Wicklow Meeting 3

Discussion of building communities with Drupal.
Doesn't necessarily have to be technical! Talking design, hosting and selling communities... everything is welcome.

Some suggestions:

Organic Groups vs Groups
Drupal Commons versus Open Social
Enforcing configuration in Features in an install profile
What features clients want in communities
Do clients need consultancy to run a successful community
Difference between social intranet and communities (are there any?)
Selling communities and pricing
How to compete with proprietary solutions like Jive
