    MEETUP THURS: Premier Presentation of JacksonHeights.nyc @dotnyc 

    Connecting.nyc Inc.’s founding director Tom Lowenhaupt will present an overview of his organization’s development plans for the JacksonHeights.nyc domain on Thursday, January 12, at 8 PM. The presentation will be made at the Jackson Heights Jewish Center, 37-06 77th St. (map), a short walk from the Roosevelt Avenue – Jackson Heights subway stop on the E, F, M, and R trains, and the 7 train’s 74th Street station. The occasion will be the regular monthly meeting of the New Visions Democratic Club. All are welcome to this free event.

    Tom’s presentation will begin with a description of the .nyc TLD and the city’s hopes for its neighborhood names licensing program. Then, after a project history and timeline, he’ll describe the system’s initial features – a neighborhood resource directory and common calendar – and the ways neighbors and organizations may join in developing and using them. He’ll then speak of the long term potential as social and civic features are developed and introduced.

    He’ll conclude with a discussion of the ways existing neighborhood organizations might benefit, and of the plans to transition control of the endeavor from Connecting.nyc to neighborhood residents.

    NYC Councilors Quinn and Brewer welcome #newgTLDs #dotNYC #ICANN 

    New York City Councilors Christine Quinn and Gale Brewer have issued a statement following ICANN’s approval of the new gTLD program in Singapore last week:

    Re: ICANN Announcement to Expand Domain Offerings

    “Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced it will dramatically expand its domain offerings and will begin accepting applications for new domains in January 2012. Once approved, this will allow for the addition of a dot New York City suffix that will be operated by a private vendor and be made available to New York City businesses and residents.

    This is a fantastic opportunity for the New York City establishments that will now be able to secure their online presence with a top-level domain name, and for the City of New York, which will benefit from the millions of dollars in revenue dot NYC will generate.

    When I first proposed launching a New York City specific domain in my State of the City two years ago, it was because I saw the enormous potential for New York City businesses to carve out a place of their own on the Internet.

    With ICANN’s support, and the hard work of Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications Commissioner Carole Post, New York City Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne and former and present chairs of the Committee on Technology, Council Members Gale Brewer and Fernando Cabrera, today that potential has been realized.

    I applaud ICANN’s decision to increase the availability of new domains, and in doing so, allow New York City businesses the freedom to take control of their Internet presence.

    Dot NYC will reflect the locality that defines New York City and makes our vendors one of a kind. I look forward to working with the DoIT to find a suitable operator to help administer dot NYC.”

    City Council Member Gale Brewer:

    “Today’s decision by ICANN opens the doors for New York City, like many of our global competitors, to apply for a top-level domain name. I applaud the efforts of those advocating for a domain name to ensure that local small businesses and merchants based in New York City are able to brand themselves as such. The small business community is a vital part of the New York City economy and any opportunity to increase their exposure while facilitating easy searching online is a smart step forward.”
