Full Speaker List and Tickets for Seattle Ignite 28

Our 28th Ignite event is Thursday, September 17th 7pm/8pm at Town Hall Seattle. Tickets $5 at the door or in advance (we frequently sell out – buy tickets early. Or NOW. Really).

Doors open at 7pm, with a cash bar and a fun social interactive game-like-thing (you don’t have to play, and since there is a bar you can stand and drink and make fun of the people who do, but we suspect you’re more likely to play than you think). Talks start at 8pm, with an nicely sized intermission for you to do various acts of biology and sociology, including getting more drinks.

We received more than 50 submissions. Since we are restricted by the laws of physics we can only have 16 speakers in one event (If you have supernatural powers please volunteer: we can use you).

Here is the resplendent list of wondrous presenters:
