Forum One: Next Online Community Roundtable

Version 5

    The next Online Community Roundtable will be held Thursday, October 18th in SF. Autodesk will host.


    The event is free, and you are invited! PLEASE RSVP TO by Monday, October 15.


    The Roundtables have been a regular, but intentionally "under the radar" gathering since July of 2005. The intention of the events is to provide an open and safe environment for community practitioners to share experiences and best practices. It's also an excellent excuse to have a cocktail and meet other interesting people in the space.





    The Landmark at 1 Market St



    Ground Rules:


    • No sponsorships. Host organization provides space, food and beverages

    • No pitches. Presentations should be about sharing experiences, having a discussion about a problem or issue you are facing, or reviewing a project or site you are working on.

    • The guest list is up to Bill & George.

    • Bill and/or George sets final agenda based on topic appropriateness and time available

    • "Soft" NDA: Blogging event is ok, unless presenter asks you not to.



    5:30 - 6:30 Networking hour.

    Drinks and food will be available.


    6:30 - 8:30



    After the networking hour, we'll share thoughts on community. We request that you bring a 1-2 slide deck to talk to. Topics can range from:


    • A report back from a conference

    • A new community that you have recently launched

    • A feature that you are developing, or are interested in discussing

    • Challenges that you are facing in developing, growing or managing your community

    • Or any other topic that you feel would be appropriate and enlightening to this audience.


    We try to keep the size of the group small (about 25 people) to ensure a quality group conversation. As such, we limit invitations. Inviting extra folks is no problem (especially if they are cool), but please have them rsvp to me so that we can have an accurate final headcount.


    It's going to be AWESOME!
