City-TLD Landrush Models

Posted by:

Jackson Hts., New York, September 20, 2014 – With the October 3rd end of the city’s Landrush period 13 days away, we are sill headed toward a bad ending for this initial roll-out of our city’s TLD, with multiple modifications over many years required to bring our city’s TLD into alignment with its potential. We’re working on a “impending disaster” post detailing the lost opportunities the current “Bloomberg Contract” will inflict on our city’s operational effectiveness, livability, and its competitive position globally.

In the interim we wanted to publish this City-TLD Landrush Model graphic depicting one of the blatant problems with the extant Landrush process.

We’re not yet fully satisfied with the graphic as it still requires explanation. One needs to read The .nyc Landrush: Adding Injury to Insult post to understand how the Bloomberg Contract will turn small business into roadkill. One need also understand the difference afforded historic property rights under the .london and .nyc TLDs, as described in the New York Landrush Period Priority Rules. We’re looking for a venue to publish the full story as a long-form article (suggestions appreciated), but thought it wise to publish this “Roadkill” alert now.
