At an HV Open meeting, every single person there knows at
least 10 interesting things about open technology that at
least half the room does not know. This group exists to
share this interesting information with each other. One way we
do this is with a series of short lightning talks before the
A good lightning talk is:
- Short - 5 minutes (we let people go up to 10, but
no longer than that)
- Interesting - it shares something new with the
group, and gives people a hook at to why they might be
impacted by it or use it.
- Path to learn more - almost anything you'd talk
about with a lightning talk would take much more than 5
minutes to understand. That's ok. Consider it the "movie
trailer" for the topic. Make sure the audience knows where
to satisfy their curiosity and learn more.
Propose Lightning Talk
After you propose one, the HV Open organizers will be in touch
shortly to get you on the schedule.
