The hot-ticket event next week seems to be Eric Ries' "Lean Start-Up" presentation, which takes place at the Stata Center on MIT's campus on Thursday. The subtitle is "A Disciplined Approach to Imagining, Designing, and Building New Products." Ries is a techie, entrepreneur, and advisor to the eminent Valley VC firm Kleiner Perkins. He blogs at Lessons Learned, and tweets at @EricRies.

It's totally sold out, but you can have one of the last five tickets. Just e-mail me using the form at right ("Send an E-mail to Scott") or by clicking my name in that right column, and tell me what your one can't-miss event for the rest of 2009 is. What's the event on your calendar (aside from this one) that you've been telling your friends and colleagues about most often? On Monday, I'll pick five entrants at random to get tickets to Ries' talk at MIT, which happens Thursday, November 19th at 6:30. And I'll post some of the most frequently mentioned events. (Get your e-mails in by Monday, November 16th at noon Eastern. One entry per person, please, or you'll be disqualified.)

And if you can't make the "Lean Start-Ups" talk on Thursday, but would still like to share what the can't miss event on your 2009 calendar is, feel free to post a comment below.

Here's Ries' presentation from this year's Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco:

And here's some video of Ries in action:

The Ries event is being organized by Tom Summit of the recruiting firm (and start-up info site) Genotrope. (Incidentally, tickets to this event were all given out free and thus have no face value. I suspect some attorney somewhere would like me to let you know that.)
