I do apologize, I should have put the customary [OT] in front of my
subject line. I thought that the Trilug community would be interested
in hearing new and exciting ideas as offered by the Ignite event.
Topics such as "Playing Nice In the Sandbox: The Triangle, Silicon
Valley, Bombay and Beijing" or "Fuzzy quantum pop"
appear to have a technical or scientific bent. The presenters are
typically very professional & entertaining and in this high-tech area
of RDU, are very much "plugged-in" to the tech-world. The A-hole one
is apparently designed to get the shock effect & attention as it
appeared that it has.
I should have added the additional information line such as the wiki
article about Ignite (in general):
Thank you for your understanding.
