Tomorrow is the beginning of RoCoCo Montréal 2007, a three-day unconference held right here in Montréal. It starts at 9:30 on Friday at the SAT and runs until Sunday evening. It's for all who are interested in wikis, weblogs, and creators interested in collaborating in on-line spaces.

RoCoCo is organized with OpenSpace Technology, where we collectively decide on an agenda where everybody has a chance to speak. There's no artificial divide between speakers and audience, so you can lead your own session if you have something to say. Think of RoCoCo as a real-life wiki, where anybody can contribute.

A detailed explaination of what RoCoCo is about can be found on this invitation. I'm inviting you because I'm flying out on Saturday and can't make the whole conference, but I really hope you come.

There will be discussions on:

  • What projects people are doing around the world
  • Development of collaborative tools like wikis, free wifi networks, content management systems, etc.
  • Techniques for building collaborative communities
  • Best practises for inspiring self-managment and self-policing
  • Starting up new projects
  • Plans for future collaborations

So how can you attend? I thought you'd never ask!

I probably can't attend due to a conflict of schedules. Too bad, as it sounds like it will be interesting.

That's terribly surreal.

I don't know how far they've gotten in allowing people to participate remotely, but you could see if you can take part that way.

Completely off topic.
Since you were recently working on Ubuntu, you must have been exposed to Bazaar. I'm trying to figure out what its strong and weak point are as a source control system. What did you think of it?

Re: Completely off topic.
I think it has lost this round in the source control wars.
