Third Batch of Ignite Talks

More talk, more talks, more talks!

  1. Mark Novak (Microsoft University of Washington) – Security Guarantees
  2. The topic is “security guarantees” – a way for the uninitiated to dissect security of systems (including software systems) and demand more secure solutions. I will use my 5 minutes to illustrate the concept by breaking security of OpenID – twice! – using nothing but common sense and a little bit of common knowledge.

  3. Maegan Ashworth (University of Washington Dept of Epidemiology Seattle Biomedical Research Institute) – No, Not Skin: An Introduction to Epidemiology
  4. An introduction to the basic study designs, modeling approaches and technologies used in epidemiology, illustrated with infectious and noninfectious diseases of interest.

  5. Keith Schorsch (PeerWisdom ex-Amazon) – Making Sweet Lemonade
  6. How do find the idea that you are passionate about? How do you integrate your life and work experiences, both good and bad? I’ll share how my experiences at Amazon, McCaw, and with some personal health issues inspired the idea for our new venture, PeerWisdom, a social network for health.

Health was a big theme this time. It’s something I am researching for O’Reilly and then I received three health submissions. Good stuff.

Ignite Seattle is a geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking). The THIRD one will be held upstairs at the CHAC on Thursday, April 5th. The Make Contest will begin at 6:30; the Ask Later talks will begin at 8:30. Videos and photos from the previous Ignite are available. Admission is free.
