Yesterday I delivered a paper to the Internet Governance Forum that
raised the question of how we measure the success of city TLD. I
"Entities that traditionally sell domain names as their
business are leading cities into the traditional
“the-more-names-sold-the-better” business model. We suggest that a
more appropriate model for cities might be the level of
improvement in children's education, in residents efficiently
provided health care, with the increased number of local
communication channels, on how well the digital divide has been
reduced, etc. These are the measurements that count for cities,
not the number of domain names sold."
Afterward I cringed a bit seeing that my answers needed some work.
Help me out between 10-11 AM today at our weekly Google+ Hangout at
the full IGF paper
