Hamburg on fire

Just a short hint. Tonight will be the first Ingite in Hamburg.

Ingite is an event where people come together, share their ideas in form of short presentations and get “ignited” or “enlighted” by others.

In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.

Ignite goes global—from March 1-5, 2010, 50+ Ignites will take place in cities around the world. Upwards of 10,000 entrepreneurs, technologists, DIYers, creative professionals, and enthusiastic knowledge-seekers will gather in local pubs, theaters, and other convivial venues for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” (via ignite.oreilly.com)

You can attend the event via live stream (presentations start at 8 pm). And later you can find the presentations on youtube.
