Lightning Student Demos of Google Technologies

We are trying something completely different this month. We are inviting college students to come and give Lightning Demos of their current projects using Google Technology. Also, our meeting this month is being co-hosted by the Web 2.0 Mapping and Social Networks Group A.K.A. the WebMapSocial Meetup.

A Lightning Talk or Demo is a short presentation given at a conference or similar forum. Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers. Each short talk will have a 5 minute limit. In order to allow rapid changes between speakers, talks and demos that can be done using just a web browser will be given first priority. This minimizes the dead time during laptop swaps at the podium. Talks that require a separate laptop will go last.
