It is time for you to submit your Ask Later proposal to the next Ignite! What do you want to tell Seattle in 5 minutes? You get 20 slides for 15 seconds a slide and you can’t control it. If you’re unsure of how it works watch a couple of videos from last time.

To submit a talk email us at:

Please include the topic and any affiliations in your email. Submissions will be open until Wednesday, February 7th. We have room for 21 speakers. I expect there will be more than that proposed. Slides will be due by Sunday the 11th.

How will selections be made? They will be based on content (will it appeal to geeks?) and what else is in the program. There will be no repeat speakers from the first Ignite. One tip: we found that the best, most popular talks were not straight product demos, but instead focused on personal experiences that could easily be applied to other people’s own project and lives. If you’ve got a project or howto that you can explain or teach us in 5 minutes, that works too!

Looking for inspiration? Check out the previous speaker list and watch the videos from last time.

Ignite Seattle is a geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking). The next one will be held upstairs at the CHAC on Tuesday, February 13th. The Make Contest will begin at 6:30; the Ask Later talks will begin at 8:30. Videos and photos from the previous Ignite are available. Admission is free.

Note: Speakers will be chosen and announced a rolling basis, but the final speakers will not be chosen until the 7th – meaning you have a definite advantage if you submit early!
