The Online Community Unconference East is a gathering of online community professionals - managers, developers, business people, tool providers, investors - to discuss experience and strategies in the development and growth of online communities. Those involved in online community development (and social software in general) share many common challenges: community management, tools, marketing, business models, legal issues. As we have found with our past events, the best source of information on all of these challenges is other knowledgeable practitioners.
The Online Community Unconference is inspired by the emerging "open space" conference format. (For an excellent description, see this News.com article on a past MashUp Camp.) There will also be plenty of time for networking.
Baruch College/CUNY campus is centrally located, and the Newman Conference Center provides plenty of breakout space to support a full day of learning and fun.
The price of admission is $195. Fee is fully refundable before Feb 1, transfereable after.
