Ignite, the worldwide network of geek events that promise to “Enlighten us, but make it quick,” is now under the aegis of Ignite Talks PBC.
Brady Forrest, who started Ignite back in 2006 with Bre Pettis, has launched this new public benefit corporation to grow and nurture Ignite, a move that makes all of us at O’Reilly very happy. It’s time for Ignite to leave the O’Reilly fold, and we’re certain it will thrive on its own.
For the full story of Ignite’s history and the new organization’s plans going forward, see Brady’s post. I hope you’re inspired to do an Ignite talk, or, if there’s no Ignite in your home town, start your own!
