  1. This is somewhat sacrilegious, but I will be making a presentation at a Future of Cities Salon on Saturday afternoon September 20, 4-6 PM. I’ll be one of 5 presenters with my focus on - you guessed it - the impact of TLDs on cities. The ever friendly event will be at the Stone Creek Bar at 140 E 27th.
