How can we be added to the list?
If you meet criteria, submit this form and expect response in about a week.
What does "mostly coded in NYC" mean?
Over 50% of the front & backend code for the website or application was written in NYC
How do you verify that participants meet the "mostly coded in NYC" and "10K+ people" rules?
For now, honor system. Maybe later, verification TBD. Violations will be made public.
My company is based in NYC but our technology is mostly made (coded) elsewhere. Can we be listed?
No. Many great companies and projects are certainly being conceived and managed and funded in NYC, but that doesn’t mean they’re made in NYC. This is for internet that’s made in NYC.
Why the strict "mostly coded in NYC" rule?
Because tech is coded, so made means made. Made doesn’t mean funded or managed. Like a shirt that’s designed/licensed/funded in USA, and made in China: It’s Made in China, not Made in USA. Made means made.
Is there a “Made in NYC” logo that we can display?
We don’t have an official logo, but see "Adverb or verb? What kind of adverb or verb?" for what you should display on your site
Who's behind this?
This is a project of the NY Tech Meetup.
What's the point?
If NYC is to thrive in the 21st century, NYC needs to make more internet. Thankfully and excitingly, NYC is now (2011) finally making some of the best internet in the world (see list above). So let’s proudly show ourselves off in the hope that everyone everywhere (including software engineers who don’t live in the world’s greatest city) know what internet is made in NYC.
Adverb or verb? What kind of adverb or verb?
Here are some examples:
- Foursquare says "Lovingly Made in New York"
- Meetup.com says "Meetup is Proudly Made in NYC"
- Aviary says "Hatched in NYC"
