Dear Paul, 

Many thanks for your update and for APNIC’s willingness to keep hosting and archiving this list. 

Given that we have such a large number of apparently well-behaving subscribers to the list and a renewed interest of keeping this list as a multistakeholder discussion forum, I wonder whether we need moderation or rather some sort of curation, i.e. someone to post more than a monthly statistics, but a summary of events, discussions taking place elsewhere, etc. Any volunteers? 

And perhaps some way of filtering forged mail headers ;-), although without Patrik’s “spam” mail we might have forgotten about this list, so thanks to the forged mail header spammer. :-)

Best regards

Peter H. Hellmonds

Dear colleagues,

It’s nice to see this small flurry of activity on the 1net “discuss” list. APNIC has been hosting this list and its archive for a while, and have wondered from time to time about its future.

Now there are new questions about closing the list, and also about a renewed purpose, and also whether the relations between 1net and the Net Mundial Initiative (NMI) or the NetMundial meeting could still be relevant and useful.

Right now there are 637 subscribers to the list and no signs of people unsubscribing. Back in December 2013, at the height of 1net discussions, there were 566 subscribers. So there’s certainly a comunity here!

APNIC has no particular position on the future of 1net but we can host the list and the archive for as long as that is useful. And we will follow the discussion with interest.

BTW for those interested, the archive is here:


And if anyone wants to subscribe or unsubscribe to this list, they can do so here:


All the best!
