Upcoming 5mof: Feb 18th, 8pm

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

Future Events held on the Third Thursday of every month at 7pm/8pm, at Noisebridge, 2169 Mission St, San Francisco.


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"
