Despite the fact that I have split this subject over two weeks, we have still struggled to fit everything in. Last week the focus was very much on the business benefits of community websites. This time around we concentrate on the user. Why do they participate in online communities and how do we encourage them to get involved?
We also look at the challenges of starting and nurturing a community and tackle issues such as flame wars, moderation and gaining critical mass.
Later in the show, inspired by Jamie’s post on the forum we get into the subject of time management and how we deal with working from home.
Finally, we also take a look at the week’s web design news which includes:
- An excellent article from Think Vitamin that helps you bug fix in IE7
- The upcoming launch of HTML mastery by Paul Haine
- A quick look at the 2006 global intranet strategies survey
- The return this Christmas of the truly excellent 24ways.org
Oh yes, and Headscape is recruiting yet again!
