New York - On Friday, November 30, 2007 Connecting.nyc Inc.’s founder Thomas Lowenhaupt returned to his alma mater, NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, to present the case for the .nyc TLD.

He first reviewed the basics of city governance and top level domains (TLDs) then detailed the negative impacts that have resulted from cities having been omitted from the Internet’s domain name system (DNS).

After reviewing the “easy” ways a .nyc TLD could favorably impact the city - good names, a directory, and a more intuitive city - he discussed the economic and quality of life improvements that can be achieved using community networking tools. He invited the audience to imagine a more connected city, where local opportunities and concerns are identified, solutions considered, decisions made, and solutions implemented using networking features offered within a .nyc TLD.

He urged everyone to explore these opportunities in the project wiki’s Development and Identity sections, and invited volunteers or interns to join and support the Campaign for .nyc.
