Happy New Year! It’s safe to say the Internet2 community last year eagerly followed the progress of the Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI) and news about the Internet2 Network.

Based on 2021 engagement metrics, a whopping six of the top 20 blog posts and news announcements featured NGI and Internet2 Network topics.

But it wasn’t all network news in 2021. You and others in the Internet2 community also searched for more information on eduroam updates, the Cloud and NET+ blog posts, I2 Online webinars (which were extremely popular as we continued to host virtual programming), and grant announcements, to name a few. When we reflect on 2021, and as our list below shows, it’s clear that the Internet2 community stayed highly engaged in research and education (R&E) topics via blog posts, videos, and virtual events.

Without further ado, here are the top 20 blog posts and announcements in terms of relevance, Internet2 website page views, and Speed Read email clicks from 2021:
