Update:  Damn it.  Denied.  So much for my shot at greatness.  I'll ponder throwing the whole presentation out here for amusement purposes.

Sunday at about 7:45 p.m. I submitted "How to Create Your Own Stick Figure Cartoon" to Ignite! Minneapolis.  They received over 50 presentation submissions, per Twitter, so I don't know how Erik and I will stack up, but I figured it was worth a try.  I'm not sure if I'm more nervous they won't accept it, or they will.  It's been a long time since I presented to several hundred people.  I'm not sure how I'm going to practice if we get a green light.  I wonder if Klund will ratchet up his assertion that we're pilfering his intellectual content if the low expectations cartoon is in the mix.

The rules are 20 slides, no animation (or similar crap), 15 seconds per slide.  A total of 5 minutes.  We didn't have to have a complete presentation to submit, but it's ready, just in case, and to be sure we have 5 minutes worth of something to say.  We're still considering how we'd handle the (invariably) wild twittering that happens during each presentation.
