What Drives You?

It’s the fifth anniversary of Triangle Tweetup - approximately - so we decided to throw a different kind of Tweetup. We heart the Triangle tech community. You love the Triangle tech community. Everyone loves the tech talks and demos at Bronto each spring. We’re boiling down the idea. A striped down Ignite. A mini Ignite if you will. Our good friends at Bronto are going to host it on the evening of May 10. Mark your calendar. Here’s what we’re doing. 5 speakers only. The Theme is Drive. What drives you crazy? Is big data driving all tech innovation or is all tech innovation driven by big data? Are you driven by lust or ego or noble purpose? Where did you drive on your last great road trip? Which cooking aromas drive your taste buds? Google Drive vs Dropbox vs Skydrive vs iCloud vs SmartCloud? What vehicles should we drive in 5 years or 50 years? Are zombies driven by hunger or instinct? What is your take? When did you discover what drives you? Tell us a five minute story about your drive. Enlighten us but make it quick.
