Ignite Deux: The Speaker Schedule

We have twenty-one awesome talks and speakers for you this time. The talks range in subject matter from tech to community to art to business and then back to tech with a little law and science thrown in. Each series of talks will begin at the bottom of the hour. Since the talks (should) last only 35 minutes (five x seven = thirty-five) there will be plenty of time for networking and socializing.Each talk is 20 slides long and each slide is on for only 15 seconds. If a topic bores you, go get a drink! Chances are it will be done by the time you get back.
