Ignite coming to Sebastopol on November 16

  • Sharebar

The popular fast-paced community event featuring multiple speakers that are given 5 minutes to share their passion with the world is coming (back) to Sebastopol on November 16.

The venue is Hopmonk Tavern on Petaluma Ave. (otherwise known as the northbound Hwy 116 route through downtown). There’s no cost to come, and while it looks like the number of available “tickets” has already sold out, you may still be able to slip in.

If you’re interested in presenting, the deadline is November 7. Details here.

It’s an interesting format: each speaker has to finish up within five minutes, and on top of that, they are allowed only 20 slides for their presentation which are auto-advanced every 15 seconds. So you have to make your point, quickly and directly. Ignite was started in 2006 by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Media and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, and it has quickly grown to a worldwide phenomena with events being held in over 100 cities around the globe.
