Ignite-style talks are very, very energetic. They last 5 minutes each and the slideshow is set to automatically change slides every 15 seconds. Thus, one cannot be slow or go over time. These kinds of talks can be very funny, yet also very powerful. At ScienceOnline2010, we will have an Ignite session on Saturday night, at the Radisson Hotel during the banquet/dinner. Here is the lineup of speakers and topics:

“Why Triangle is Better than Silicon Valley” – Wayne Sutton

“My “Little Black Book” of Scientists I Love” – Joanne Manaster

“Crowdsourced Chemistry – Why Online Chemistry Data Needs Your Help” – Antony Williams

“Blogging on the tenure track” – Janet Stemwedel

“Being mentored – not only for grad students” – Pawel Szczesny

“Dive Into Your Imagination” – Annie Crawley

“SARS, Drugs, and Biosensors” – Aaron Rowe

“The Story of NanoBioTechnology” – Mary Spiro
