Stack Exchange Q&A site proposal: Community Leaders

I'm supporting a proposal to create a new Q&A website for anyone running or interested in running a user group or technical community to connect and discuss the business of running a user group or technical community..

It's built on the same software as stackoverflow.com, a hugely popular site where over seven million programmers help each other with difficult programming problems. On Stack Overflow the audience votes for the best answer, so the answer you want is usually right at the top, not on page five.

I'm hoping that a site for anyone running or interested in running a user group or technical community to connect and discuss the business of running a user group or technical community. would have the same kind of network effect and turn into an amazing resource.

The proposal process is going on here:

Community Leadership Town Hall – Tulsa TechFest Style!

Community Leadership Town Hall - Tulsa


Community Leadership Town Hall - Tulsa
November 11th, 2010 – Jay Smith

In many towns and cities across the country the town hall is the center of the community.  The town hall is where the local governments keep offices, serves as the main base for the Mayor, and is where citizens of the community come to work with the official representatives to share issues, ideas, and solutions that can make their community better. 

The Community Leadership Town Hall brings this concept to community leaders in your area.  The evening will be filled with discussions about issues, ideas, and solutions regarding creating, maintaining, and growing user groups and technical communities.   This will be a highly interactive night where everyone will have a chance to suggest a topic and voice their opinion.

Bring your questions, ideas, issues, and willingness to share to the Community Leadership Town Hall - Tulsa.

If you are a current or aspiring community leader please join us for the Tulsa TechFest pre-event on November 11th, 2010 from 7 – 10 PM.

Microsoft Helping to Launch National Day of GiveCamp

It is very exciting to see that Microsoft is stepping it up when it comes to helping developers give back to the community. 

Scheduled for January 14-16, 2011, to coincide with the MLK National Holiday, the National Day of GiveCamp will be a single day where GiveCamp events will be run simultaneously in multiple cities all over the US.

This is a cause that is very close to my heart and I have been working very hard to help bring the GiveCamp event to Northwest Arkansas.

It is also very exciting to see that many of these events will be using the Give Camp Starter Site.  This open source project hosted on codeplex has become a focus on mine in the recent months.

I look forward to seeing all the good that can happen on a single weekend and hope to get lots of feedback on what we can do in the next release of the starter site.

For those of you looking for assistance on getting the starter site up and running don’t hesitate to contact me.  I will also be posting some more detailed blogs about how to do common things in the starter site to allow you to customize it to your needs.
