Skeptical, not Cynical: Why I flushed woo down the loo.


Kernan Coleman is Creative Director for Ranch7 Creative in Santa Rosa. When not glued to his computer at work, he is glued to his computer at home. What is Ignite? It’s a fun, high-energy evening of a dozen or so “speed presentations” given by people like you to their hometown crowd. Ignite presenters get 5 minutes to talk about whatever lights them up, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds–whether they’re ready or not. It has a geek culture bent, though folks have talked about everything from “The Best Way to Buy a Car” to “Hacking Chocolate” to “19th Century Pneumatic Tubes.” For more information about Ignite and how to start an event in your community, see:
