The (un)Wired Future of Bicycles

The Mobile Social is back in Portland for WebVisions and this time we’re bringing Ignite-style presentations about the (un)Wired Future of Bicycles with us.


Ignite Bikes

Logo-ignite.png Webvisions has an exhibit hall with a big stage and at 1:15 PDT on May 20th, we’ll start 20 talks about the future of bicycles. Submit your talk to us now. We’re looking for big ideas about integrating wireless mobile technology and bikes. Changing the world with bikes too.

For some background:

Ignite is a style of presentation where participants are given five minutes to speak on a subject accompanied by 20 slides. Each slide is displayed for 15 seconds, and slides are automatically advanced. The first Ignite was held in 2006 in Seattle, Washington, and was sponsored by O’Reilly Media and MAKE magazine.

I presented during Ignite @ Gnomedex and dug the format so much we’ve been working on bringing it to our events ever since. Discussed the ideas with Brady Forrest, a founder of Ignite, and he was all, “Cool. Do it.”

But Wait There’s More Bikes

wv_160_whiteblue.gif We got so much going on we don’t want to hit you all at once with it, but stay tuned for more posts about our Hugga Booth, Gear, event Deals, prizes, and schwag during Webvisions.

Yes we’ll ride around Portland too, but with a new twist, a remix of our Moso.

For now, submit your talk. We want to hear it.
