I'm Speaking at Ignite Lincoln

Ok folks. I'm one of 16 people speaking on 8/29, from 7:30-9:30, at Ignite Lincoln. We each have 5 minutes and 20 slides to make you laugh, cry, or get angry. I chose the latter. My topic will be "Re-Prairie Lincoln."

All proceeds benefit a local nonprofit, so get your ticket here.

I've been a bit nervous already -- the largest group I've talked to is about 100, twice, but this could be hundreds, even a thousand. Will I ignite a flame in you, or perform spontaneous combustion on stage when the spotlight hits me? Come find out! It'll be a blast. (oh, stop the puns.)

Sounds like the short times for a great conference I attended once...got more out of that than most others I've attended. Like a TED Husker? A professor getting nervous talking in front of groups? Ha, but you're not the first I've heard is that way!

Will there be a recording of your presentation for us who don't live in your state?

Groups are fine -- masses of people, eh! :) I hope it'll be online, eventually. Still, it won't be great quality I'm sure.
