In this new talk from Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu Community Manager, author of The Art Of Community, and founder of the Community Leadership Summit, he discusses the changing state of community management, and what opportunities and challenges lay ahead for this young science.

Bacon will cover the history of community management, it’s early leaders and innovations, and how the science of understand and growing collaborative behaviour is solidifying and changing with the advent of new technologies, social norms, and cultural challenges. Bacon will also cover the direct business opportunities for harnessing this new science, and some of the risks and pitfalls associated with it.

I have a copy of Art of Community that I had Jono sign at Community Leadership Summit 2010. There were so many questions generated from him material that the session spilled over, yet hardly anyone left. A lot of his material is before its time as many companies in the tech sector are just now understanding how to facilitate and utilize Community Managers.

Great job Jono

This has been one of my favorite conferences and it has really inspired me. I really wish I could have got a copy of his book.
