"Recent Changes Camp Canberra" is being held at the University of 
Canberra, 11 August 2010: 

This is free to attend, with the program determined on the day. The 
topic is the use wikis and other online collaboration tools.

Previously I have attended and presented at similar format "Bar Camp" 
events and found them very interesting and useful: 

But it takes a while to get used to the fluid format used. Unlike a 
conventional conference, such "un-conferences" have less structure and 
at times are confusing, but fun.

It can be disconcerting when presenting, as few in the audience seem to 
be paying attention, instead typing on their smart phones, tablets and 
netbooks. But what they are doing (mostly) is listening to what you are 
saying and discussing it online with others in the room and elsewhere. 
Also the attendees can look and talk like cyberpunks, but turn out to be 
senior government and industry people.

Register online via the Wiki (you have to edit the wiki page, rather 
than fill in a form):
