Event Details

The Online Community Unconference is a gathering of online community practitioners - 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 CNN Money article on last year's Unconferences.)

An extensive Unconference FAQ has been posted here: http://www.forumonenetworks.com/ocu_faq

The Computer History Museum in Mountain View is a unique venue with plenty of parking and WiFi. Lunch and snacks will be provided, and the Museum exhibits will be open to the group during the breaks.

Potential topics include:



  • Online Community Metrics
  • New Opportunities with Social Media
  • Enterprise Communities: Hosting the Conversation
  • Online Community Management: 10 Years of Experience
  • Lessons Learned: Pitfalls and Best Practices in Community-Building
  • For Beginners: Laying a Solid Foundation for the Best Community

  • Engaging Community Members: Turning Lurkers into Participants
  • How to Grow Leaders Within a Community
