    Community Building Videos

    They say picture is worth a thousand words. Video then must be worth even more. So there has to be an advantage to video over text, at least in some circumstances. I personally prefer video a lot of the times.

    So, how about we share links to some good community building videos here?

    I just found a good one from Chris Pirillo which has some great advice: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsrqbgvwbJg"]YouTube- How to Build an Internet Community[/ame]

    Sorry for off topic, could not resist to post that;

    On lighter note I would like to post this, it is community related only

    Haha, nice GeeOne.

    I've got a couple of more, from Seth Godin.

    This is his Tribes speech from TED

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQGYr9bnktw"]YouTube- Seth Godin on the tribes we lead[/ame]

    Here's an interview about tribes:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6vpBDFoMqc"]YouTube- Seth Godin Explains Why You Need a Tribe[/ame]

    I think it should be obvious why this is relevant to online community building. I've never been a very big fan of a technical micromanaged approach to it, as if it's mathematics or something, but about being and offering something special that people would be attracted to: being a leader essentially. It is hard to do, and I've yet to really succeed at it, but it seems like the winning approach, and I think once we achieve it, it's far more fun than micromanaging keywords, merely starting "interesting" discussions etc.

    I was especially intrigued by the comments on Apple's iPhone vs. Nokia phones...
