Other topics[edit source]

Due to the format, there were quite a few other topics raised throughout the three days, in and out of the sessions. I found some of them to be very valuable and could be the topic of further discussions. How do we want to capture and continue these discussions? John Vandenberg (chat) 03:26, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

John, I reckon we simply give those events names (as I've done for lunch and dinner etc) and link them through to sub pages to add any notes, documentation, or links to further project pages. So if for example, you're referring to a dinner conversation on one of the nights, give that conversation a session name and list it in or around the appropriate day. Hopefully this keeps the structure of this archive as flat as possible, indexing all that happened in the "Session" section. Leighblackall 08:15, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

RCCx across Australia[edit source]

One of the topics raised in the last session was participants in RCC taking the RCC 'home'. MarkDilley and Peter Kaminski have coined the term 'RCCx' (RecentChangesCamp Expanded) for this, and is running one in San Francisco (University of Canberra/RCC2011/RecentChangesCamp Expanded). The participants in RCC came from most states in Australia, so we could organise similar RCCx in most capital cities in the next month or so. These mini-events would spread the word and enthusiasm.

I think these RCCx events only need to be about two hours, providing a broad overview of the topics covered in the RCC, and zooming in on whatever sessions the RCCx attendees would like to know more about.

As far as I can remember, the only states and territories not represented are QLD and NT. I am happy to take a holiday up to Brisbane (QLD) and organise an RCCx up there in the coming weeks. I can also host one in Armidale, especially if the education people know any good folk at the Education school at UNE who would be interested.

If a few other participants are also willing to run an RCCx, we can start listing them all on University of Canberra/RCC2011/RecentChangesCamp Expanded and spread the world. John Vandenberg (chat) 01:43, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

It might be worth contacting local organizers of Wikipedia 10 year birthday things to ask if they could help with a meet up to discuss that sort of thing in addition to who ever was local RCC wise? --LauraHale 01:54, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
Adelaide and Perth WP10 events were run by RCC attendees.
The event was held at a location which wouldn't be suitable, but the organisers ( are a wiki that might be interested. I've emailed Jani and asked him if he is interested.
I have no idea about the organisers or participants of the or event.
It looks like Leigh went to the event.

I can get along to anything within reach on Canberra, including regional towns, the coast, Sydney, and even Newcastle. Leighblackall 04:28, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

I'd be keen to attend (but not organise) any RCCx in regional or northern NSW, and would go as far as Newcastle, but probably not as far as Sydney. John Vandenberg (chat) 04:38, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Just letting you know that Chris and I are planning to organise an RCCx event (or WikiWednesday) in Sydney. I will keep everyone posted about the progress! Juttavd 07:08, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

We have one confirmed RCCx in Melbourne and three more being planned. Details at University of Canberra/RCC2011/RecentChangesCamp Expanded --John Vandenberg 20:38, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Sessions[edit source]

I think the red links should probably be removed. I don't know if they were all sessions. Maybe create an article for other notes related to at RCC discussions that people might find helpful? --LauraHale 05:34, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Let's give it until mid next week for others to settle back and add what they have in there. I know John is working on something for Wikis to Printed Books, and Kirsty and Jutta have notes, photos and mind maps to add too. Leighblackall 23:46, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
