Ignite SXSW 2021 - Vision of the Future. In this Ignite we'll ask 16 experts in their fields to look ahead 10 years and help us understand how our every day lives will be affected by advances in technology and society. This will be an official SXSW event promoted in the booklet and directory. It will be open to all SXSW participants and then we can sell additional tickets as well.

In order to enforce the slide rules at Ignite we had to figure out how to make the slides auto-advance. If you're practicing for an Ignite talk you should definitely practice with the slides on autopilot. First, select all of the slides at once. Go to the "Inspector" floating window and select the icon at the top left, second from the left (its a rounded rectangle icon). Change "Start Transition" from "on click" to "automatically" and then set the delay to 15 seconds. We'll be using a Dissolve transition. Then hit play! Continue reading

Ignite is meant to be fun, informative, mind expanding - but not salesy or commercial. This is not the place to pitch your product or personal services. If you get up on stage and start promoting yourself, your slides will be replaced by the flaming jackass on the screen and you'll be boo-ed off the stage. Don't be a flaming jackass! Continue reading

Hi Ryan, I backup my iPhoto library the same way described above. It's stored on a redundant drive, it gets backed up by Time Machine to a local copy, and then by JungleDisk to the cloud. Neither Time Machine or JungleDisk seem to have the problem you describe with Carbonite. My understanding is that the iPhoto library is stored as a special package that can be treated as a single file or as a bunch of individual files, so it makes sense that some things might not handle it elegantly. ~Josh
