edit RoCoCo/RecentChangesCamp MontrealRecentChangesCamp model that unites wikiers, bloggers, users, developers, artists, academics, activists, inventors, video editors, and other creators interested in Collaboration, Creativity and Self-Management. The bi-lingual conference takes place over a three-day weekend in Montreal, Canada.
As with the Recent Changes Camps in Portland, OR in 2006 and 2007, the meeting will be organized following Open Space technology, a collaborative building of the agenda. Wikis are the key topic of the meeting, but space will be given to the wireless community and to people interested in collaboration, creativity and self-management. In an Open Space format, organization becomes Democratic.
edit The Open Space Model
RoCoCo is formatted on the Open Space model, which encourages groups and individuals to self-organize the agendas and solve complex problems on the fly. This structure operates on four basic principles:
- Whoever comes is the right people.
- Whatever happens is the only thing that could have.
- Whenever it starts is the right time.
- Whenever its over, its over.
The agenda for conversations will be suggested by attendees on the first day in the morning. Materials and space for the group to collectively organize the agenda will be provided. Of course, since this is an Open Space, the opportunity for new sessions and agenda options to be added is available through the conference.
edit RoCoCo Camp 2007
The conference will take place from Friday, May 17 to Sunday, the 18th at the Société des arts technologiques (SAT) at 1195 St-Laurent, Montréal. Admission is free thanks to the generous support of the sponsors.
edit Goals for RoCoCo
Excerpted from the RoCoCo Invitation:
By the end of this meeting we want to have:
- A better map of each other's projects and involvements
- A broad understanding of what is going on in collaborative tools development (wikis and other collaborative text editing tools) and other community collaboration support platform (such as CMS, wifi network, community portals...)
- Techniques for individuals and groups wanting to inject more collaborative practices into their work.
- Sharing of experiments, practices and questions about self management issues.
- Recommendations for actions by individuals and organizations interested in collaborative practices and tools
- Sharing of creative experiments
- Seeding of common projects
- Plans for future collaborations
edit Remote Participation
Participation in the RoCoCoCamp isn't limited to conference attendees in Montreal. There will be options to people to follow along with discussions and ideas via the internet and the RoCoCo wiki.
edit About the Name
RoCoCo Camp is the Montreal-based camp inspired in part by the RecentChangesCamp held yearly in Portland, OR. As a biligual event, the Montreal RecentChangesCamp idea was to present a French title to make it significant for French-speaking people. RoCoCo is a non-recursive acronym, for "Rencontres sur la Collaboration, la Créativité et l'Autogestion" (Meetings on Collaboration, Creativity and Self-Managment.)
Because the event is in Canada, the conference is designed to be in both English and French. The idea is that people who can help with translation will be available during most sessions for whisper translation or text translation.
edit AboutUs flier for event
The AboutUs wiki joins the wiki community in a big way in the last 8 months! We are excited to bring wiki software and more importantly the wiki way to an internet wide audience.
AboutUs is a wiki whose goal is to create a free and valuable Internet resource containing information both about websites and other community created topics. The site was pre-populated with information about many different websites and thousands of updates are now being made by people each day.
edit Event recap
RecentChangesCamp Montreal, aptly named RoCoCo - a wiki style bar camp brought together some amazing minds from the wiki world. An unconference in style, a physical representation of wiki - these wiki camps let people decide the agenda and purpose of why they are there.
Participants at RoCoCo spanned from the West Coast of North America to Europe.
edit Developers get together
Nine wiki developers at RoCoCo formed a collaborative group to better communicate amongst wikis. A weekly IRC meeting is planned for the first Tuesday of each month at 21:00 GMT on irc.freenode.net, #wikiohana. Among the topics to be discussed are OpenID, wiki markup and an extended interwiki / sisterwiki map. A bot is in place to capture discussions and the chat room is open for use any time for those interested. Notes on the collaborative efforts can be found at .

Featured Text -- At our core, wikis are about collaboration, creativity and self-management. Which is why we love to gather for collaborative sessions full of these ideals. One such event is the now annual RoCoCo Camp in Montreal. Taking place this weekend, the RoCoCo Camp features an Open Space model for the agenda, allowing participants to self-organize the flow of conversation as the event happens. Because of this, topic areas going into the conference are broad, but the focus largely is on wikis, with space for discussion and thoughts on anything relating to collaboration, creativity and self-management. Remote participation via the internet is also available. Sponsors for the 2007 RoCoCo Camp include: Atlassian, Google, AboutUs, The Keiki Project, Socialtext Incorporated, The SolSeed Movement, Wikia and WikiHow.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Good: The title tag is a good length.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “FrontPage - RoCoCo”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Warning: This page has more than one H1 heading. It should have just one.
- H1 headings for this site's home page:
- “RococoCamp Montreal”
- “Keep in touch”
RoCoCoCamp.info in search results
You can see below how most search engines will display this site's home page in search results. The title is used as the link to the page, and the meta description appears below the title.
Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.RoCoCoCamp.info or RoCoCoCamp.info. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.

- Good: Your website resides at www.RoCoCoCamp.info, and RoCoCoCamp.info is permanently redirected to it.
