Web 2.0 Expo New York, which will be taking place from November 16-20, will be starting off with Ignite NYC 7 at New World Stages in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. Co-hosted by Brady Forrest and Tikva Morowati, the evening will feature an "Ignite Mobile Music Competition" where contestants will compete using mobile instruments, i.e., recommended apps such as Sonify, Drumbanger, Zoobsby, and Blume, for a chance to win a free expo pass. Sixteen speakers will then have five minutes each to address the crowd on a topic of their choosing as their Powerpoint slides rotate automatically after 15 seconds.
