Q4 - September 11, 2009: How can you get better at building communities? What books and blogs should you read? What courses can you take? What things should you experience? What would make any community manager better?
Q3 - September 11, 2009: What's the best way to invest money in a community? If you had $50,000 to spend on your community what would you do with it? Hire a new community mgr? Host an event? Build a new website? Treat the top members? etc...
September 11, 2009 - RANDOM: Hey everybody - thanks for spending your Friday afternoon with us! @RichMillington is our guest host today so feel free to introduce yourself here and shoot any questions you want us to address.
Q2 - September 4, 2009: Fan clubs have been around for a long time (ex: Burger King Kids Club, band fan clubs, etc.). How can a brick & mortar co. take their fans and evolve it into an online community? What best examples have you seen of this? (From Jason Peck)
Q1 - September 4, 2009: Kicking things off -- How do you manage a well-known 'influencer' who is possibly undermining the purpose of the community? Abusing that power vs. utilizing it for the purpose of the community.
Friday, August 28, 2009: Q2. Building and earning trust is one thing; BREAKING trust of our members is another--and can wound or kill a community. What causes us to break trust with our members, and how do we recover? (if you have specific examples, share 'em!)

Q4: Friday August 7, 2009 - Time is always an issue for many of us in this hyper-connected space. From a member's perspective, how do you manage your use and activity to where it's still beneficial to yourself and those communities?
Friday July 31, 2009; Q2:Tell us about any features or franchises you’ve created within your community that have taken off? Example: I created the GOLO profiles, where I interview and profile a single member. People love it. What do you do?
