He previously served in several roles at TNW, including Editor-in-Chief. He left the company in April 2016 for pastures new.

At the Dublin Web Summit last month we conducted so many interviews that we’re still bringing them to you now. One person I caught up with was Kyle York of DNS and email service provider Dyn, a company that deals in “the plumbing” side of online life for a large client list, including The Next Web.

York talks us through the company’s story and why it recently raised its first funding round – a whole eleven years since the company was founded. We also discuss two cities called Manchester. Dyn is based in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA; I’m based in Manchester, UK. We’re both trying to encourage and promote our local startup ecosystems. Maybe we should become twin cities?
