Those are the first five topics selected for the next Ignite (2/13). I’ve been busy going through the submissions, but I would like to announce the first five speakers: for the Ask Later talks:

  1. Marc Hedlund (Wesabe) – “Five Ways to Actually Provide Privacy in a Web Application.”
  2. Avi Geiger - “Power Consumption of Home Computers and Incandescent Lightbulbs” (Brady’s note – trust me this is going to be an eye-opening talk)
  3. Elisabeth Freeman (Author in the Head First Series, Works at Disney Internet Group) -The Science Behind the Head First Books: or how to write a technical book that doesn’t put your readers to sleep
  4. Ellie Romero (R.E.Load Bags) – “How R.E.Load Makes Their Bags”
  5. Lee Lefever (The World Is Not Flat) – Adventures from a Year of Multimedia Travel Blogging: A few inspiring stories from a year of travel blogging across 29 countries that produced 500+ blog posts, 24 original videos and 14,000 photos.

The topics span tech, DIY, life hacks and (in future, to-be-accepted talks) entrepreneurship. More speakers will be announced in the coming days.

Wanna submit a talk? The final speakers won’t be selected until the submission deadline of 2/7 — next Wednesday. Take a look at the guidelines.

Ignite Seattle is a geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking). The next one will be held upstairs at the CHAC on Tuesday, February 13th. The Make Contest will begin at 6:30; the Ask Later talks will begin at 8:30. Admission is free.
