300 Seconds of Fame (300SoF) is a combination/alteration of PS:One's separate [http://pumpingstationone.org/2009/11/lightning-talks-at-pumping-station-one/ lightning talks] and [http://pumpingstationone.org/2009/11/pechakucha-night-at-psone/ Pecha Kucha night], taking in elements from [https://www.noisebridge.net/wiki/Five_Minutes_of_Fame Noisebridge's Five Minutes of Fame], which in turn is an adaptation of CCC's Lightning Talks. The idea is that we hold about an hour's worth of 5 minute open mic slots. You can run shorter, but not longer, than five minutes.

Latest revision as of 11:32, 11 April 2018


2nd Tuesdays of each month at PS:One, you! yes YOU! get to hear your fellow members, geeks, and other associated community-minded people present to whoever wants to show up, but only for 300 seconds apiece.

You've got five minutes. Use it wisely.


Contents

What is it?

300 Seconds of Fame (300SoF) is a combination/alteration of PS:One's separate lightning talks and Pecha Kucha night, taking in elements from Noisebridge's Five Minutes of Fame, which in turn is an adaptation of CCC's Lightning Talks. The idea is that we hold about an hour's worth of 5 minute open mic slots. You can run shorter, but not longer, than five minutes.

Within those parameters, what is it? Glad you asked.

It can be a presentation, a musical number, a demonstration, a debate, a run-through of a proof of concept, performance art, live circuit bending, etc, etc, ad nauseum. Will it fit into five minutes, be feasible for the space, and be appreciated by an audience? Go for it.

When and Where does it happen?

Second Tuesday of every month after the 8pm meeting at PS:One.

Why are we doing this?

  • Easy way to find out what's going on at PS:One -- no need to sit through long lectures.
  • Some people are working on projects that are not ready for a full 30 minute or hour long talk, but they want to get their ideas out. Maybe they need help; maybe they want to propose an idea to the PS:One community.
  • Some people are shy about public speaking and want to practice without giving an "official" conference talk, which can be daunting. This is a great way to try it out in a community of peers.
  • These days, many of us are becoming entrepreneurs to one extent or another. If you're trying to sell your idea to someone, you need to be able to explain it in five minutes or less.
  • "The Law of Fives"

How can I participate?

Easy - sign up to give a talk! Contact Justin (`justin on irc OR justin (at) conroy dot in) or add your talk to the "Next" section below.

Include your name (or handle) and talk title, as well as whether or not you'll need projector access.

How can I attend?

Just show up!
