Ignite is coming back to San Francisco. On April First, the second night of the Web 2.0 Expo, I'll be hosting an Ignite at the Mezzanine (just four short blocks away from Moscone). As with all Ignites each speaker will only get 20 slides that each auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of five minutes. Folks with a Web 2.0 Expo Badge will get priority entrance, but we'll open the doors to everyone before the talks start. Ignite is free.

The schedule for the evening will be:

7:30 - Doors Open; Entry is for anyone with Conference or Expo Plus Pass holders
