Re: [URBANSPACEship] May[masked] PM at Neighborhood Preservation Center on dotNeighborhoods

All,

It was a pleasure meeting many of you at Project for Public Spaces.

This Thursday, from 6-8 PM, we're sponsoring Inventing.nyc - The Neighborhoods, a meeting at the Neighborhood Preservation Center, 232 East 11th Street, at which we will further our dotNeighborhoods initiative. Here's the meeting notice:
The city has committed to making the .nyc TLD a reality and the wheels of government are starting to turn. Our attention is returning to the neighborhood domain names - Astoria.nyc, BrooklynHeights.nyc, Chelsea.nyc, Douglaston.nyc, Flushing.nyc, GreenwichVillage.nyc, Harlem.nyc, etc. - and how they are developed.

We’ve several wiki pages on our dotNeighborhoods initiative, one of which links to an informative Case Study by the Hunter College Graduate School of Urban Affairs. As well, we’ve an ongoing research collaboration with the New York Internet Society and Wikimedia-NY, see NYCwiki.org.

On Thursday, May 17, 6-8 PM, we’re meeting at the Neighborhood Preservation Center to scrutinize our musings and move toward engaging neighborhood activists city-wide and creating a viable governance and business model for the neighborhood name-set. The Center is at 232 E. 11th St, New York, NY (map). The draft agenda is available. Register or email your intention to attend to [address removed].

The neighborhoods name-set is one way we are working to encourage the development of the .nyc TLD as public interest infrastructure. Your thoughts on the matter would be most welcomed.

Best,

Tom Lowenhaupt

Hey everyone,

It was great to have many of you at the 1st meetup with Project for Public Spaces (PPS). Just to recap for those who weren't able to attend, we had PPS host us at their office for a fascinating discussion on Placemaking. Ideas were already abuzz by the end of the event, and we have yet to determine a platform for sharing ideas between members- thoughts are welcome!

Our 2nd meetup will take place next Thursday evening, May 24th with Mike Lydon, principal of The Street Plans Collaborative, which is an urban planning and design firm focused on improving the public realm and increasing mobility opportunities. He'll be speaking with us about Tactical Urbanism (essentially a method of planning that involves first step approaches that evolve into long-term implementable solutions) and The Open Streets Project - which he just presented at the Congress for New Urbanism's latest conference in Florida, CNU 20.

A short article about his presentation at CNU 20:

And you can check out the awesome work of The Street Plans Collaborative here:

I will send an official invite shortly.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Best,

Leemor
