What it means to serve as a RIPE NCC Executive Board member has changed dramatically in the 12 years since Christian Kaufmann first took on the role. With recent years having seen organisational change, the pandemic, sanctions and war - the board is increasingly called upon to make decisions that impact not only the future of the RIPE NCC, but people's access to the Internet in countries across its service region.
In this episode, Anastasiya Pak talks to Christian Kaufmann - who stepped down from the board at RIPE 86 in Rotterdam - to find out how he first got involved 12 years ago, what changes he's seen since then, and what it takes to serve on the RIPE NCC Executive Board today.
