About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

6 months in 901 words, a poem.

Biography
Best thing I ever did was marry a girl I met while tutoring her in math up in Bellingham, WA. Since college, we've enjoyed traveling and new experiences, like moving to Bend in 1996 for a job. In 2003 we quit our jobs and took a real whinger of a trip. Drove to Alaska, flew to Europe, traveled through the interior of Mexico. We were gone for a year and a half, and the highlight was 6 months spent in SE Asia. The extreme differences in culture blew apart our view of 'conventional wisdom' and reinforced our core beliefs about human kind. It was epic. Upon our return to Bend in 2004, I got my job back, we've got 2 kids and a large mortgage. Yes, it's different, but don't worry! We still find time to test our core beliefs and concerns about human kind. Every day.

Description
Aural condensation of 6 months in SE Asia. Verbal transference of learning through experience. Mental binoculars.
