I’ve just published a post over at the Citizen Agency blog about developer networks – what they are, why you’d want one (and that we can help you create and run one!).
Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that I left the BBC last June to be a partner in a new consultancy start-up called Citizen Agency in San Francisco.
Having been very much involved with the setting up of backstage.bbc.co.uk, the BBC’s award winning (photo) developer network, one of the services we’re offering at Citizen Agency is developer network consultancy.
We reckon we’re one of the first specialist agencies to offer it, especially seeing as there are only a limited number of people who actually have created such propositions successfully in the ‘web2.0’ era. And most of them still work for the companies they set them up for. Developer Networks also fits nicely with the community-orientated values Citizen Agency holds.
Seeing as I don’t carry advertising on my blog, I thought I’d write this shameless plug to advertise myself instead. If you think I or Citizen Agency might be able to help your start-up or established company, please drop me a line: ben (at) citizenagency.com.
