#ThinkUpMtl 2 - June 21st
It’s that time again!
We have scheduled #ThinkUpMtl 2 for June 21st at Kai Design Studio.
Since this is the first #ThinkUpMtl and we are still growing our community we have decided to propose some topics in advance, but please feel free to suggest a few.
- The Future of Social Bookmarking
- Initiating and Sustaining Online Discussions
- Members vs. Subscribers
If you have any suggestions for other topics or you feel the above are not up to par let us know on our Facebook page.
The event is free, but there is a limited number of seats available, so only register if you are definitely showing up!
As an added bonus I hear the guys at KAI are great bartenders and they have a few special drinks planned for us (It is a pay bar, the drinks will be around 3$ - not bad).
So get your thinking caps and I hope to see you all there!
Want to know what you missed last time? Check out the recap post and pics on Facebook.

Who’s ready for another #ThinkUpMtl?
With the recent success of our first #ThinkUpMtl it’s time to start planning for the June edition.
That being said, we want to hear from you!
If you attended the first edition of #ThinkUpMtl we would like to know what you thought - the pros and the cons? What we can do better or different?
Also, please feel free to suggest some topics and drink ideas to the Kai bartenders :)
Let’s get our thinking caps on.
The Power of Community
Look up, it’s a cheesy title!
However, we all know it to be true. Since I’m still trying to figure out exactly what ThinkUp should be I’ve decided to to do what I do best, build the ThinkUp community by leveraging the communities I already lead or contribute to - we’ll start with PressWork!
PressWork is side project I co-founded with @bavotasan. I’ll make this brief, this is not a pitch for PressWork even though it’s awesome and you should try it, PressWork is an open source WordPress framework and we have built a very vocal and passionate community around it, it’s the perfect fit, I hope, for ThinkUp.
What makes an open source community successful online and offline, at least in my opinion, is the open debate and conversation that transpires amongst its members or prospective members that help drive the project further along.
Since I’m also one the community leaders, organizers, or whatever you would like to call me for WordPress Montreal, why not get them involved too :)
I see ThinkUp being something where anybody from any community can propose a topic for conversation.
So, let’s see where this takes us …
Where to ThinkUp?
There are many meetup types - social, learning, mob, etc .. ThinkUp can be anything we want it to be, so where to host it is the question?
Most gatherings tend to take place in bars or restos, which is cool, especially at a known “tech” hangout. However, an event space with a bar or an agency that opens it’s doors to the community for public consumption is also cool.
So, I’m on the hunt and looking for suggestions …
