Find the official event at http://CMXSummit.com

CMX Summit is a new event bringing together the world’s greatest community minds to share unique perspectives, experiences and ideas all around community building. 

Our industry has never come together quite like this. We have Community Managers, Directors and Executives flying in from all over the world, representing brands like Google, Buzzfeed, TED, Huffington Post, Salesforce, Amazon, Autodesk, Adobe, Lyft, Apple, Facebook, Eventbrite, Yelp, Soundcloud, Moz, 500 Startups, Flipboard, Zozi, Yahoo, oDesk, Atlassian, Spark Capital, Nestle and many many more. 

Community comes hand-in-hand with humanity. Since the beginning of time people have formed communities to survive, innovate and thrive. 

Today, communities have expanded to massive scale that can exist beyond physical borders, involving millions of people. At the same time, online tools are making it possible for people to come together and help each other offline in exciting and innovative ways. 

More people are building communities for a living today than ever before in history. 

As the community space continues to grow rapidly, we felt that there needed to be a high quality conference to bring our industry together. We want to drive meaningful conversations around your experiences and ideas while being inspired by the unique thought leaders both from within the community space and from other fields. 

CMX Summit will not focus on social media marketing or advertising. Social media may be discussed but only when applied to building true community. 

By doing so, we hope we can create more opportunities for massively successful communities to be built all over the world by community builders who came away from this event inspired and with a sense of belonging to the community that we create here at the CMX Summit. 

Who is CMX Summit built for?
Community Builders - Anyone creating communities from the ground up, online and offline
Community Managers - Professionals responsible for growing and maintaining communities
CEO, Founders and Product Managers - Anyone creating products that require user-to-user interaction

And, final post for the day (been a productive one, sorry for taking over the stream). Wondering if there's an easy third-party twitter client that would enable downloadable / visualization of specific twitter chats (or hashtags). 

I think Storify would do this well... but am also looking at other options, especially ones where I could access the data in a spreadsheet (maybe as a .csv). Important information: timestamp, user, hashtag tracked, other hashtags used, content of the message, link (if applicable). 

Thanks. Good community, sorry that I've been removed from it for so long. 

I attended the first public demo of Google Glass last weekend in Durham, NC, and boy, am I sold on Glass, and as a byproduct, also on G+.

What's everyone doing for RSS feeds now that Reader is RIP? Just (finally) figured out an incredible method for digesting feed content using HootSuite... except the Syndicator app appears to be a bit buggy. 

Anyone else having that problem / concern?

Feedly all the way. I don't find IFTTT to work so well with Gmail (it supposedly is awesome for Outlook though) - anyone else have success with that?

Okay, perhaps this is a silly question. Is there a way to view a list of Facebook fans/likes for a page I manage, in order of when they liked the page?

Howdy folks.

I've been an online community manager since 1990, starting with CompuServe on the Computer Consultant's Forum, then senior sysop for ZDNet's Executives Online Forum, then lead sysop on the short lived AT&T Interchange (anyone remember that?).  One way or another I've been running online communities ever since.

My official role as community manager is Herder of Cats in the Internet Press Guild (of which I'm president). But as editor of several tech sites I'm also responsible for encouraging people to talk and keeping them friendly.

The lurker ratio is much higher today. On CompuServe we estimated 10 lurkers for every  person who posted a message. Now it's at least 10 times that.

People are more likely to be cranky online, and to say things to one another they would not say in public. I find that to be less true where there is good community management, and the existing community is self-policing (one of my favorites chides new members for using grammar incorrectly! though in a nice supportive way). But some topics always draw the flame wars, such as politics or music.

The tools for community management have gotten a lot worse though. I yearn for the sysop tools we had on CompuServe!

Other than that... really, it's just the same as it ever was.

Can anyone point me to resources on developing a login-based community (or good "case-study" communities) that has/have: blog content, accessible public/private resources, a public/private forum - and here's the clincher - that use(s) a common tagging/categorization structure across these content types?

Forgive my long sentence and what I'm sure is imperfect grammar.

Thanks!

Do y'all share user stories with your company? How do you keep the pipeline filled with interesting tales? How do you encourage the company to establish time and processes to take them in?

I'm working on a talk about finding and presenting stories to developers/managers/executives/everyone, and would love to hear more about how others tackle this. Pipelines are lots of work!
