What is Ignite Seattle: in 60 seconds

The live experience of attending our events is a special thing. We know that people who come, and even speakers, can have a hard time explaining what Ignite Seattle is. It’s more than presentations. It’s more than storytelling and community. It’s more than a fun night. It’s…. MANY GOOD THINGS.

To help solve the problem, we’ve made a short video that tells the story. We hope you like it enough to share it! Kudos to Bryan Zug for putting this together.

 

Encourage a friend to submit a talk idea (due April 14)

Do you know that 78.9% of people who submit a Ignite Seattle talk are encouraged to do so by a friend? Well if so please share your data because that is a just an estimate based on what we hear 🙂 Seriously, encouragement is sooo critical for many people to tell their story about their passion, a hard lesson, an insight or idea that is important for others to hear.

So…
We encourage you to encourage a friend to submit a talk idea

And…
We encourage YOU to submit a talk idea… that idea floating around in your head wants to be told and we know you are the best person to tell it.
You will be awesome!
The crowd will cheer!
You will be so glad you did it!
We promise.

The next Ignite Seattle is Thursday, May 18th at Town Hall and the talk submission deadline is Friday, April 14th at midnight.
Don’t delay encourage and submit a talk idea today 🙂

Thursday Throwback: How to Get 5 Million People to Read Your Website (2010)

Matthew Inman gave an Ignite Seattle talk when his famous web comic (www.theoatmeal.com) was just a year old and already getting 5 Million unique users a month. Woah.

He explains how you can get millions of people to read your website, if that isn’t your jam his talk is still good for lots of laughs with a trip through memory lane of his early work. He will also explain why when he dies he wants to come back as a pig.

Enlighten us, but make it quick!
