Planning New York City's dotNeighborhoods - January 26

From: Tom L.
Sent on: Sunday, January 24, 2010 9:35 PM
What: Planning New York City's dotNeighborhoods

When: Tuesday, January 26,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 E 11th Street (near Second Avenue)

-----------
We've all become familiar with Top Level Domains like .com, .org, .edu, and .gov. New York City will soon have its own, the .nyc TLD.
 
Tuesday's meeting will focus on a special part of the .nyc Top Level Domain, the dotNeighborhood name-set. With .nyc's activation (perhaps as early as next year) 300+ domain names like GreenwichVillage.nyc, BayRidge.nyc, JacksonHeights.nyc, Harlem.nyc, Astoria.nyc, Chelsea.nyc, and Melrose.nyc will become available to serve their neighborhoods. If thoughtfully developed, these dotNeighborhoods will be places where neighbors can connect with one another to address problems and explore opportunities.
 
This is our third dotNeighborhoods meeting and our focus will be on governance and accountability: How do we assure that Corona.nyc serves the needs of Corona residents and not the beer company?
See our dotNeighborhoods wiki pages for background.
 
We'll also hear from the Hunter College Graduate School of Urban Affairs Workshop which just completed a project entitled: A Case Study - Neighborhoods in a Digital Era. The researches will describe their process and findings. You can read the report's Executive Summary here.
 
Connecting.nyc Inc. advocates for the .nyc TLD's development as a public interest resource and sees these neighborhood names as perhaps the most significant name-set. For more on this and the other name-sets, see our Domain Name Allocation Plan.
 
RSVP to [address removed].

Best,

Tom Lowenhaupt
