  • A method to Rethink, Share and Shape ideas
  • An informal forum for Ideas Worth Sharing
  • A social meeting for controlled release of Nerdism without bothering others
  • Not a Competition: ∑i=0ii=∞ >> i0 + i1 + i2 + ... + i

What is µTalk (2)

i=0ii=∞ >> i0 + i1 + i2 + ... + i

Why a µTalk (1)

  • Normal social gatherings are not suitable to discuss the stuff that keeps you awake
  • Normal social gatherings do not provide the audience that will get the message, so you’re stopped trying
  • Spontaneous meetings are no longer frequent enough to share ideas face-to-ace
  • Discussion about a particular topic brings it to a higher level!

Why a µTalk (2)

  • Ideas create new ideas
  • Nothing is too ambitious with the right set of tools; Create the right tools when they are needed
  • This meeting is a tool too

Why a µTalk (3)
