Forest Gibson gave a great Ignite talk on making viral videos. However the video of his talk got very little views… isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
Forest has been involved in some great viral videos:
We’re NASA and We Know It 2.8 M views
Surface vs iPad Leaked TV Ad #SurfaceVSiPad 2.3 M views
Cool Things to Find (Parody of “Dumb Ways to Die”) 5.8M views
So what happened? although the video of his talk was posted shortly after Ignite it remained unlisted for 4 years, so no one could see it! On behalf of Ignite Seattle: I am sorry Forest.
Ignite is a 100% volunteer organization and sometimes things happen or in this case don’t happen. If you want to make Ignite better we have small jobs, big jobs, easy jobs, and hard jobs waiting for you, sign up to lend a hand.
Now without any further ado watch and share Forest’s video.
Sarah Novotny‘s amazing Ignite Seattle talk on her identity crisis is a wake-up call to people on the treadmill of life making decision based on society’s expectations of who they are. Sarah reminds you that you are not your wallet, you are not your shape, and you are not your accomplishments. Then who are you? Watch Sarah’s talk to hear her story and to help discover yourself.
We were reminded of Sarah’s openness in her Ignite talk, when we saw her rocking the Google Cloud Next ’17 – Day 3 Keynote last week talking about Open Source innovations. Great job Sarah!
And you can watch Sarah’s first Ignite talk here: Living the OG (Original Geek) Lifestyle It even includes the why behind this crazy thing we know and love… Ignite Seattle.
Amanda Saab gave her fantastic Ignite Seattle talk, I am Your Muslim Neighbor, almost a year ago. She touches on the wonderful accomplishments of American Muslim Women, how the Hijab is her feminist statement, how she won a MasterChef apron, and how food can bring people together.
Check out Amanda’s post Dinner with your Muslim Neighbor for a delicious way to make connections.
Hillel Cooperman has given many fantastic Ignite talks. Thank you Hillel!
This one is extra special because along with giving an entertaining talk he gives parents, including YOU, permission to be shitty.
Watch, laugh and relax as Hillel gives you permission, examples, and reasons why you should be a shitty parent.
