Tim O’Reilly points to a Instructables Show and Tell
Bring your friends & family, drinks or a snack for the table, and something you’ve made (or are thinking about or working on) to share with the group. You’ll meet a diverse group of smart, excited art and technology geeks who want to talk to you about your projects and ideas. Please RSVP to canida(*at*) instructables.com so we’ll have a decent guess how many people to expect.
Examples: your new LED, LEGO, or K’nex project, a cool screen-printed T-shirt, neat origami, a cool bike mod, home-made kimchee, alternate uses for your ipod, a fire-breathing Godzilla, a neat example of vintage technology, or just a cool idea you’d like to explore with other like-minded people. Anything you’d put up as an Instructable is definitely fair game- bring it by and show it off.
Note: NO PowerPoint. You’ve got 2-4 minutes to talk about your project; words and models are best way to do a quick demo.
These are somewhere between the Ignite Seattle and the bar aka democamp events. I love the idea that the schedule is not established at the event. The challenge for every presenter is to “share what you make and how others can make it”. I wonder what the quality of the experiences for attendees at Ignite, Show and Tell and DemoCamp events.

The presentations are the starting point for a conversation. The goals is to show what you’ve been working on. Spark conversation. Find others who are interested in similar problems.
Since the talks (should) last only 35 minutes (five x seven = thirty-five) there will be plenty of time for networking and socializing.Each talk is 20 slides long and each slide is on for only 15 seconds. – Ignite Deux: The Speaker Schedule
If you’re in the Bay Area (March 9) or Boston (March 10) or Seattle (April 5), you should go check out these events and share your experiences.
