Subject: [NYCGA Internet] Domain Name Purchase


I want to say that I'm very disappointed in the way discussion around 
the purchase of a domain name was handled. There was no mention of this 
in the minutes from Sunday's meeting where they indicate that Jake 
expressed the following: we are not adequately representing our selves 
online. I donít care what this affinity group does. I care what we do. 
We arenít doing enough. Only two domain names exist that are relevant. or No matter what they 
want to do, we should try to have one of them.

Jake also started the forum thread about having two sites, which never 
mentioned buying a name. Those are the only recorded references I can 
find to this except the proposal to the GA.

I can't usually come to the internet meetings, but I follow the google 
group and the internet forum closely. How could a topic like this get no 
mention on any of these venues.

How can Internet expect people to use the nice tools we have to include 
interested parties if they can't lead by example?
