|Other||Given the theme this year, “Performance and Participation,” it seemed a particularly good time to introduce a new format of presentation to the Internet Research conference. The “Ignite” presentation is a structured, high-energy, short talk in which you share your passion and creative ideas about internet research. If you are excited about a new perspective, an issue, or a practice taking place on the internet, this is the place to get others excited about it as well.|
Like pecha-kucha, Ignite is formed around a formalism: you must create a “deck” of 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. This represents a radical departure from the traditional paper presentation, and is focused on telling an enlightening story, making an argument, and inciting an audience to come to your way of thinking and action. Keep the logos, but add pathos: humor, wit, rhetorical (and physical) stunts are encouraged. It’s academic stand-up.
If you are one of the several dozen people that were in the backchannel last year complaining about boring PowerPoint presentations, here’s where the rubber meets the road. Show us what you can do!
