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 from May for a taste: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQUGQ3Plj-w
When and where does it happen?
Third Thursday of every month at 8pm, at Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St, San Francisco.
Thursday, January 16th, 8 PM, It's on! Sign up!
just email email@example.com for now until we fix the signup web site
As if you needed ANY reminder, Five Minutes of Fame is Noisebridge's ADD show-and-tell, squashing octets of human awesomeness into an hour like booleans in a packed byte.

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"
How can I participate?
Or just mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you on my secret spreadsheet. I will also mail you on the Monday before the event!
How can I attend?
Just show up! 2169 Mission St, San Francisco
If for any reason you're unable to attend, you can usually watch it live on our UStream Channel.
Can anyone attend or speak?
- There are a limited number of slots for speakers, and members or regulars are given priority to speak about the projects they are working on. Although there are substitutes for people don't show, schedule early to be assured your 5MoF!
What if I show up late?
- If you are giving a talk, please notify me so we can rearrange the schedule. If you want to see a talk that you're going to miss, find the person who gave it and chat with them for five minutes :)
