T Minus 5 Talks

One of the most exciting parts of SpaceUp is T minus 5, a series of short talks in the Ignite format. Each speaker gets 5 minutes to talk, with 20 slides that rotate automatically every 15 seconds. It’s a fun format that’s more like karaoke than giving a presentation; it’s tough to keep up with your slides, but the friendly crowd cheers you on.

The T minus 5 talks are usually webcast live on Spacevidcast and archived for later viewing.

For examples of T minus 5 and other Ignite format talks, see Andy Cochrane’s amazing talk Space Is Boring at the last SpaceUp San Diego, or Scott Berkun’s talk about how to give an Ignite talk.
