Last week I had the chance to enjoy the thirteenth installment of Ignite Baltimore, an ongoing lightning talk series. In case you missed the event, here are a few of the more memorable talks from the evening:

Paul Mathews‘ look at Baltimore’s historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood was a great crash course for newcomers and longtime Baltimore lovers alike:

Trevor Villet’s talk on Detroit and Baltimore:

Adam Ruben took a look at the public perception of science:

Possibly the most vigorously applauded of the evening was Catharine Robertson‘s talk about discovering details around her birth mother:

Another clever and well received talk was Brad Wray‘s look at how people choose to win benefits through cooperation or competition:

Tronster did a nice job of closing out the evening:

Last week was, to say the least, intense. And it probably seems as though I’ve lapsed into another brief (unintentional) quiet spell. While that was not a conscious decision, things happen and so it goes. This week is shaping up to be similarly busy, but in a much better way (hopefully).

While this piece still does not feel “done,” here is another discarded iteration that I rather like.

What do you think? Any ideas where it’s going? This is another “sibling” of the last two iterations I’ve shared recently here and here. Can you see the relationships?
