Techweek arrives in Los Angeles today, in one of its final stops of an 8 city tour across North America. Techweek is a week long event which acts as a catalyst to boost emerging tech ecosystems, and we have some exciting news to share with everyone! Our CEO, Daniel Negari and XYZ – are both being honored as recipients for the Techweek 100 awards, which are presented to “the most prominent tech leaders and innovators in the greater Los Angeles area”.

techweek

Daniel was selected for the Ambassador award, which is only given to 25 industry leaders within the community. The Ambassador award is for those who have not only acted as positive representatives for their specific industries, but for the tech industry as a whole. Daniel stands amongst other honorees of this prestigious award including: entrepreneur Mark Cuban, the CEO of GM Mary Barra, and Marcelo Claure, the CEO of Sprint.

XYZ, alongside companies like Oculus, Maker Studios, and SpaceX, was selected for an award in the Innovator category – reserved for companies who are shaping their industries with innovative new technology and forward-thinking ideas.

We couldn’t be happier to accept these awards, and Team XYZ (and the #XYZsquad) will be attending Techweek here in Santa Monica. We look forward to meeting with all of the other honorees and attendees throughout the week.

But that’s not all we have planned for November! XYZ will be holding a special sale with our registrar partners for Black Friday and Cyber Monday – and we have some amazing deals planned.

Be sure to keep an eye out on our Twitter for live updates from Techweek, and for more information on our sale as the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend approaches.

Engine.xyzGoDaddy customer (United States)

Just over two years ago when our CEO Daniel Negari launched .xyz, he envisioned a future where entrepreneurs could build websites for their innovative ideas on memorable domain names. Since then we’ve seen the #GenXYZ community grow to include some of the biggest influencers in tech. This list now includes Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), who was just featured in TechCrunch for this week’s #WebsiteWednesday: Engine.xyz.

engine

MIT recently announced that they were launching a new type of startup accelerator designed to simplify the path for entrepreneurs bringing truly impactful technologies to market. Marking this monumental event, MIT’s President, L. Rafael Reif, wrote this open letter:

It will supply the particular combination of resources they need to develop and bring to market innovations that address society’s most important challenges. We’re calling it The Engine.

If we hope to deliver serious technological solutions to urgent global challenges … we need to make sure the innovators working on those problems see a realistic pathway to the marketplace.”

As a world renowned leader in developing breakthrough technology – with alumni who have founded notable companies like Texas Instruments and Intel – MIT plans to draw on $175 million in funding from the university and its investors to aid resident companies at The Engine. The venture currently occupies 26,000 square-feet of lab space on campus with plans to expand to over 200,000 square-feet. MIT has also established an online marketplace of specialized equipment, space, and services called the Engine Room. This marketplace acts as a network to connect Boston’s disruptive thinkers and gives them access to the tools and space needed to develop their technologies.

MIT chose to use Engine.xyz because it speaks directly to the next generation that will be solving these global problems. It has created a platform for its students to bring their innovation to a global audience, just as others in the #GenXYZ community have done before them. With MIT now joining the .xyz ranks, it’s just a matter of time until more disruptors in the program introduce their ideas to the world using .xyz.

Empati.xyzIsimtescil customer (Turkey)

With our pet friendly office, we are reminded every day of the joy that animals bring to so many people’s lives. Whether it’s that exciting greeting you get every time you come home from work or a soft couch-buddy curled up next to you, nothing compares to the companionship pets give you. Even if you don’t have a dog or cat in your life, we can all agree that every pet deserves a loving home. Unfortunately, many of these animals get left behind and the life of a stray pet can be extremely difficult. Fortunately, our #WebsiteWendesday this week has made it their mission to help these animals get everything they need, with or without an owner: Empati.xyz

empatisite

You may have first read about Empati.xyz in our August blog post celebrating the Olympics. But with this past Saturday being National Cat Day, we decided to take a deeper look at a group that truly cares for cats and their canine counterparts. Empati (the Turkish translation for “empathy”) is an organization based in Istanbul that is saving the lives of the many stray cats and dogs in their city. By building homes, collecting food, and raising money for these animals, Empati protects strays from illness, starvation, and gives them the nourishment and care they deserve.

Empati’s website includes in-depth tutorials on how to build dog or cat houses, and showcasing how simple it is for anyone to help the animals around them. With their map feature, you can easily help save a stray by pinpointing the nearest shelter in Istanbul. These pets then find new homes by having their profiles shared on social media. When it’s that easy to help a furry friend in need, who could walk away from faces as cute as this:

empati

The well-being of stray animals is not a problem unique to Istanbul, and Empati uses their short, brandable .xyz URL to expand their influence worldwide. With this creative take on saving pets, Empati is inspiring #GenXYZ to care for animals who need a helping hand – or a loving ear-scratch.

If you’re inspired by Empati.xyz’s work and want to make a difference with your own .xyz domain, head over to our Turkish partners Natro and Isimtescil to take advantage of their limited time sales!

MindTheGap.xyz1&1 customer (Netherlands)

The longevity of a business, regardless of its age, relies on the ability to continuously innovate. In today’s fast-paced environment, businesses truly set themselves apart by expanding upon their initial idea and launching entirely new products and services. With the focus entrepreneurs have on their own vision, it can be easy to miss key opportunities to gauge how their product will be received in the market. Luckily for them, this week’s #WebsiteWednesday will make sure any business is ready to succeed as soon as their product hits the market: MindTheGap.xyz.

mindthegap

Mind the Gap is a product development company that helps businesses reach their full potential by offering design consulting and market testing for products and services. With over 10 years of experience working on projects for clients like TomTom, Mind the Gap helps companies strategically develop ideas by utilizing a comprehensive design process. This process includes storyboards, UI flows, and concept testing coupled with market research, so their clients have the information they need to ensure a successful launch.

Mind the Gap also applies their innovative design strategy to their own original projects. One example is their Colorburgers project, which celebrates cultures from around the globe using one of the most common food items in the world: the hamburger. The first installment featured a burger inspired by the cuisine and culture of Angola, which gave event attendees a taste of the country while also educating them about its history and people.

“If you’ve ever taken the tube in London, you’ll be familiar with ‘Mind the Gap’ as a regular reminder to help you step over the narrow space between the train and the platform. Gaps, as such, are spaces between things, people or knowledge; with this they represent something missing or challenging, but also present exciting opportunities for new ideas and innovation.” – Nina Voege, Founder of MindTheGap.xyz

By identifying unsolved problems in the market and presenting creatively designed solutions for them, MindTheGap.xyz helps businesses and entrepreneurs bring innovative new tools into our everyday lives. Like XYZ, Mind the Gap supports companies with great ideas and helps share them with a global audience. It’s fitting they chose the only domain that matches their passion to connect people and ideas across the globe – .xyz.

Rascali.xyzDreamhost customer (United States)

2016 has seen a host of futuristic technology making it’s way into our lives, from delivery robots to self driving cars. One of the most talked about emerging technologies already entertaining millions around the world is virtual reality. Our #WebsiteWendesday this week will give you a look at one VR company leading virtual innovation and catching the attention of some of the biggest names in tech: Rascali.xyz.

rascali

Rascali is a digital content studio that creates interactive virtual reality experiences used for marketing, employee training, and entertainment. Launched as the non-gaming division of VR developer Studio Roqovan, Rascali’s team of developers bring experience from projects with Marvel, Call of Duty, Dreamworks, and the NFL to build VR landscapes that connect users with the mission of their business through a custom-designed virtual world.

One of our favorite Rascali projects is Woofbert VR. Created through partnerships with leading museums around the world, Woofbert VR allows users to tour virtual renditions of famous art galleries and, as CNN demonstrated, even go inside paintings to get a front-row seat to some of the greatest moments in history. Facebook featured Woofbert VR at their Oculus Connect 3 conference and called it “one of the pioneering experiences that is defining the future of virtual reality.” Rascali also announced in May that it had partnered with YouKu Tudou, one of China’s largest media companies, to release two narrative VR experiences on YouTube, Facebook’s OculusVR, Samsung’s MilkVR, and many other platforms.

When forming a company that is as new, fresh, distinct and original as Rascali, we wanted a website that would be simple to remember, yet still provide a distinctive representation.  What could be better than simply the company name to keep it simple, and add the great domain “.xyz”?  We felt that this domain was perfect…What we are creating has a reach into every industry, and every culture.  As a development and production studio, we view ourselves as an A to Z company, and the .xyz domain fits perfectly with this vision.” – Philip Moses, Head of Rascali.xyz

Like .xyz, Rascali is at the forefront of innovation in their field by creating platforms that help businesses engage with #GenXYZ. Just as .xyz is shaping the future of the internet, Rascali is shaping the future of the VR industry.

If you’re inspired by Rascali and want to launch your own website with .xyz, you should head over to our partners at DreamHost who are having a limited time sale on .xyz domains!

Intorno.xyzGoDaddy customer (Spain)

This fall is shaping up to be a historic one for the live music lovers of #GenXYZ. The Rolling Stones played with Paul McCartney and Bob Dylan, and major artists from Kanye West to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons are playing to sold out crowds. It’s no secret that these headliners can put on large theatrics for their shows. On the other hand, putting on a standout show can be a challenge for emerging artists. Fortunately, our #WebsiteWednesday this week will give any artist the power to turn their concert into an unforgettable experience by adding a third dimension to their music:
Intorno.xyz.intorno
Intorno creates a 3D musical experience by allowing the audience to connect with the music around them through artist-controlled speaker channels. Sound moves and changes between the speakers to create a soundscape for the audience through the physical movement of the music. Intorno’s intuitive 3D technology is compatible with all professional speakers and is fully customizable, so artists can engage with every crowd like never before.

Their most innovative tool is the control pad instrument, which is designed for the artist to control the 3D sound in the room. The 3D experience is created in real time by modifying audio levels being played through each speaker in the room. By giving artists the freedom to customize which sounds are coming from where, each audience is treated to a unique show.

We thought we could use this new domain extension to communicate even more who we are and what we do, alongside our brand name. Why pursue a traditional domain at all costs when it just doesn’t add any communicative value to your brand?  That’s why, being a project that deals with 3D Sound, architecture and acoustics, we thought that the .xyz extension could add some visual support in communicating that yes, we are about coordinates, space and three dimensions.

Also, as we try to change and disrupt standard practices in our industry, there’s nothing better than showing our people that we are about change, new practices, and new ways to use everyday tools.– Ludovico Vignaga, Founder of Intorno.xyz

Intorno was able to secure the brandable, memorable domain they wanted with .xyz, while also appealing to their biggest market, #GenXYZ. Intorno.xyz is the perfect fit for a disruptive technology that’s changing the live music experience as we know it today.
