Ignite Sofia invites presentation proposals for Global Ignite Week 2011.
On the 8th of February Ignite Sofia will join Global Ignite week(7-11 February 2011). In over 50 cities around the world, more than 10.000 entrepreneurs, technologists, DIYers, creative professionals, and enthusiastic knowledge-seekers will gather for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”
In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.
Ignite Sofia is looking for presentation proposals. To participate send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us the topic of your presentation and a little bit about yourself.
Deadline for submissions is January 28 2011.
If you would like to make a presentation, but are still looking for topics, maybe some of these previous presentations from Ignite events around the world can help you:
– Fighting Dirty in Scrabble
– Secret Underground World of Lego
– I Learned From Being @the_swine_flu http

Ignite is a fast-paced geek event started in the US by Brady Forrest, Technology Evangelist for publishing house O’Reilly Media, and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, formerly of MAKE Magazine. Speakers are given 20 slides, each shown for 15 seconds, giving each speaker 5 minutes of fame. Ignite was partially inspired by Pecha Kucha Nights. The first Ignite took place in Seattle in 2006, and since then the event has become an international phenomenon, with regular gatherings in over 100 cities worldwide, including Helsinki (Finland), Paris (France), New York (US) and now also Sofia.
Ignite Sofia is organised by Simeon Ianchev (robotev.com), Albena Baeva (runabout.eu) and Rene Beekman.
