What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was thinking of putting on my reading list books, papers, and other resources that address different parts of the StackExchange ecosystem.

Another way to state this is that if I were to build a StackExchange like system (say for internal use at an organization) what should I read up on to get a rigorous understanding of the StackExchange class of applications.

Note: I am looking for aspects that are non-technical (as in not programming/hardware/infrastructure related):

  1. Organizational Aspects
  2. Community
  3. UX
  4. Editorial
  5. ROI
  6. Leveraging StackExchange like systems.

Further Note: I am NOT looking for technical details like the ones addressed by this question.

Hi, Thanks for the note Sha, I was actually looking for the organizational, UX, knowledge Management, Community Management, etc. side of the house (and not the technical) side of the house. – user1172468 Oct 21 '12 at 11:56
