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 – 11:30pm at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street. And it’s FREE!

It’s essentially an awesome party/ pocket-sized conference events for geeks. It is  going to be in a 500 seat theatre and will start with FREE BEER 7-9pm and a CUPCAKE DESIGN CONTEST hosted by Bre Pettis of Etsy (and you can bring your own cupcake too).

Three of our very own ITPers will present. Andrew Schneider and Kati London, from the class of ’07, and Raffi Krikorian who is an adjunct prof at ITP!
