Five Minutes, Twenty Slides: What Would YOU Say?
Ignite Austin brought together an inspiring and unexpected blend of thinkers from business, art, technology, government and academia. All with ideas. And all willing to share them. The goal was to spark new conversations and collaborations across cultures and disciplines. See the website by clicking here. The first Ignite Austin was held on Wednesday, January 14, 2010 at the Phoenix lounge in downtown Austin. The joint was packed. It was a great show! Here are just a few of the great pictures I caught of the evening.
