Techniques for Monitoring Online Communities: WebVisions Video

Our WebVisions panel about Techniques for Monitoring Online Communities was just released on video thanks to the wonderful team over at Strange Love Live.

I’m a little biased since I was moderating the panel, but I thought it went really well thanks to the amazing people who were part of the panel: Marshall Kirkpatrick, Justin Kistner and Nathan DiNiro. These three have some awesome tips and techniques that they shared during our session. Enjoy the 60 minute video!

WebVisions 2010: Monitoring Online Conversations with Free Tools

WebVisions SpeakerI am excited that I will be presenting at WebVisions again this year with a talk on Techniques for Monitoring Online Conversations with Free Tools. I’ll talk about the latest free tools and advanced techniques for monitoring online conversations across the social web to help you quickly and efficiently find information about people mentioning your organization or competition as well as finding information about general topics that interest you.

This is the 10th year for WebVisions, a three-day conference that explores the future of Web design, technology, user experience and business strategy from May 19 – 21, 2010 at the Oregon Convention Center.

They are still working on speakers and agendas, but here are a few speakers that I am already excited about!

  • Merlin Mann: Keynote (oooh, I hope he talks about Inbox Zero!)
  • Adam DuVander on mapping and location
  • James Keller and Raven Zachary on iPhone apps
  • Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone on designing social experiences
  • Tom Hughes-Croucher on web APIs

It’s a great conference, and the conference fees are really reasonable starting at $225 if you register before March 31 (less for students). It’s also a great excuse to visit Portland, OR in the spring!

Community 2.0 and WebVisions

I wanted to let people know about two upcoming conferences where I will be speaking in the next 2 weeks.

Community 2.0 May 11 – 13 (San Francisco)

I will be on a panel discussion at 2:15 on Tuesday about How to be a Kick-A$$ Community Manager with some rock star community managers:

WebVisions May 20 – 22 (Portland, OR)

I’ll be presenting here in Portland at WebVisions on Friday, May 22nd at 10:30am on the topic of Companies and Communities: Participating without being sleazy and will be covering many of the topics from my book.

The speaker list for WebVisions is a who’s who of cool people, and the conference is really reasonable to attend ($250 and under), so you should register if you haven’t already! They are also offering a very nice combo registration deal for Open Source Bridge if you need to register for both.

There are also a couple of special events during WebVisions that you won’t want to miss – you don’t even need to register to attend these!

I hope to see you at one or both of these events!
