Here is a conference you may want to visit. At first glance it may look like one of those self-help “free” webinars but it is a very relevant topic with a great speaker. Plus it is on the web.

Social Media Today builds Wordframe based communities like Smart Data Collective ( for data ,BI,Analytics people) Best of the Blogs ( for progressive bloggers), Energy Collective ( for Green energy enthusiasts,thinkers and researchers) ,Social Media Today ( for understanding and leveraging Social Media and Networks) and My VenturePad (for Entrepreneurs).

These communities basically work as online newspapers by aggregating and moderating the RSS feeds of thousands of bloggers (for some sites) and their sites. I have written on Wordframe’s concept of content driven communities and Ning’s concept of community driven content earlier.

Disclaimer- I have worked as an evangelist to SMT , have been awarded the Blogger of the Week once (for my article on R).

For other conferences you may also want to see AnalyticBridge ‘s page on conferences.

Disclaimer -I have been awarded the Member of the Month twice by them.

I like the third party apps of Ning better than the old outdated format and themes. One Ning application can actually serve as a competitor to Wordframe – that is the RSS application ( see feed on my page ).Wordframe has capabilities for even category level filters so Analytics category  feed goes to Smart Data ,Internet category feed gets published on Social Media (when i am lucky) and my attempts at poetry go to Best of The Blogs.

The Decision Stats group (on Linkedin) also has a group on AnalyticBridge.

But why join so many communities and go to webinars ? Because knowledge is useful and productive and fun – and I have a personal motto of learning one new thing a day .

Where do you get the time ?Just sleep one hour less and devote that one hour purely to your self learning for yourself.8 hours to the boss, 4-5 hours to the family.

1 hour to yourself ??

Sounds reasonable, eh  🙂

So try this one –
