Policy Statements

The Accessible City

The city administration has moved to acquire the .nyc TLD - its like .com and .org but just for New Yorkers. And it has created a .NYC Advisory Board to help fashion an insightful development plan.


We need digital public spaces to help the public engage and run our city. For example, "voters.nyc" with every registered voter getting a "my-city" civic space, e.g., Your.Name.voter.nyc, with candidate info, polling location, issues, discussions...


And it can help occupy our neighborhoods - GreenwichVillage.nyc, RedHook.nyc, JacksonHeights.nyc etc. - making wikis where we review local resources and organize to address opportunities. And since these all-knowing "dotNeighborhoods" will obliterate privacy, lets create "privacy.nyc" to address privacy policy development and enforcement. And so on...


Let's create an intuitive framework for our digital resources and a more accessible city. See http://bit.ly/OurBlog for more.
