Ignite columbus - ready to launch - Friday 6/19/08

(Ben's note: Click here to register -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.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. AND NOW THERE IS AN IGNITE COMMUNITY IN COLUMBUS, OHIO!)Original post here by Wyliemac

Well, a day away and it looks like things are jelling to make for another great Ignite Columbus.

Speakers? Check.

Sponsors? Check. Sandbox Columbus and ELEVATE thinking are brining in food from Z Pizza. Avitae Energy Water, which is a sponsor of PodCamp Ohio will be providing their caffinated water.

After Party? Check. We’ll be heading to Park Street Patio after Ignite. Park Street has generously provided us two cabanas from 9 - 10 pm, beer and pizza (limited quatity). You’ll definitely want to come and continue the conversation and talk about the talks.

Audience? Check. Thanks to those who have registered. And to those that haven’t yet, what are you waiting for. Look at all the stuff we’re providing. And the ticket is free.

We say we’ll open the doors at 6 PM. But make sure to come early so you can mingle and meet people. Also, remember the 315 construction. I have no idea what it’s like, so you’ll definitely want to account for plan for the delay.

Detailed driving and parking instructions can be found on the PodCamp Ohio site.

See everyone tomorrow.
