A design and policy proposal for improving the democratic quality of social media Marc Smith…
For those in the Bay Area there is an event next week of particular interest to community managers, platform developers, researchers, marketers, and software developers: at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View on June 10th is the 2009 Online Community Unconference. This year 300-400 online community and social media professionals will attend with 50-60 collaborative sessions devoted to social media and online community topics.
“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.”
I attended last year and found it to be a valuable use of time: many practioners in the social media space will attend and some will self-nominate and present on a wide range of topics of relevance. I plan to be there again this year, hope to see you there!
