Description:
Connecting.nyc Inc. is the New York State not-for-profit formed in 2005 to prepare our city for a more networked future. Our founding mission was to advocate for the development of the .nyc TLD as infrastructure that would empower New York City’s residents and organizations to better connect with one another and the world. With .nyc’s acquisition and its activation in 2014, we modified our mission to reflect the needs of New York and cities globally. They strive to educate New Yorkers about the effective use of the Internet, with emphasis on the .nyc TLD’s community building role. Serving as an intermediary between the individual Internet users and the ICANN community. Facilitating this role is our status as an At-Large Structure Organization within the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). Make a knowledge base about extant city-TLDs available to cities globally. Enabling us in this role is our special consultative status within the United Nations – we’re an NGO.
