The Ignite series of talks from O'Reilly cover a wide range of topics. This was the lead-off presentation on March 29, 2012, at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA. It picks up on a theme (and borrows the same History 2.0 title) that I presented at BarCamp Boston 5 at MIT on April 17, 2010.
The video of this talk is available on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DnDFOcwVMo
The required format for an Ignite talk is 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds. As such, the text on the slides is kept to a minimum. This can make it difficult to get the main points without hearing the talk that went along with the slides. To reduce the potential for misunderstanding, please read the notes that go with each slide.
The History List (www.TheHistoryList.com) is used by history-related organizations to publicize their events, sites, and exhibits to people in the community, state, and region, or who are planning a trip from another region. There is no cost to list.
Free tools make it easy to share an constantly-updated list of events with partners, members, fans, and the media. For state organizations, The History List's tools provide an easy way to power a calendar with activities entered by participating organizations throughout the state and displayed centrally on one searchable, sortable calendar.
