I'm on a panel. I'm sure FTL will want to interview me about it because I'm so interesting and beloved.
I didn't see your show on the schedule though
The local newspaper just came out with it's 2nd article on the event. Here is around 1/2 of the article.

NASHUA – If you’re going to hold the interest of the Twitter-enabled world, where 140 characters is a conversation, you can’t dawdle.
Hence the idea of Ignite Talks, a format that limits speakers to five minutes total and exactly 20 presentation slides, each of which stays visible for 15 seconds and then disappears. Zip, bang – next!
The format was started in 2006 amid the tech crowd in Seattle as a speedier version of popular TED talks, which were themselves conceived as quick-hit variations on the traditional lecture format. On Thursday, it will come to Nashua as part of Liberty Forum, the annual gathering organized by the Free State Project.
No fewer than 16 Ignite talks are scheduled between 8 and 9:40 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua. They’ll touch on topics from “winter safety” to “how to hitchhike in New Hampshire” to something called “pornology,” which is “what happens when porn and tech hook up,” as well as several discourses about economics and public policy from a libertarian perspective.
“You can come get a bite-sized sample,” is how Free State Project president Carla Gericke puts it.
The entire barrage is free, as are the more traditionally sized talks during the day. This is the Free State Project’s attempt to spread the word about the movement.
Other free events on Thursday include an introduction to the crypto-currency bitcoin at 1:30 p.m., a discussion about the death penalty at 4 p.m., and lessons in “counter-surveillance” for those with “NSA spying concerns” at 6:30 p.m.
