I’ve known David for a few years now, and can’t think of anyone more deserving of the Ron Yokubaitis Internet Community Leadership Award, i2Coalition: “The Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) presents the Ron Yokubaitis Internet Community Leadership Award to an individual whose contributions to U.S. Internet policy have helped create a better internet through promoting privacy protections, an open Internet and continued innovation.” Thank you for all of your work!

WordPress 5.5.2/5.5.3

Pretty obvious and not much to say here that hasn’t been said before.
