Ask Later is going to be one of the main events at Ignite Seattle. This is the open mic part of the evening. Anyone who wants will get 5 minutes on stage with 20 slides, but with no control over them. The slides will rotate through at a rate of 15 seconds. Your talk can be about anything, but remember your audience. This is inspired by Pecha Kucha.
So far we have 4 speakers: Buster McLeod (AKA Erik Benson), Scott Berkun, Shelly Farnham, and Beth Goza. If you want to join them, sign up in the comments.
If you want to see an example here’s Matt Webb (author of Mind Hacks) doing a Pecha Kucha-style presentation. Matt is the speaker. The bald guy next to him is changing the slides.
Come to Ignite, a short-form, almost-unconference event. Seattle needs the occasional gathering of the geek tribe to spark new ideas and keep the mojo fresh. Be a part of it!
What we have:
The date: Thursday, December 7th- Make Seattle starts at 6:30; Main event starts at 8
A bar to call our own for the night – LowerLevel
One stage, two rooms
What you provide:
Ideas that need bouncing around
Projects you can’t put down
Musings you need to set loose
There are two spaces, so everyone will have the opportunity to speak and do their own thing. We already have Make: Club, Ask Later (5 minute talks with no interuptions), and Werewolves planned, but that’s just the beginning. Sure you can just come to lurk, but wouldn’t it be more fun to take the stage?
This event is being organized by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make:. We would love to hear your thoughts; this is a community event.
