These slides were for "27 (Fun!) Ways to Kill Your Online Community," a solo presentation I delivered at South by Southwest Interactive 2011 on March 13 in Salon K at the Hilton in Austin, TX.

As part of the presentation, I discussed 27 ways, beliefs and tactics that would help you to kill your online community as quickly as possible.
