[kwlug-disc] KWLUG Ignite night?

So Raul said that we should all consider giving Ignite talks, and
Richard gave us an entertaing example of presenting KWLUG content in
the format. Do we want to try an Ignite-style KWLUG meeting? If so
then May 2011 looks like it is open. (Hopefully the fad will not be
over by then.) 

In order to make this happen we need some brave people to pitch Ignite
talks on topics relevant to the LUG. I think that 8-10 talks will be
enough for a good meeting, although we can certainly add a few more
slots if there is interest. (Bonus: the FLOSS fund announcement and
Linux News portions of the meeting can be in Ignite format as well.) 

It might be helpful if we had one person who would be willing to
collect the presentations on a laptop that could be used throughout
the evening. 

Thoughts? Pitches?

P.S. I am looking for two 20 minute presentations for the March 2011
meeting as well, and any other offers for presentations long or short
-- in response to popular demand I am going to try mixing things up more
than we have been.
