Gathering of Lightning – 28/08/2014

It’s that time again! We’re happy to announce that the next instalment of our popular event series Gathering of Lightning will take place on Thursday 28th August at 6:30pm.

A series of speakers will have a maximum of 7 minutes to give an only-slightly-prepared speech/rant/eulogy on anything they feel strongly about. Audience participation is encouraged and speakers should be aware of foam-projectiles heading their way if they dare go over their time limit.

Past talks have ranged from wearable tech to beer to quantum mechanics to baking and we’re sure this lineup will be just as strange and wonderful. So far we’ve got our old regular, Daniel Porter ranting about something as yet undecided between the new Farset management system, and his Quake-net setup at this years QCon, Owen McEvoy talking about the launch of a brilliant Belfast based ethically sourced foods cooperative, and Sarah McBride from the Create:2014 team talking about their kickstarter-funded conference. On the ‘maybe’ list we have Jenni from Tascomi ranting about parenting technically saavy children and Martin from Gilchrist&Co talking about his Kickstarter Accountisfy, along with the usual walk-in types we know and love!

Oh and if you’re not already convinced, we’ll be serving beer and pizza.
