I’m inviting you to come to a very special event called Ignite NYC . It’s an evening of dynamic five-minute presentations celebrating geek performances. This gathering of media and web enthusiasts will be held on Monday, September 15th, 7pm â€“ 11:30pm at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street. And it’s FREE!
