Can anyone point me to someone with a best practice/case study in  convening and managing an online community for their brand or company, and who'd like to present it to over 1000 public communicators this October in Brussels?

I feel they could learn a lot from the private sector. More info below:

PS I've been quiet on G+ for a while, but I'm still listening! ;)

Anyone want a nice Gautier wardrobe? One careful owner. Ideal for a kid's bedroom, it's just over 1m across, the standard 60cm deep, and currently disassembled in my garage in Auderghem, Brussels. Best offer here or on eBay.

8 things that don't work in my new Dell venue 11

Well done Mathew. You're a great communicator.
A lawyer friend of mine (we have a few at the Commission) suggested that whenever I complain I invoke an Article of the ISO 9000 standard.
This is now applied by most major companies and forces their customer relations to specifically address my request in their yearly report to ISO and follow it up. In the worst case with VW, I  even got a letter of apologies signed from Mr Piesch himself (he then was the CEO). You gotta use the system...

So +Corinne Wenner you asked for an opinion... mine is that disabling comments isn't helpful when you want people to share their opinion!

For what it's worth, the Council are not 'appointed'...

So, not available in Belgium. Why? Looking at similar remarks from other commenters, perhaps it would be better to ask what countries IS this channel avaiable in? And why is it not possible to charge outside those countries?

Very poor show to not provide this info in the About tab. One can only assume it's done by Americans, who don't seem to realise that there ARE other countries on the map...

Something for +Dan York ?

This item has been corrected. The web is about to have its big bang. About 1,000 new generic top-level domain names, or gTLDs (the last bit of an internet address, such as the com in qz.com) will come into existence this year. On Feb. 4, anybody will be able to create and start running a website on...

This is the sort of thing that gives one hope for the EU online public sphere.

On the one hand you have a bunch of people (votewatch) not just collecting and presenting data, but also sharing it. Allowing other people (like my colleague Chandler) to add value to it in 1000 different ways.
A good example of an ecosystem in emergence.
