Ignite Columbus 2 - This Wednesday Jan 21

I have to admit when I heard about Ignite Columbus that I had no idea what it was about but thought that it had a cool name. So what the heck is Ignite Columbus and why have closed to 100 people signed up to attend the next one this Wed. (Click here to register)

Here is what it's all about:

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.
Ignite, a community sponsored by O’Reilly, was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Seattle, Portland, Paris, and NYC.
