Mr. Page Howe, the newly hired “Chief Engagement Officer” for the .LA Registry is heading to Washington DC to lobby and promote an aggressive Technology and Initiatives Agenda on behalf of .LA registrants; and technology businesses in and around Los Angeles and Southern California.
Page Howe who is a fellow “Domain Sherpa” commented as he left for Washington DC to join 200+ other delegates in the ACCESS Washington Dc 2015 trip March 16-18:
“Our delegation leaders have set out a clear agenda to protect data and privacy at the company level, and encourage creative uses of government big data.”
“.LA domains names help national and global companies create websites specifically tailored to the unique LA style, culture trends and demographics.”
Howe will also advocate for increased investment in targeted growth industries, a permanent ban on internet access taxes and immigration reform that can spur growth. and build a skilled workforce.
Many of the initiatives are also part of the City of L.A.’s 2015 Tech Policy Agenda as outlined by Councilman Bob Blumenfield at the recent Chamber Innovation and Technology Council meeting.
New and Startup companies and investors can now create, disrupt and engage customers in .LA with new ideas and better curated local websites. Businesses and personal brands can obtain shorter and easily remembered and available .LA domains for their websites, especially for restaurants, real estate projects and companies only marketing in and around LA.
A new economy in the .LA namespace keeps more jobs and commerce local in LA, as opposed to all online spending going out of area. Keeping online and mobile spending local creates a mutliiplier effect and recoups money currently travellling outside of LA as more and more people shop, buy and purchase online.
