LSC is organizing Ignite Talks for the TIG conference this year. Anyone looking for tips on Ignite talks should check out Scott Berkun - "Why and How to Give an Ignite Talk" youtu.be/rRa1IPkBFbg

Announcement:

If you had six minutes and 20 slides to share an idea, best practice, lesson learned (remember we learn from our failures as well as our successes), or to show off a TIG project, what would you talk about? You have five days left to decide and get your TIG Conference IGNITE session proposal submitted!

Go to http://bit.ly/TIG2013Ignite to submit your Ignite proposal. Proposals are due by November 30, 2012.

What's an Ignite Session?

Ignite was created as a way for geeks to share their ideas with each other quickly, in a fun atmosphere. Started in Seattle in 2006, Ignite sessions now regularly occur in dozens of cities worldwide. If you're familiar with Ignite, you know it's a great way to show off your work. If you're not, Ignite is a style of presentation:

  • Participants will have six minutes to speak about a project, idea, or pretty much anything on your mind (preferably related to the use of technology or legal aid) accompanied by 20 slides.
  • Each slide is displayed for 20 seconds.
  • Slides are automatically advanced.
  • It's over before you know it!

If you're not familiar with an Ignite session, go to http://igniteshow.com for more information and to view some Ignite session videos. 

Remember, go to http://bit.ly/TIG2013Ignite to submit your proposal!  The TIG Ignite Session will be held during a plenary on Thursday, January 17, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. at the 2013 TIG Conference in Jacksonville, FL.
