Ignite Ann Arbor 1

This is the blog for Ignite Ann Arbor, an event where a wide variety of speakers enlighten us with 20 slides in 5 minutes.  The first Ignite event in Ann Arbor is being planned for late June.  Email organizer@igniteannarbor.org if you are interested in helping out!

Five minutes, 20 slides.  What would you say? We’re on the lookout for interesting speakers.  If you are interested, add your name to this list.  Remember, this is a chance to share something fascinating or inspiring with the community.

What is Ignite?

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers.

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis.  Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world.
