If you’re in London, come out this Thursday night for drinks & great conversation around community (or whatever you want to talk about). We’re especially interested in hearing your thoughts about having a community focused conference later this year.

So… if you want to met other e-mint-ers or talk community, head to Shoreditch Thursday night at 6p. We’re be at the Old Blue Last pub – details:

Londoners – e-mint drinks – June 17

Come join us for drink on June 17th.

This e-mint London ‘mintup’ will be just a nice friendly social evening. One of our members has recommended a quiet little pub just off Oxford Street. No football or loud music! If we get there early and there are enough of us, we can monopolise the upstairs room. The pub does normal pub food too.

RSVP please (the event is free, buy your own drinks but we’d like to have an idea of numbers)

April conversations: thinking global-local and crowds

what we’ve been talking about on e-mint so far this month:

is it a good idea to merge individual country based communities into one global community? what issues might you encounter? as a community manager, what issues will you need to be prepared for?

farmville 🙂

is it a crime to say ‘world’ but yet only mean the country you live in? this is particularily (IMO) an american habit (world series anyone?!?) but it probably happens elsewhere.

building the community – does a crowd beget a crowd? we dipped our toe into social network analysis and maths and found Dr Michael Wu.
