Happy to answer questions about anything...community management, Ubuntu, Open Source, podcasting, music...let's have some fun!
For those of you who don't know me, a summary of my background (the details are on http://www.jonobacon.org/about/):
I am a professional community manager and I have been actively working to explore and grow the profession of community management and how we build collaborative communities.
By day I work at Canonical at the Ubuntu Community Manager (since 2006), running a team of community managers who work across a large global community of contributors. I also run a consulting practice that consults to build internal and external communities in large organizations (e.g. Deutsche Bank, Intel, Sony Mobile, SAP...). My work here affords me an opportunity to explore different models of community management, governance, and working together, and the balance between volunteers and commercial interests.
I share much of the output of this work in my writing and speaking. I wrote The Art of Community by O'Reilly (http://artofcommunityonline.org/), now in its second edition, founded the main annual event for community leaders, the Community Leadership Summit (http://communityleadershipsummit.com/) (taking place this year on the 18th/19th July in Portland), and I speak at conferences about community management (e.g. .se Days, OSCON, Engadget Expand, FISL...) about the evolution of the profession, and the art and science of building things together.
Outside of work I have been podcasting for years in shows that relate to communities and Open Source. I co-founded LugRadio (http://lugradio.org/) that ran for four years, then Shot Of Jaq (http://www.kryogenix.org/shotofjaq.html), and recently started a podcast about technology, Open Source, politics, gaming and more called Bad Voltage (http://badvoltage.org/).
Community has also infected by other hobbies. I have been playing in metal bands since I was 16, and everything I have ever recorded and released was made available under a Creative Commons licensed. My last band, Severed Fifth, entirely crowd-funded our album, and the full archive of my work is at http://www.jonobacon.org/creative/
Ask away, friends. :-)
UPDATE: Thanks for a fun AMA, see you next time!
