Internet Week: Going To Three Events So Far
Digital Dumbo: Here I Come
July 1 Digital Dumbo: Do Not Miss

I tried and failed to get on any Internet Week panel. But something better might happen. I just saw this in my Facebook stream, and jumped at the opportunity. I am applying for my five minutes at Ignite NYC during Internet Week. Tikva, make it happen, please.

Ignite NYC XII, Internet Week — Call for Speakers
The next Ignite NYC will take place during Internet Week on Wednesday, June 8th at The New School's Tishman Auditorium (66 West 12th street).

If you have an engaging idea for a talk, please tell us who you are and what you want

- DON'T submit a product demo,
- DO submit a how-to,
- DO submit something you are passionate about. It doesn't have to be work-related. It could be something you are curious about!
- DO submit something inspirational or sublime or absurd, complete with lessons learned.

Each speaker will get 20 slides that auto-advance after 15 seconds for a total of five-minutes.

Believe it or not, I am the top authority on the topic on the planet. The first major revolution of the 21st century happened in Nepal: April 2006. It has not happened better anywhere else. And I am the only Nepali in America who worked full time for it. I know this thing inside out. And I have blogged about it. Go dig my archives.
