In a Crowded Theater

This Thursday night, I’ll be presenting “How to Solve Any Puzzle in Less Than 47 Minutes” at Ignite Portland 7. The title is, of course, hugely misleading; I’ll be discussing puzzle hunts in general and walking through one Clue from the MegaHard Game (2000) at breakneck speed.

For those unfamiliar with the Ignite format: Each speaker gets exactly five minutes to present. You submit twenty slides, and each one advances automatically after fifteen seconds. Topic-wise, pretty much anything goes; this time around there’ll be talks about DB Cooper, robots, karaoke, hooping (with live demo), and more.

I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an embedded puzzle in my slides.

Check out the complete lineup, and if you’re not in Portland, visit the web site on Thursday for info on the live video stream.
