evo'12 is THIS WEEK

Have you noticed the banner up there? Right under my blog header? If not, please notice it . . . NOW. Or, you know, just look here:

I'm speaking Evo 12

Yes, that's right. I will be at evo conference in Park City again this year. This year, as in the last two years, I will be a volunteer at evo, but this year? I'M ALSO A SPEAKER. Yiiiiiiiiiiiiikes.

I'll be speaking as part of the Opening Night Keynote as an Ignite speaker. Have you heard of Ignite? Their slogan: enlighten us, but make it quick. My talk will be five minutes long and include a powerpoint presentation of twenty slides which automatically advance every fifteen seconds. I've been practicing, and I'm amazed at how something can simultaneously move so quickly and feel like it will never end. That being said, I'm beyond honored at this opportunity and look forward to it, as well as to seeing the other Ignite presentations, with much excitement.

I'm, of course, also looking forward to being a volunteer, the stellar instruction, fun activities, connecting with the sponsors, and just being in Park City. Will you be there? If so, or if not, will you send some good thoughts my way on Thursday evening?

I'm going to treat your ignite presentation like you're a southern baptist preacher... I'm going to yell, "Aaaaaamen..." over and over and at the very end, I'm going to yell, "Can I get a witnessssss?"

I'm a newbie, so I haven't heard the 5 min Ignite yet, but I love the title and can't wait to catch the fire!
