Global Ignite Week: Starts Monday with 65 Cities, 6 Continents, 500 Speakers over 5 Days - O'Reilly Radar

From Brady Forrest:

From March 1-5 there will be ~65 Ignite events happening around the worldIgnite is an opportunity for geeks to share their passions and ideas with local peers. Each speaker gets 20 slides that each auto-advance after 15 seconds for a total of just 5 minutes. The result is bite-size chunks of information that inform the crowd on new topics. There are lots of Ignite videos online.
Ignite has spread with very little prompting on our part. Almost all of the ~65 cities participating next week were self-started and community organized. As Tim said, “Self-organization enables amazing scale”. Global Ignite Week is definitely and example of that happening. Anyone can throw an ignite — they just need a laptop, a stage, ideas and a community. To be successful they will also need the backing of that community and in most cases the community has come together to make the event happen.

See full list of Ignite events after the jump. If you are local to NC, check out Ignite Raleigh on Wednesday March 3rd.
