Talk about creating community. At every Ignite Baltimore, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers, and personalities take the stage to answer this challenge: Five minutes, 20 slides. What would you say? The goal is to spark new conversations and collaborations across cultures and disciplines.
From the City Paper:
"Soon after 7 p.m., Mike Subelsky took the stage. The bearded, ex-Navy officer and programmer who lives in Charles Village, explained the rules for the night: 16 artists, programmers, curators, and writers would give 5-minute PowerPoint presentations on a subject he or she cared about, from tree canopies to 13th-century manuscripts. The 20 slides in their presentation would automatically advance every 15 seconds, and there would be no break between presentations, turning the already difficult prospect of public speaking into a reality show-style contest for the handful of speakers who faced technical difficulties and hecklers."

Please also join us for pizza afterwards with the skeptic group that attends each year. We will be meeting in the lobby after the event ends and we usually go around the corn to Two Boots http://www.twoboots.com/ and split a pie or two. *This is a vegan friendly pizza place for those who are veg.* We hope to see you there!
