kate_eltham: Building Community Tutorial - more interactive and conversational than this morning's eBook seminar = more fun! #TOC

KatMeyer: i am seeing all my tweeps in real life. it is blowing my feeble mind. @kishizuka, @kate_eltham, @julietrelstad - all real! #toc

kate_eltham: @KatMeyer Just as mind-bending: listening to a seminar about how communities behave and participating in a live example simulatenously #TOC

kate_eltham: The more CONTENT you have the more members you will get. The more MEMBERS you have the more CONTENT you will get. #TOC

kate_eltham: I was going to say "Duh" but then remembered how many companies screw that up. #TOC

alanriley: RT @kate_eltham: People will spontaneously form communities whether you are involved or not #TOC

kate_eltham: Building Communities seminar: This is good stuff. Pitched just right, imho. #TOC

kate_eltham: "The job of companies is to work out how to align their business goals with what community users are trying to transact/do/achieve." #TOC

KatMeyer: RT @RonHogan: #toc @kate_eltham wants to play TOC Bingo -- ok, but "what's the business model?" has already come up, too.

kate_eltham: #toc @Ron_Hogan what about "ecosystem" or "Gen Y"?

kate_eltham: But social media is now doing the curation instead of traditional intermediaries. So you can discover free content ... for free. #toc

KathrynC: @kate_eltham: #toc @Ron_Hogan micropayments; community-driven

kate_eltham: If there was a tag cloud for the "Future of News" panel, "business model" would be in 72pt font #toc

KathrynC: #toc @kate_eltham danger of YouTube asethetics; funny cats trump all news

kate_eltham: We've heard about using community to participate in finishing products. Toby Buckell is an author who was finished by community. #TOC

kate_eltham: Writers want to know about process. I imagine a lot of Toby's online community is made up of other aspiring and emerging authors. #TOC

kate_eltham: Patrick Neilsen Hayden: "Editors are always looking for authors who can keep an audience engaged & entertained on a variety of topics" #TOC

kate_eltham: PNH: "In fiction readers are shopping not just for one-off books but for reliable authors, someone they can have a relationship to" #TOC

kate_eltham: PNH: "In the last decade, have a good track record of finding good authors by hanging around the internet and finding smart people." #TOC

kate_eltham: PNH: Tor.com is a sandbox for experimentation. #tOC

kate_eltham: #toc @RonHogan Bingo! Ron said "raising all boats." ;-p

kate_eltham: PNH: Tor.com is meant to be an actual online place that readers enjoy hanging out in. Not a channel for a bunch of press releases. #TOC

kate_eltham: Toby Buckell: Honest & authentic desire to engage customers produces more long term results than simply vomiting content does. #TOC

kate_eltham: TB: Blogs tend to facilitate "talking down to" voice, one-to-many communication. Twitter levels the playing field. #TOC

kate_eltham: #toc Bingo again! Ron used his tupperware party metaphor - which I love by the way.

kate_eltham: PNH: Bestow credit on as many authors as possible. "Whuffie" again. #toc

kate_eltham: PNH: Book as social network is different but also profoundly the same. Ppl have always created social experiences around what's cool. #TOC

kate_eltham: #toc @doctorow asks what can Tor do for authors who are already doing as well or better online on their own?
