SxSW09: What does a community manager do? THE PANEL! (please vote)


I’ve been invited to be a panel at 2009 SXSW Interactive Festival entitled “What Does A Community Manager Do?”. Aside from being deliriously happy to have an excuse to go to SXSW, I am also stoked by the opportunity to be on a panel with really smart and experinced people talking about online communities.

I’ll be joined by Jake McKee and Connie Benson, and Dave Peck (a.k.a. Britney Mason) will moderate.

Please vote for our panel! You have until August 28th.

  1. Bill,

    I just voted for your panel and hope I can attend SxSW this year.

    I wrote a blog post 2 weeks ago that compared community managers to quarterbacks, and what separates the C-rated community managers from the A-rated ones.

    If you’re looking for other opinions, check out the post at
