Online communities have been a fundamental element of open source culture for years. As community experts, what have we learned about dealing with difficult people, trolls, and other disruptive influences in our communities? What qualities and practices make an open source community run successfully?
How can our open source community expertise be applied to improve Web 2.0 communities? What can we learn from Web 2.0 communities about ease of use and community building? How can technologies like Ajax, wikis, blogging, and more be used to improve open source communities?
If you are interested in taking your community to the next level or are interested in building a unique community, you can attend our session and discuss these questions and more with our panel of community experts.
