One Vancouver
 
Here is a superb example of how a city has embraced the Dot Tel concept:

http://www.One-Vancouver.com

http://OneVancouver.tel

Are there any other similar city sites ?

Hi Mike,
They have been very proactive, obviously some very switched on people driving this, do you have any info on their objective of, Quote- "One Vancouver’s goal is to distribute 25,000 .TEL names in Greater Vancouver before 2010". Unquote.

Hi Cees,

I don't know if they made the 25,000 target this year - but even if they achieved 50% of this that would still be a very significant achievement.

Vancouver is such a great city - been there a couple of times and really enjoyed it.

Well worth reading
 
Mike, I sent an email to one of the people behind the push for One Vancouver.tel, Mr Matthew Lane answered my request, the following forms the main part of the question I put to him, "Is there someone in your organisation able to give some idea of the total .tel names registered in the "One Vancouver" initiative"
He has kindly given his permission to post his reply (below) on the Telnic Forum, it makes interesting and encouraging reading.


Hi Cees
*
Thanks for getting in touch. I know there are quite a few active .tel holders in Australia and it’s good to hear from you.
*
As you may know, One Vancouver is the umbrella for a number of initiatives in the local area. The idea being that if we get a lot of local users, there’s a greater likelihood of bumping into someone else with a .tel and being able to exchange them. We believe that actively using .tel is the best way to spread the word.
*
It’s difficult to determine numbers as while the initiative was instigated by Webnames.ca it was always intended to be non-partisan. We know a lot of people that have heard the radio advertising or seen the billboards and registered their names through other registrars. The overall numbers are still a fair way off our lofty goal but certainly in the thousands and there is a healthy and vibrant community of .tel users. A lot of people have their .tel on their business cards and use Hornet or Superbook regularly.
*
One of the most interesting stories to come out of One Vancouver so far is the .TEL Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/dotTel/) which meets monthly. This is a local, non-registrar initiative with an ever growing membership. It has recently started to be streamed live so that interested parties from around the globe can listen in and participate. There’s a meeting this Friday I believe.
*
I would certainly encourage you to get something going in your own community. We see .TEL as a long term technology. It may not be sexy like some technologies, but it absolutely has the potential to revolutionize the way we connect. It’s a long road, but a grass roots approach combined with top down initiatives from Telnic will get us to those critical adoption numbers faster. Do let us know if there’s anything we can do to help.
*
Regards

Totally agree - that's a very good summary by Matt Lane of the current situation.

Mike, good post on One-Vancouver.

I would like to put out a reminder, that the sister site to OneVancouver is www.One-Sanfrancisco.com

Webnames did a great job in partnering with a few dottel enthusiasts to help develop the site.

Regards

It's good to see San Francisco following the lead of www.One-Vancouver.com - I did wonder about One-London's availability as a domain name but note that http://www.One-London.com and http://www.OneLondon.com are both taken and used.
