Whiteboard Brainstorming For My Upcoming @IgniteHouston Talk

Whiteboard Brainstorming For My Upcoming @IgniteHouston Talk

Speaking at Ignite Houston

I'm pleased to announce I'll be speaking at the inaugural Ignite Houston event taking place at C2 Creative on February 23, 2012 at 6:30PM.  Ignite events have been held in over 100 cities worldwide, and are composed of a series of 5 minute talks, each with slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.  It's kind of like TED, but faster. You can learn more about the concept, and watch thousands of Ignite talks at the official site.

My talk is entitled "Use The Cloud To Be An Awesome Dad".  In it I will describe some creative ways to leverage the cloud to accomplish your parental tasks and be a hero to your kids.  Since I have twin daughters arriving in one month, I've been giving a lot of thought to how I'll use technology and the internet to make their lives special. My Ignite talk will cover some of what I've learned and will hopefully be useful to other parents.

If you're in Houston or the surrounding communities, I encourage you to come out and participate.  You can register for the event here.  If you live elsewhere, don't fret: all of the talks will be streamed live from the Ignite Houston site, so come join us virtually!
