I am trying an experiment. I just created a community forum for end users of web conferencing technology (or those who are interested in the subject but haven't tried it yet). The website can be accessed via www.wcc-forum.com
The site is a bulletin board and open forum for anyone with an opinion, story, question, or passion for web conferencing. It is not associated with any vendor and you can talk openly and honestly about your experiences. Thinking of trying a new web conferencing technology? See what other people think of it. Wondering if somebody has hit a problem you are having? Post a question.
I created categories for several of the web conferencing vendors, along with places to talk about resellers, service providers (including Webinar Success of course!), event production, and audio conferencing. If I start to see a lot of messages dedicated to a new topic, I'll add it as a category. I want this to be an easy place to find information... A global repository of collected wisdom from all the users of all the conferencing technologies out there.
You can browse the site and look at posts without any registration or login. If you want to post a message, you'll need to sign in (which takes seconds and is free). There is ZERO spam, advertising, or list building associated with the site. Registering will not add you to ANY marketing lists.
The forum is brand new and unsullied by content at this point. So you'll see a list of empty categories. I hope you'll get to work and fill them up. I'll be promoting it on other sites and with press releases soon. But as loyal readers of The Webinar Blog, you get first notification and first crack at the site.
I think we all have a lot to share with each other. Let's build a community for the greater good.
