UpScale Talks at SCALE 8x
SCALE is trying something new this year! We will be hosting "UpSCALE" talks on Friday night. These are SCALE's version of the O'Reilly Media "Ignite" talks. An Ignite talk is a style of presentation in which participants are given five minutes to speak on a subject, accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, and slides are automatically advanced.
If you thrive on the pressure and excitement of a fast-paced presentation and have an exciting idea that you can share with the SCALE audience in 5 minutes or less then an UpSCALE talk may be perfect for you!
For those interested in one of the few UpSCALE talking slots, please send an email with the subject of "UpSCALE Talk" with a brief description of your talk idea to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is February 1st, 2010 at midnight.
