Last night John and I went to Ignite Portland and it was a ton of fun...for those curious;
If you had five minutes to talk to Portland what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Launch a web site? Teach a hack? Talk about recent learnings, successes, failures?
What is Ignite Portland? A bunch of fast-paced, interesting presentations - 20 slides for 15 seconds each. Our mantra is "share burning ideas" - just about any topic will do, as long as it's interesting. From tech to crafts to business to just plain fun!(description taken from ignites website)
It was the second Ignite Portland event and John's employer was a sponsor, we are so glad we went and look forward to many other events like this. While all the presenters did a great job we would have to say our favorite presenter was; Why Deutschland Loves David Hasselhoff. You can watch his clip on http://www.igniteportland.com/. Another presenter I found interesting/thought provoking was, Time for Portland to Take Its Place.
What a cool city we live in...a city full of wonder and opportunities!!! We are so blessed!
