Ignite Orlando

If you had five minutes to talk to Orlando on stage, what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. Combine this with an onsite contest where contestants are grouped together to make things and you have Ignite Orlando.

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. Since then 100s of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Orlando, Seattle, Portland, Paris, and NYC.

Film: monochrom's Kiki and Bubu: RATED R US

Florida Premiere!

Our favorite sock puppets Kiki and Bubu have some feelings, so they sign up for an online dating site. When the People of China want to become their friend, they are excited. However, sending the People of China a video of themselves proves to be difficult: Their content gets flagged as inappropriate and taken down from YouTube. On the long quest for knowledge which follows, Kiki and Bubu learn all about Internet censorship.  And love.

Join us for the Florida premiere of Kiki and Bubu's longest (50 minutes!) and most epic adventure! monochrom's Johannes Grenzfurthner will present the film and share some behind-the-scenes knowledge. Yada, yada!

TEDxOrlandoSalon meets monthly on second Thursdays at Taste, a casual restaurant in the College Park neighborhood. A typical meeting draws between 15 and 50 smart, interesting, engaged people. Some will be regulars and some will be newcomers. Some choose to eat during the event, others choose not to. Two TEDTalk videos are shown, each followed by a discussion break. The event program is determined by vote, and discussions are open-ended.

TEDxOrlando is an annual one-day conference now in it's third year, to be held next in 2012. Please stay tuned for details.

Show and Tell

Jan 03 2012 6:25p - 8:25p

Show and Tell, for adults! Show us a project you've been working on, your favorite book, your wallet, your new haircut, an abstract idea you think we should all know about, a love letter, a scarf, a new gadget, or tell a great story from another creative community. Let us get inside the story, or see behind the process, introduce us to something new and amazing.

This will be our seventh Show and Tell - we have had some really amazing presenters in the first few months, and I am optimistic about the possibilities for this event in the future. Last month was hosted by Mark Baratelli of TheDailyCIty.com, and it was an awesome time.

Show and Tell was proud to be featured in the Orlando Sentinel's Calendar last month:

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends. Lazy Moon is a local hot spot (if you live in East Orlando) with awesome pizza, great deals, craft beers and a "punk as f**k" vibe. If you're a UCF student you get a discount for skipping class.
