ABOUT IGNITE SEATTLE

Enlighten Us, But Make It Quick

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 of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. Besides Seattle, there are thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, Boulder, Baltimore, NYC and lot more. Hundreds of people turn out for our Seattle Ignites.

Our friend Tom Music has passed away

Tom Music – a great human being and a dear friend of Ignite Seattle – passed away last night.

Tom went into the hospital about a month ago. It looked like things had turned around, but then they took a turn for the worse.

Friends will be gathering this Friday for a vaguely Irish-style wake in Tom’s honor. Jana, Tom’s wife, has details on that over here. She’ll also be posting details there about the pending memorial service for Tom when they firm up.

Again, here’s Tom delivering one of the best Ignite talks we’ve ever hosted.
