ISOC-NY Event: dot nyc - How Are We Doing? (Sat Apr 10)

Joly MacFie writes: (Update: This event has been postponed.) Last October the NYC Department of Information Technology & Telecommunications (DoITT) issued a request for proposals for “services to obtain, manage, administer, maintain and market the geographic Top Domain name .nyc.”. At ICANN’s recent 37th meeting in Nairobi, consensus was reached on the “overarching” issue of intellectual property protection. This leaves only the issue of the final (4th) draft of the Applicants Guidebook, expected before the 38th meeting in Brussels in June 2010, before the much delayed new generic top level domain (gTLD) delegation process can finally grind into action. (One caveat—a policy forbidding cross-ownership of registries and registrars is still not totally set in stone.)

The Internet Society - New York Chapter (ISOC-NY) has for some years been following the .nyc and ICANN process on behalf of the NYC community and will, on Saturday April 10 2010, host a symposium “dot nyc - How are we doing?” at NYU. Vendors Eric Brunner-Williams of CORE Internet Council of Registrars (CircleID) and Antony Van Couvering of Minds + Machines (CircleID) will reveal details of their proposals to the City, after which there will be a discussion “What’s it for?” about possible applications—civic, community, commercial, and “outside the box”—for a local top level domain.
