Telsters to run First Ever TelCamp Toronto

August 3, 2009

TORONTO, August 3 /PRNewswire/ — The self-named Telsters community,
owners of the new communications-centric .tel domains launched in March 2009,
today announced the first ever TelCamp in Canada. It will be hosted by some
of the leading .tel owners and developers including Scott Smith, “Freaky
Steve” and Mark Kolb.

“TelCamp 1 Toronto is a community-driven event where attendees define the
agenda and collaborate on themes and issues surrounding .tel domains,” says

Scott Smith, President of TelCartel.com. “Attendees will also learn
techniques to help create new and compelling uses for the domains from
community experts.”

.tel domains are low-cost, low-tech online sites under the control of the
owner where data can be stored and quickly updated on any device connected to
the internet, including mobile. It can be as simple as an online business
card listing all contact information the owner wants to share. However, many
in the .tel community harness the power of dynamic data being stored in a
.tel domain and use them for more complex solutions such as listing weather
reports and city events (bigcity.tel) or a comprehensive public interactive
service directory (yorkregion.tel).

Telnic Limited, the Registry Operator for the .tel domain, will be
represented at the event by Communications Director Justin Hayward: “TelCamps
are a great initiative that the .tel community has come up with, and we’re
very pleased to be able to be present at TelCamp 1 Toronto. It’s important to
celebrate the innovation that’s coming from within the .tel community and
Steve and Mark are amongst the most active and successful .tel pioneers so
this will be a great learning event for all.”

People wishing to attend this free event taking place from 8.30 a.m. on
Saturday
15th August can sign up on the TelCamp 1 Toronto wiki at
