotel facilities look great.

    I wanted to make a couple of observations. First, many volunteers arrive early to an IETF meeting to help make the meeting network work and the meeting a success. Thank you!

    Secondly, I think we are being treated to a dose of real networking experiences around the world. The IETF network is as good as networks come anywhere, but we are far away. What does it feel like when you favourite data centre is no longer 10ms away? Big parts of the world are in that situation and have less intercontinental connectivity than we do in Europe or North America. It might be helpful for us to remember that and figure out if there are ways for us to improve our technologies to accommodate those situations even better than they do today.

    In terms of travel, the immigration process at the Ezeiza airport seemed quick, queuing included well under ten minutes for me. The taxi ride from the airport to the city took an hour, given some traffic in the city end, and cost 500 Pesos. The city is sunny today, temperature now 23 degrees and rising. My luggage was left somewhere in Europe, but hey, as long as the network is up and there’ll be a t-shirt in this IETF, I should be fine!

    Looking forward to seeing you all soon here in person soon!
