Last Chance: Submit a Talk for SF Ignite Expo

web 2.0 expo logo
Today’s your last chance to submit a talk to the Web 2.0 Expo Ignite Event that we’re holding on Tuesday, April 22nd at the DNA Lounge in SOMA. Submit a talk.

We are going to have about 16 Ignite talks. These talks will each be 5 minutes long with 20 slides and only 15 seconds a slide. Anyone who is attending Expo or Web2Open is welcome to speak.

Topics should fall in the realm of web 2.0 technology, entrepreneurship, life hacks, or something else that you think a room full of internet junkies will appreciate. Stories and lessons work better than product demos. If you’re still not sure what to talk about I’ve added a list of the accepted talks below; I’ve embedded an excellent talk from Monica Guzman of Seattle’s Big Blog on News Commenting after the jump.

There are still many slots to be filled. Talks will be selected by Monday the 14h; slides will be due that Friday. Fill out this form to throw your hat in the ring. Trust me it’s fun! RSVP.
