NOTE: We have NO AFFILIATION with the LA-based Christian group called Ignite-LA, nor any websites (that apparently use flash) associated with them. Look for updates here or on twitter or Facebook or blogs.
Please let us know if you are unable to attend so that others can get in. Please arrive on-time to guarantee entry as we have already reached capacity.
If you do not have a ticket: perhaps those in the community will tell us day-of or give you theirs if they cannot attend! Update: some cancellations coming in! Hang tight people... and check @ignite2LA later

Ignite Los Angeles!
5 Minutes. 20 Slides. 15 Seconds per Slide.
Speakers get only 5 minutes to give an amazing, inspiring talk. In LA, there are tons of different communities at the intersection of tech, academia, art, green/sustainability, entertainment, unique lifestyle design, entrepreneurship, digital/collaborative media, and social action that don't know each other but should. Think of Ignite as a set of trailers for exciting projects people are doing that you should know about.
At other Ignites, talks have included:
- Cyborg Anthropology
- The Secret Underground World of Lego
- How to Buy a Car
- Hacking Chocolate
Previous Ignite/LA talks can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/user/iGNiTelosangeles#p/u
- The Making of the Ok Go Rube Goldberg machine (over 42,000 views so far on our global Ignite YouTube channel)
