Ignite is coming back to San Francisco. On April First, the second night of the Web 2.0 Expo, I’ll be hosting an Ignite at the Mezzanine (just four short blocks away from Moscone). As with all Ignites each speaker will only get 20 slides that each auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of five minutes. Folks with a Web 2.0 Expo Badge will get priority entrance, but we’ll open the doors to everyone before the talks start. Ignite is free.

The schedule for the evening will be:

7:30 – Doors Open; Entry is for anyone with Conference or Expo Plus Pass holders

8:15 – Entry for Anyone

8:30 – First Set of Speakers

  • Danny O’Brien (EFF) Don’t Push Me Cos I’m Close To The Edge
  • Raven Hanna (MadeWithMolecules)- Science of Love
  • Thor Muller (GetSatisfaction) – We’re all Collapsitarians Now!
  • Veronica Belmont(Tekzilla) – Make Your Business a Meme
  • Michael Galpert(Aviary) – Images on the internets may appear realer than they are
  • Aaron Rowe(Wired Science) – SARS, Drugs, and Biosensors
  • Greg Elin(Sunlight Foundation) – Mr Hacker Goes to Washington

9:15 – Break

9:45 – Second Set of Speakers

I hope to see you there. You can RSVP on Facebook or Upcoming.

    Hi Brady – the one in Australia is actually in Melbourne, not Sydney – but considering the Web Directions crew are based in Sydney, I’d expect one to happen there soon enough :)
