ICE08: Community Watch
Yesterday I had a chance to speak on a panel at ICE08. My fellow panelists included Amber MacArthur (ex-CityTV, new media strategist, video blogger and all round great person), Kris Krug (aka kk+, President of Rain City Studios and one of the best known photographers in Canada – check out Static Photography) and it was hosted by Eli Singer from SEGAL Communications.

It was a great discussion and we covered a lot of ground including:
- our definitions of “community”
- why should people think about building communities
- how to invest / how to build
- what happens when it goes wrong
- great success stories
- great failure stories
It was nice to be able to have a discussion on a topic I am very passionate about with 2 people who are so active in the community in Canada. Oh ya - we were able to avoid the Mac vs. PC debate :-)
I think the ICE folks recorded the session, so hopefully I will be able to share it down the road.
Thanks to David for getting me involved.
