O’Reilly Media Launches Video Portal in Conjunction with Global Ignite Week

February 24, 2010

The new site showcases hundreds of 5-minute videos from Ignite events worldwide

Sebastopol, CA—Humans really like to congregate. Even as we increasingly live—and share—our lives online, we seek out opportunities to meet, talk, and get recharged by the energy of a crowd. From March 1-5, 2010, roughly 10,000 people will congregate at more than 60 Ignites on six continents, as the first Global Ignite Week rolls across the planet. They’ll gather in local venues, grab a cold beverage, and watch a series of 5-minute talks from geeks, entrepreneurs, creative professionals, farmers, educators—people in their community who rise to the challenge of the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”

Only 1 Week to go until Ignite Princeton

February 24, 2010

The planning for the inaugural Ignite event in Princeton is well and truly underway.

The Nassau Inn is hosting our first event; this is very fitting given that it is in the heart of Princeton.

This free event is a multi-purpose networking, information-sharing, entertainment, geek-fest. The range of speakers are a testament to the diversity of thinking in our community. And it should be fun, too.

Doors open at 7:00 pm. Don’t forget to register (did we mention it’s free!?) here: http://igniteprinceton/ and there will be light food and beverages on hand.

Looking forward to seeing you and making new connections.

Please note that Ignite is focused on sharing your burning ideas – the things that keep you up late at night. the stuff you’d do for free, even if it wasn’t your job. Your obsession. It’s *NOT* the place to be all self promotional or spammy. Presentation ideas that seem too spammy will be rejected, in favor of those that show more passion, interesting-ness, and spark. So be sparky, be irreverent, be fired-up, but please do not be spammy!
