Get Ready for Ignite DC 4 – June 16

We are just 15 days away from Ignite DC 4 on Thursday, June 16. I had the great fortune of being the closing speaker for Ignite DC 3 last winter. The above video is my speech on Using Your Skills to Change the World, and you can find my slides here.

For those of you not familiar, the Ignite series has a unique format: “Five minutes, 20 slides. What would you say?” At every Ignite, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers, and personalities take the stage to answer this challenge. It’s really awesome, and I look forward to this coming Ignite DC 4.

Here are the current speakers:

You can RSVP here. See you there!


  • Geoff, Thanks for sharing this video with us. I’m going to come back and re-watch it whenever I need a little reminder about the American Dream and the real pursuit of happiness.

  • Dude.

    Love the video.

    Also… I note that you say there are 16 speakers but only 15 are listed in your post.

    (No worries… just thought it amusing in a “just my luck” sort of way.)
