dotNeighborhoods

We're all familiar with Top Level Domains like .com, .org, and .gov. New York will soon have its own, the .nyc TLD. This meeting will focus on the dotNeihgborhood name-set.

Connecting.nyc Inc. advocates for .nyc's development as a public interest resource and sees neighborhood names as the most significant name-set. More on this here. For details on the range of names to become available see our Domain Name allocation Plan.

Sans Murphy, beginning next year there will be websites like GreenwichVillage.nyc, BayRidge.nyc, JacksonHeights.nyc, Harlem.nyc, Astoria.nyc, Chelsea.nyc, Melrose.nyc, and 300 other neighborhood websites. These will be places where neighbors can connect with one another to address problems and explore opportunities. With their arrival neighborhood names will attain significance beyond the amount you pay for housing. This is our third 'dotNeighborhoods' meeting and we're going to focus on governance - how do we make sure that Corona.nyc serves the needs of Corona residents and not the beer company? See our dotNeighborhoods wiki for more on technology, content, finance, and other project issues. First on the agenda is a report from Hunter College Graduate School of Urban Affairs Workshop which just completed a project for us: A Case Study - Neighborhoods in a Digital Era. The researches will describe their process and findings.

Then we'll get into the question of governance.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
