Online Community Roundtable
We had a small but knowledgeable group at the OC Roundtable in SF this week. Instead of the usual presentation format, we spent the first 10 minutes brainstorming topics and then spent 90 minutes discussing. It was a really great and informative session. I think we will use this format more, moving forward. Also, I am probably going to start connecting the Roundtable with Susan Tenby’s Meetup… stay tuned.

Online Civility
I was interviewed by Information WeekĀ  aboutĀ  online civility, and the proposed blogger’s code of conduct becuase of this post on the OC Report:

Marketing & Online Communities
I am working on a research project that explores attitudes, best practices andĀ  techniques. The survey will be going out next week.
We are also starting to talk about our Marketing & Online Communities conference to be held in NYC on 11/8. As usual, this event will be small (90 people) and invite only. Should be fun, intensely focused, and informative.
