Since there is limited space at the venue, you must RSVP on this page to have an opportunity to get into the event; but admission is on a first-come/first-served basis (to account for RSVPs who end up not making it; we don't want to waste spaces). By RSVP'ing you will also be entered for a chance to win $300 worth of O'Reilly books of your choice. You must be present to win. There will likely be other items like tee-shirts and other promo items for those who alert us ahead that they plan to attend.  If you plan to attend, and do not RSVP you will be put in the 'wait-list' queue.

From 5:30 the lines to get in will begin to so we can facilitate entry into the building.  Once the doors are opened for all, a check-in process will begin so please bring photo ID for the building Security personell.  Once you are in, you are free to mingle and talk tech with your fellow FOOs, alpha geeks, and techies from the greater Boston area. After the mingling and social stuff we'll move on to the select keynote. Then, onto the lightning talks.

More about Global Ignite Week:

Ignite goes global! From March 1-5, 2010, 75+ Ignites will take place in cities around the world. Upwards of 10,000 entrepreneurs, technologists, DIYers, creative professionals, and enthusiastic knowledge-seekers will gather in local pubs, theaters, and other convivial venues for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: "Enlighten us, but make it quick."

In talks that are exactly five minutes long, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.

Global Ignite Week is both an in-person and online phenomenon. Local Ignites will stream live video during the event, and those videos will be archived on the new Ignite video site that is being launched in conjunction with the event. At least 500 five-minute session videos will be available on the new site when it debuts.
