    My view of the .nyc TLD situation is grim.

    - Too few safeguards are in place to avoid squatters and scammers.
    - Too few advantages to it differentiate it from the 1,000+ TLDs that will soon be available
    - Too little thought to how to integrate it with the city's economy.
    - And more. See our wiki and blog at
