Internet Measurement Village 2020: Slides & Video Recordings
Over the last month, between 10th June 2020 to 3rd July 2020, we organized and hosted the Internet Measurement Village (IMV) 2020, an online community event aimed at sharing skills, knowledge, and resources on internet measurement, in defense of a free and open internet.
As all the IMV sessions were live-streamed and will continue to live on the OONI YouTube channel, we hope that these recordings will serve as a valuable resource on internet measurement for the internet freedom community.
In this post, we share the slides and video recording of each IMV 2020 presentation.
IMV 2020 Recap
As part of the Internet Measurement Village (IMV), we live-streamed a total of 18 presentations: one presentation almost every day over four weeks.
The presentations featured various internet measurement projects, local censorship measurement projects, advocacy efforts fighting internet shutdowns, and censorship circumvention tool projects. We were honored to be joined by many brilliant and passionate community members!
Each presentation was live-streamed on the OONI YouTube channel, enabling anyone around the world to tune in and participate. To encourage participation, we facilitated chat discussions during each presentation on several platforms (YouTube live chat, Slack, IRC), where we shared relevant resources and collected questions in a pad (where viewers also had the option to contribute questions anonymously). We were amazed by the level of participation! On average, each presenter received around 10 questions from the viewers.
Thanks to the lovely Sandy Ordonez, the IMV also had an online social event! On 26th June 2020, Sandy hosted the IMV 2020 Distance Disco, an online dance party that provided participants an opportunity to meet and greet, and dance their stress off!
At the end of the IMV 2020, we shared a survey (which we encourage you to fill out, if you haven’t already!) to collect community feedback and learn how we can host better events in the future.
Warm thanks to all IMV presenters for sharing their important work with the community! Special thanks to everyone who tuned in, asked questions, and shared resources.
