The lightning talks are one of the highlights of the annual Code4Lib gathering. They are five-minute-long presentations that can be used to showcase new technology, a project that you've just started and want to show off, or a chance to prognosticate on a topic (but only for 5 minutes). In 2011 I tried to replicate that same conference experience using webinar software. It was moderately successful with four presentations  that worked pretty well. So let's try it again!
The webinar software has been reserved for April 3rd at 1:30pm Eastern time and a signup page has been posted to the Code4Lib Wiki . Not coming to the conference but still have something to offer; sign up! Went to the conference and it sparked an idea; sign up after the Chicago meeting! Want to watch the virtual lightning talks? There's a page for that, too . Have feedback? Let me know!
