- Saving Small Businesses
Supporting Businesses, Strengthening Neighborhoods
Sounds like a great plan.
There are several possible developments associated with arrival of the .nyc TLD (like .com and .org but just for New York) that I'd like to offer for your consideration as each offers advantages to today's and tomorrow's small businesses.
1. Domain names for existing small businesses - Rickys Cafe is across the street from me and it would be great if it got the RikeysCafe.nyc domain name. This would help create a more intuitive city where we would be less dependent on Google and the plethora of intermediaries helping(?) us navigate today's Net.
2. Names for BIDS - My local BID's formal name is the 82nd Street Business Improvement District - not a great domain name, or even a good one. Work to reserve names like Shop82.nyc
3. Domain name businesses – Imagine little shops all over the city where people retail .nyc domain names and offer web and other Internet services.
But none of this happens if we don't devise a plan for a sustainable .nyc TLD, assuring domain names for future small businesses.
Finally, space precludes my describing our http://NYCwiki.org effort and how it will lead to strong Neighborhoods. For that you'll need to see our web site. Start at http://connectingnyc.org.
