Derek Powazek on
user-generated community-first publishing
There’s a webcast up of Derek Powazek’s talk about community-first publishing at the Knock Knock conference. It’s definitely worth viewing, it’s a very interesting and hot space—and exactly the market we’re targeting with PublicSquare, due out within the next month. Exciting!
Some good points from his presentation:
- Threadless rocks!
- Design for selfishness—what’s in it for your community?
- Design for all 3 of creators, editors, and consumers
- Let people publish their stuff elsewhere—the value is in the community, not in ownership to the content
- Loved the phrase “scarcity of scarcity” about a world with an infinite number of pages
