[edit] What is it?

Five Minutes of Fame (5MoF) is an adaptation of CCC's Lightning Talks. Our implementation is ten five minute talks in an hour, with a short intermission so you can get another beer.

Check out these 30 seconds of fame excerpts for a taste

Currently, we are seeking any clear glass bottles from visitors and guests. The bottles are going into a Maker Fair Project by Noise Bridge. Please include any clear glass bottles with your questions on this nights.

We look forward to seeing You and Your Projects! http://www.meetup.com/noisebridge/events/228631463/

[edit] Why are we doing this?

There are many reasons:

  • It's great for people who are interested in what's going on at Noisebridge -- no need to sit through long lectures.
  • Some people are working on projects that are not ready for a full 30 minute or hour long talk, but they want to get their ideas out. Maybe they need help, maybe they want to propose an idea to the Noisebridge community.
  • Some people are shy to public speaking and want to practice without giving an "official" conference talk, which can be daunting. This is a great way to try it out, in a community of peers.
  • San Francisco is the mecca for startups. If you're trying to sell your idea to someone, you need to be able to explain it in five minutes or less.
  • "The Law of Fives"
