Web community management
Like a garden, an online community needs loving cultivation; that’s my day job. I post and schedule content, moderate comments, and chat on Twitter and Facebook with followers from Spain to Singapore.
Some people follow sports. I follow City Hall. Curious about how Toronto works? Every month I write a cheat sheet for the City Council agenda that leaves out the boring parts and explains the rest in plain language. I also livetweet City Council and committee meetings.
As a techie, I aim to make myself obsolete. To that end, I do quick, basic website-building workshops, plus long-term collaborative design processes.
And I help bring activists, designers, and other awesome media-makers together at the Allied Media Conference (but not during an election year).
