Vote to watch Math scare the crap out of himself

So, Some of you may know or not know that there is this thing called Ignite.

What is Ignite?

“Ignite is a night of presentations on a variety of topics, with a twist. Each presentation has 20 slides that automatically advance after 15 seconds. It is a worldwide movement. We bring Fort Collins geeks, designers, and hipsters together for a night of beer drinking and fun. “

I have submitted a talk for Ignite Fort Collins #14. Yep I am facing my fears of Public Speaking, Standing out and being noticed. I hoping to do it in a big way by doing at the Lincoln Center Performance Hall (Yes, their big stage). I have not yet been selected though. Selection process goes as follow:

FAQ for a G.O.U.S. by Matthew Stein
See The G.O.U.S. in the corner looking shy and intimidating, boy you must have questions. Hmmm, I am curious… I wonder… No I shouldn’t ask… He looks scary… He might eat my children… Wait why is that wall growling at me? Wait What is a G.O.U.S.? Questions will be answered. Safely. No kidnapping. No Climbing the tallest building in town with a poor frighten woman in hand because he is frightened by the larger stage.
