When Your Dream Comes True You Still Have to Pay the Bill


Jack Blasco is an environmental consultant who was born in New York City and lives in Graton, California. He likes issues that are nuanced and ambiguous so you never know if he is giving you the right answer or just making it up as he goes. 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: http://igniteshow.com
