I had a good time presenting a webinar this morning about managing online communities. As always, I recorded the whole thing for your infotainment:
Rich Millington from Feverbee gave a great talk at the MozCon event on building communities that people actually want to join. Lots in here that I have been discovering myself lately around creating a shared mission, and a sense of being an exclusive bunch. Well worth a watch.
I had a very interesting time at the Digital Evolution unconference and networking evening this week – wonderfully hosted by the Tinder Foundation and Google and with the irrepressible Will Perrin at the helm. Sadly I couldn’t make it to the proper conference the next day, but the buzz around the event was amazing and […]

Thanks to the top people at Learning Pool, here’s a great video of Donald Clark talking about learning theory through the ages.
Apologies for the light blogging of late. I’ve just been super busy and – if I am honest – a bit lacking in inspiration. Anyway. I’m starting a new online community based around people like you: folk who read this blog, get my newsletter and take part in my webinars. I’m guessing that we all […]
I was invited by James Cattell the other day to accompany him to a meeting to talk about what the best community software platforms are. I think we rather disappointed the people we talked to, in that neither of us could recommend a particular system. Instead we both advocated, in effect, a minimum viable community. […]
It’s been a while since I’ve run a live chat, so it’s probably a good time to do another. As for a topic, I think it would be really interesting to have a look at digital engagement and where things might be going in the future. After all, we are all pretty comfortable with doing […]
