Ignite Orlando same thing as Pecha Kucha

DSC03981

Orlando isn't getting Pecha Kucha, but something very similar...

Ignite Orlando is having an open-invite event planning meeting December 18, 2008 at 6:30pm at CoLab, hosted by Dan Kinchen. Please RSVP. For more info on the meeting, go here.
What is Ignite Orlando? If you had five minutes to talk to Orlando on stage, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. Combine this with an onsite contest where contestants are grouped together to make things and you have Ignite Orlando.

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Orlando, Seattle, Portland, Paris, and NYC.
If you would like to get involved or just show your support, please come by and lend a moment of your time. The planning meeting will hit on the following topics:
- What is Ignite Orlando

- The need for a Videographer
