What is Ignite?

If you had five minutes 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. Hosted by conference co-chair Brady Forrest, this evening event takes place Monday, September 27 to kickoff Web 2.0 Expo New York.  See you there!
