The videos from Ignite Boise 2 (held at the Egyptian Theater on July 16, 2009) are up on a YouTube Channel. They are an interesting collection of 16 public speeches on topics ranging from the small to the large (both literally and figuratively).
The Ignite format calls for a five-minute presentation with exactly 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. Wyatt Werner explains it in this video. In a previous post I likened Ignite to being drafted into a PowerPoint Marines Marching Band. The fixed time per slide is a serious constraint that these presenters were able to overcome, sometimes brilliantly. They manage to make it look easy, but it is really difficult.
