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.
Your Couch Is a Door
As he is frequently credited for doing, Benjamin Franklin gave words by which I can thrive: "Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man." I have faults that I labor to recognize and overcome. I have strengths that I seek to discover and share. I have dreams that I will nurture and realize. As much as I want to push my boundaries with culinary creations, I will always enjoy peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with milk. I can't really enjoy myself at a dinner party if the dirty plates aren't at least being soaked in the sink. I'll probably do it for you. I rarely panic and I always pack a towel. When I meet you, I'll probably like you.
Mention of www.couchsurfing.org spurs reaction that ranges from appreciative nods to accusations of lunacy. In five minutes, I will tip the scales toward the former and assuage the latter. Couchsurfing is whatever a couchsurfer makes of it, and I believe those who value community can recognize couchsurfing as a door to the world.
