Ignite
Time: 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Location: 2002

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Would you pitch a project? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? We’re going to find out when we try our first Ignite event at Web 2.0 Expo. Happening Sunday evening, this will be a high-energy event. If you can’t picture what it would be like check out the videos from a recent Ignite event in Seattle.

The Ignite Expo schedule is now up and more information is available on the wiki.

Web2.Open
Time: 1:00PM - 5:00PM
Location: Alpha

The Web2.Open: Where the Attendees are the Presenters
The Web2.Open is a part of the Web 2.0 Expo, open to anyone who would like to attend. The Web2.Open was conceived with FooCamp/BarCamp in mind. This open event blends some pre-scheduled content with an open grid where the attendees fill in the sessions they either want to discuss or present themselves. It is the perfect space to provide the community at large with a place to connect with other attendees, learn more about elements of Web 2.0, and share one’s knowledge and experiences. The Web2.Open will consist of four major elements: open grid sessions, pre-scheduled speaker sessions, BoFs, and Mashroom.
