A Great Series of Posts on Community

I’ll keep it short & sweet today:

If you’re interested in Community development, both virtual and physical, and you haven’t been following David Crow then you need to head right on over to his blog and check out his recent series of posts on “Community 2.0“.

Some very cool stuff in his posts, and links out to lots of other resources. Well worth your time to give them all a read.

Enjoy!

Mr. Crow goes to Microsoft

No, that’s not the title of an upcoming children’s book – David Crow, TorCamp‘s resident instigator and founding father, announced over the weekend that he’ll be joing Microsoft Canada as of the beginning of June as a “Senior User Experience Advisor”.

To some it’s probably a surprising move but I think it makes a lot of sense – and it’s good to see that Microsoft is interested in folks who aren’t just going to toe the line. David’s a take no shit kind of guy and I like knowing he’ll be calling it like it is with the boys (and girls) at MS.

His title may say “Advisor” but as with anything Crow sinks his teeth into I’m guessing the better word will be “Advocate” – which is good for all of us.

Congrats and Good Luck Dave!

(As an aside “Mr. Crow goes to Microsoft” would probably be a great little Graphic Novel)
