Behind the Scenes of Web Communities Panel led by Jessamyn West
Ever wonder what goes on behind the websites you visit? How does an open forum work, and how much work does it take to keep it moving in the right direction? Join us for a look Behind the Scenes of Web Communities on Sunday, October 9 at 4:30pm in the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room. We'll be taking a look at a variety of sites that run on user contributions from the people who keep an eye on those contributions: Jessamyn West, community manager for Ask MetaFilter; Rob Malda, aka CmdrTaco, founder and recently-resigned editor-in-chief of Slashdot; Cliff Lampe, Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan's School of Information, and Andrew MacLaren, productions librarian and moderator for AADL's recently concluded Summer Game.
