OSI Layer 9 is "political". Let's explore non-Westphalian views on society, and the impact of coronavirus pandemic on inequalities, justice and digital technologies. I am inviting you to work together on imagining and building utopian Internet of the future.

The need for community actualisation is equivalent to the financial Layer 8. The COVID-19 pandemic offers a path to alternatives to capitalism: ecofeminism, degrowth, unions, and the circular economy. Caring and maintenance are resistant to paradigms of unlimited growth and disruptive innovation.
Social media, apps, web... are only the tip of the iceberg that is the Internet. This article - on Layer 7 of both the networking stack and Maslow's motivational pyramid - explains how the personal need towards self-actualisation can contribute to the resilience of the communities and societies.
To address the topics of RIPE community health, the OSI Networking Model is mapped to the Maslow pyramid of needs. In this instalment of the series, Vesna Manojlovic connects Layer 6 and the aesthetic needs.
Cognitive needs - for understanding, curiosity, exploration, knowledge - are strong in the technical communities. We are also known for the high prevalence of diverse neurotypes. This article celebrates the inclusion and care of all our quirks.
The lower the layer on the pyramid of needs is, the more important it is for person’s resilience; however, all layers of the networking stack are equally important for the resilient Internet. In this instalment of the series, Vesna Manojlovic connects the Layer 4 and the need for esteem.
The lower the layer on the pyramid of needs is, the more important it is for person’s physical and mental health; however, all layers of the networking stack are equally important for the resilient Internet. In this instalment of the series, Vesna Manojlovic goes to the third layer - network connec…
In this third article on community resilience I move on to the "Link Layer" according to TCP/IP stack and how it relates to meeting the need for safety: economic security, avoidance of risks and absence of harm.
To have a healthy Internet, RIPE community members need to maintain healthy bodies and healthy minds. The additional stress of COVID-19 makes it even more important to take care of the Physical Layer of a network(er)!
The continued resilience of the RIPE community during the COVID-19 pandemic has helped the Internet keep running. This hasn't been easy, but we're in it together! Vesna Manojlovic draws a parallel between universal human needs and OSI model networking abstraction layers.
This is the first in a series of blog posts on efforts to increase diversity and inclusivity in the RIPE community. The focus of this article is to report on activities before and during the RIPE 74 Meeting in Budapest in May 2017. We also invite you to join the mailing list, and help shape the ne…
The RIPE NCC's fifth hackathon event will happen in Amsterdam, in April 2017. We would like to invite operators, designers, researchers and developers to take on the challenge and join us in developing new tools and visualisations for DNS measurements.
This article is intended to make RIPE Atlas users aware of ethical issues that could arise when using RIPE Atlas. We do not intend to propose any new formal processes or procedures to address the relevant ethical issues, but we do want to encourage members of the RIPE Atlas community to consider th…
The RIPE Atlas Interface Hackathon is an opportunity to work together with RIPE Atlas developers and other enthusiastic coders and hackers. The hackathon will take place from 21-22 May in Copenhagen ahead of the RIPE 72 Meeting. Find out how you can take part!
There are a number of interesting new features and enhancements for RIPE Atlas users. Learn how you can put them to use!
This article describes how RIPE Atlas probes and anchors maintain their clocks, and how accurate these clocks are. We also plan to make the NTP measurements we describe here available as an additional measurement type for RIPE Atlas users.
Since 2003, the RIPE NCC’s DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON), has been providing a comprehensive, objective, and up-to-date overview on the quality of the service offered by TLD and other DNS operators. Due to technical advancements and in line with our aim to provide consolidated services, we are in…
