Toward a Hackathon for Allocating .nyc Domain Names

From: Tom L.
Sent on: Thursday, August 11, 2011 1:00 PM

We're getting closer to the day when .nyc domain names are going to be allocated. So who gets news.nyc, sports.nyc and weather.nyc? What about hotels.nyc, dogs.nyc, and slingshots.nyc? Who makes the decision?

We're looking into creating an opinion tool that empowers New Yorkers to voice their views.  At next Thursday's Google+ Hangout - that's Thursday the 18th - from 10-11 AM were discussing the prospects and hopefully process for getting one started. We think a Hackathon might be the way to go. What's out there now that works like this? Is there open source code we can use?

Discussion: How do we start a hackathon for a domain name sorter?

Sorter Operation

Step 1. Enter a .nyc domain name, for example news.nyc:   ____________.nyc

Step 2. How should this name be allocated:

A. Auctioned to highest bidder?

B. Auctioned to highest qualified bidder? (Qualified = contractual obligations for the public interest)

C. Issued to a lottery winner?

D. Issued to a lottery winner? (With contractual obligations)

E. Etc.

Step 3. Enter another .nyc domain name:  ____________.nyc

Step 4. See the results.

Join us at our next Google+ Hangout to help decide on the pieces to this toolbox and how we get it constructed. You can RSVP at our meetup site.

Best,

Tom Lowenhaupt
