Two New Episodes of the Ignite Show

By Mary Rotman
March 19, 2009

The last two episodes of the Ignite Show feature talks from Ignite NYC II and Ignite Boudler, respectively. At Ignite NYC II, Andrew Schneider talked about his own DIY experimental performance devices and demonstrated some of their uses.

Amber Case is a Cyber Anthropologist and studies how tech is changing our lives. In this video, filmed at Ignite Boulder, she runs through her research on the ever-expanding population of cyborgs in just five minutes.

The Ignite Show will feature a different speaker every Tuesday for free. It's available on Ignite site and via iTunes. It is being released under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 United States License.

The format of Ignite is 20 slides that auto-advance after 15 seconds. When you are on stage giving an Ignite talk this can be quite exhilarating (sometimes terrifying). The added adrenalin really adds to the presentation and I think that will come through on the small screen.

Ignite has spread to over 20 cities in the past two years. We want to highlight speakers from around the world with the show. If your town or city has lots of geeks throw an Ignite to bring them together!
