The official wiki for bpmCamp 2010 is up (and the landing page has been updated accordingly).  The direct link to the wiki is www.bpmCamp.org/wiki which forwards you to a Google “Sites” wiki.  Although it arguably isn’t the best wiki product, we use a fair number of Google apps and the wiki functionality has definitely improved over time.  It also doesn’t require you to learn a wiki-fied markup language – you just have to remember to click the “Edit Page” button. Unfortunately I don’t didn’t see a way to make the site “public” while hosting it in the bp3 subdomain.  So, if you want access drop us an email  (bpmCamp  at  bp-3.com) and I’ll get you invited pronto.  Even if you don’t think you can attend, you can participate in the wiki discussions.  There’s also a mailing list attached to the wiki that you can join (a Google Group for bpmCamp Stanford 2010). Looking forward to getting the discussions started!  Only 59 days left… (As Sandy points out below, you can just join the bpmCamp google group to get access to edit the wiki!)
  • You can at least make the Google site publicly viewable, even if you can’t allow people to just sign themselves up: I’ve done this with other sites that are under a specific domain. From the site management page, select Sharing, then “Anyone in the world may view this site” in the Advanced Permissions settings.

    You can also use the Google Group as credentials for editing the site by adding the group email address as a collaborator on the site: see http://googleenterprise.blogspot.com/2009/08/sharing-with-groups.html for more details (although I haven’t tried this myself). Apparently it detects changes in group membership and applies permissions accordingly.

  • Sandy –
    ok – I made it viewable publicly. At least for now :)
    (you have to first enable this option in the overall domain management, which is why i couldn’t see this choice initially)

    I also added the group to the “collaborators” to encourage participation.

    Thanks for the tips!
