Yesterday I attended Community Next, a great online communities conference organized by Noah Kagan that took place at Stanford University. There were some excellent speakers and panelists including founders Jake Nickell and Jeffrey Kalmikoff from skinnyCorp (parent company of Threadless), Tara Hunt of Citizen Agency, the Dogster guys Ted Rheingold, John Vars and Steven Reading, Markus Frind of Plenty of Fish, James Hong co-founder of HotOrNot, uber-evangelist Guy Kawasaki of Garage Technology Ventures, Joe Hurd from VideoEgg, Sean Suhl co-founder of SuicideGirls and it was especially great to finally meet Drew Curtis, who runs Fark. Here are some photos of the conference, including these speakers and several others.
Congratulations to Noah and his crew for putting on a really engaging conference. I’ll be back next year for sure.
