Thank you Forum One for organizing the Community Unconference…

June 7, 2007 at 6:49 am 1 comment

I had a great time yesterday “peering” with a lot of super passionate people focused on online communities at the Forum One Unconference.  This was my first unconference and I really liked the semi-structured approach of open space events.  Not familiar with unconferences, check out this site

There were lots of good sessions, but as usual the best take-aways were meeting people doing what I do from lots of other companies.  I got to lead a spirited session on Engaging Influencers through Recognition programs.  It was great fun to talk about some of what we are doing and talk with so many others interested in creating their own programs focused on community leaders.  This session included a great conversation in particular about the benefits and challenges of reputation management systems.  I owe a post on my overall views on this topic soon…so stay tuned.  ROI was another very spirited session…and I guess a hot topic based on traffic here to my recent blog post on ROI.

The session we didn’t have, that I will host next time, is to gather those of us doing this work at large scale.  It was great to meet people from Cisco, Amazon, Ebay, Yahoo, Disney and Intuit – I think we could have really benefited from grabbing a room and wallowing – this is a must do for next time.

That’s it for today!
