Online Community Management and Growth Best Practices To Be Discussed at Online Community Unconference June 6th


Alexandria, VA – May 3, 2007

The Online Community Unconference is the premiere unconference for 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. The best source of information on all of these challenges is other knowledgeable practitioners.

The Unconference, scheduled for June 6, will be held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

The Online Community Unconference is inspired by the emerging “open space” conference format, where attendees set the agenda and all are encouraged to present their ideas. There will be plenty of breakout space and be dedicated time for networking.

Current attendees include senior staff from the following organizations: AOL,, Cisco Systems, Common Craft, Dwell Magazine, GreatSchools, PayPal, Techsoup, Walt Disney Internet Group and Yahoo.

The price is $195 ($175 before May 12th). The event is expected to sell out in the next 3 weeks.
