Talk Show



Ignite, "a fast-paced geek event," is coming to Memphis.

Started by Brady Forrest, Technology Evangelist for O'Reilly Media, and Bre Pettis of, formerly of MAKE Magazine, Ignite is a collection of short talks given by chosen applicants.

Using five minutes and 20 slides, each one will get to talk about, well, whatever they want. But only for five minutes.

From the event's application form:

"What will you teach, show, share, or explain? Make it exciting! Any topic is fair game, as long as it’s PG-13 and isn’t a sales pitch."

Deadlines for submission is Friday, October 1st, and Ignite Night Memphis is Tuesday, October 12th, at Playhouse on the Square. Tickets can be purchased here.
