What is an Ignite? It is a small conference built around 5 minute presentations that include 20 slides each (allowing for 15 seconds / slide).
The presentations must be about *how* to do something cool. For example, they cannot be about how great your startup is, but rather about something novel that you learned while creating your startup.
Note - the location has changed - Goose Island decided it would be a good idea to double-book the venue stating at 9pm. We didn't want to cut the event short so we scrambled for a new location. The new location is significantly better for the following reasons:
1. closer to the city
2. won't double-book us
3. significantly better A/V capabilities
