Ignite Columbus Ignites PodCamp Ohio

14 April 2009 in Events, Ignite Columbus, News

It’s official! The night before PodCamp Ohio we will be hosting Ignite Columbus. We’re thinking of calling it Ignite Columbus presents: Ignite Ohio or some other such fun thing. The PodCamp Ohio organizing crew has been working to try to bring extra value and fun to your PodCamp experience. This special Ignite will be from 6 to 8pm on Friday June 19th, in the same space as PodCamp Ohio.

We contacted the Ignite Columbus organizers and invited them to use our space for their next event and they have accepted. This event is free and open to anyone who wishes to attend. All PodCamp Ohio attendees are welcome to join in the fun of Ignite.

Don’t know what Ignite is? Ignite is an evening of 5 minute presentations that cover a range of topics people are passionate about.  Presenters use a deck of 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds. Many who attended Ignite events come away with new information, new friends and maybe even the spark of a new idea.

Here is my favorite presentation from the most recent Ignite Columbus Event:

We are thrilled to be working with Dan Rockwell, Alvin Borromeo and the rest of the Ignite Columbus crew to bring you this fun evening of entertainment. Between Ignite and PodCamp Ohio, the weekend is sure to leave you with a lot of information and fresh ideas for enhancing your own new media and social media experience.

If you would like to present at the Ignite event, please watch their website for details on how to sign up. All presentations will need to use the Ignite template so it is important that you register to present and receive instructions. We will be posting more details here as they develop.

I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at this event and the next day at PodCamp Ohio.

  1. Mary, thanks for the post. Just a minor correction. We do not require the use of the template, just a suggestion. But yes, we will be putting up a new submission page. Stay tuned.
