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.

My dog is sometimes called a Turkish Mountain Dog and sometimes an Afghan Fighting Dog(but he is too sweet to fight). This presentation would be his story. On my military tour to Afghanistan in 2002 this adorable little guy got dropped off at the remote location safe house that I was sharing at 9000 ft in the Hindu Kush with 20 other american soldiers. While I had been opposed to getting a dog, as soon as we had him I started working on my plan to get him out of that country. Mojo traveled by a route that is no longer possible, and at the blessing of the Afghan government. By the time I made it back to the U.S. he had tripled in size. He helped me through the adjustment back to the U.S. and has been an amazing friend. This past fall, I was once again deployed, and while deployed, was notified that Mojo had cancer. Because I could not face losing the dog I saved from Afghanistan while I was serving in Iraq, I went to some intense measures to get him treated. So far, he is doing OK. I think Mojo has the coolest story and I would love to have the opportunity to tell it. He is the coolest dog in America!
