The de Blasio administration initiated a program to license operators of 385 neighborhood domain names - Astoria.nyc, Bensonhurst.nyc, Corona.nyc, DUMBO, Elmhurst.nyc, Flatbush.nyc, GreenwichVillage.nyc, Harlem.nyc...
On Tuesday, March 22 at 7 PM we're going to review that licensing program and explore ways to connect the (potentially) 385 independent operators of those domain names, enabling them to share ideas and best practices.
o Update on the city’s licensing program for the neighborhood domain names.
o Hear the experiences and expectations of applicants for neighborhood names.
o Discussion: What organizational structure will enable operators of these “dotNeighborhoods” to share best practices and be represented before city and other regulatory entities? How can these operations collaborate to create open-source modules like bulletin boards, neighborhood calendars, etc.?
