As the city that never sleeps, normally we leave early morning activities
to others - such as our ISOC DC colleagues! Nevertheless, here we will be,
thankfully well rested after the holiday weekend, bright and bushy tailed
on a Monday morning at Civic Hall. We very much appreciate Ms. Perez taking
time out of her schedule to give us this update ​before she heads to Geneva
for the IGF, As noted, there will be a livestream (sorry, no captions).
