Hello, everyone! I'm writing to invite Wikimania organizers and
attendees to RecentChangesCamp in Montreal, 18-20 May 2007. Many of you
have already received personal invitations to attend RecentChangesCamp
Montreal; for those of you who we've missed, I wanted to send this
I realize this is somewhat off-topic; apologies in advance. Please feel
free to chide me with off-list email if you find this invitation
RecentChangesCamp is a world-wide "unconference" for wiki technologists,
wiki users and wiki admins. Also invited are people from related
technology and community practises, as we look for common ground on
community, collaboration, and self-organizing behaviour. The event is
free of charge for all participants. The previous two RecentChangesCamp
events in Portland have been extremely fun and interesting for
RecentChangesCamp Montreal ("RoCoCoCamp") will be held in Montreal,
Quebec from 18-20 May 2007. It will be a three-day conference with the
agenda set by the participants, using [[Open Space Technology]].
We hope that RecentChangesCamp Montreal can provide a good "bookend" on
the summer for people organizing or planning to attend Wikimania in
Taipei. I think our "unconference" format is quite complementary to
Wikimania, and that our casual atmosphere makes RCC Montreal a great
place to test out talks or presentations for Wikimania.
If you would like to attend, please sign up on our wiki:
We're arranging lodging for a variety of budgets (from couch-surfing to
the Hyatt). Travel to Montreal can be quite inexpensive; North Americans
can find reasonable flights, and rail travel from the East Coast is both
accessible and affordable. Europeans on a budget are especially encouraged
to look at discount Transatlantic flyer Zoom Airlines.
Please check out our wiki if you have any questions; also feel free to
contact anyone in our all-volunteer organizing group. You can write to
me directly or call my cell phone (+1-514-554-3826).
