Hello, everyone! I'm writing as one of the organizers of
RecentChangesCamp Montreal. Many of you have received personal
invitations to this event over the last few weeks, but I wanted to make
sure I didn't miss anyone in the Creative Commons community who'd like
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]].
No keynotes, no hours-long slide presentations, no conference tracks:
the emphasis of RecentChangesCamp is on bringing together smart,
talented people for productive, peer-to-peer talks.
Wikis have in the last few years proved to be a powerful engine for the
co-creation of Open Content text and images. We hope that wiki-like
systems will be instrumental in producing commons-based music, video and
other Free Culture works. If you are interested in the Creative Commons,
in peer-based collaborative construction, I hope you'll consider joining
us in Montreal in May.
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 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).
