Where is it?

Location: California Room.

What is it?

The WikiSym Speed Demo, organized by Meatball, is a great way to get to know your fellow conference attendees, and more importantly, for them to get to know you. Have you done something cool? Does your project need more attention? Do you have a great new idea that you just need to bounce off people? The Speed Demo is an important event at WikiSym to get your message out. The Speed Demo offers an informal venue to showcase your work, one-on-one with the audience.

You don't need much to prepare. All you need is a laptop and something to say for five minutes. Five minutes?! Don't worry, you'll just be saying it over and over again. To give you the maximum exposure and feedback, you will present to only a handful of audience members at a time in an intimate setting. Every five minutes, you'll meet a fresh new audience.

It's simple. It's fast. It's fun.

Who should participate?

Anyone who is attending WikiSym that has something they want to show to the world should participate. Don't be coy. A Speed Demo is a lot of fun for both the audience and presenters. And best of all, it's easy. All you need is a laptop and a five minute message.

How does it work?

For the first 60 minutes:

It's that simple.

For the last 30 minutes, all presenters will be given the rest of the time for a prolonged demonstration to audience members interested in their particular presentation.

When & where?

WikiSym is October 17-18, San Diego, CA.

The Speed Demo will be Monday, 3:30pm-5:00pm.
