Ignite pii2014

ignite_pii2014We were excited to host Ignite pii2014 at this year’s Privacy Identity Innovation conference in Silicon Valley.


Founded by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis, Ignite is an O’Reilly Media event that started in Seattle in 2006 and has since taken place in over 100 cities around the world. It’s a fast-paced, fun format where participants give 5-minute talks about a topic they’re passionate about using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds.


Ignite pii2014 took place at the Crowne Plaza Palo Alto hotel during lunch on Friday, November 14th at the pii2014 Silicon Valley conference, and it was open to all registered pii2014 attendees at no additional charge.


Thanks to all of the pii2014 participants who applied for a chance to give a talk. Below is a list of the Ignite pii2014 speakers and topics that were selected:
