Tips on running a successful online community

Still flushed from the success of the Oxford Flickr Exhibition and having given a lot of recent thought to just how much we’ve achieved as a group in the last three years it seemed a good subject to tackle.
The talk seemed to go down very well with more than a few laughs elicited from the crowd. I had a really great time and the Leeds lot are a really nice bunch of people. It’s good to see the grassroots level geekery flourishing all over the country.
20:20 style talks are pretty tricky and if I learnt one thing it’s not have so many bullet points in my notes, there’s really only time for one nugget per slide. It was a lot of fun though and I’m going to see if JP is up for trying them out at a future Oxford Geek Night.
Thanks to everyone at Leeds for a great night.
