A few events for those who've signed up for the "Imagining New York City's Internet Space - the .nyc TLD!" meetup.
If you like the idea of making the .nyc Top Level Domain available for New York and New Yorkers, you'll probably like to attend some of the upcoming OneWebDay events listed below. And if you'd like to do some advocating for .nyc, that's fine too. We'll be having a meeting focused on .nyc in October.
