The German Internet association eco e.V. honored our Founder and CEO Dirk Krischenowski yesterday evening with a special Award. During the yearly „eco Internet Award” Gala in Cologne, Dirk has been honored for his achievements on the new gTLDs, especially for cities and regions. In the laudatory speech the eco acknowledged his significant contribution on the subject of new Top-Level domains, not only for .berlin, but for other initiatives worldwide.
