So this evening, some friends and I went to check out the Ignite Seattle “unconference” up in Capitol Hill here in Seattle.
Overall, we were all incredibly impressed. The “unconference” format was excellent - short 5 minute presentations, all on very interesting topics, kept things flowing quickly and you never got bored. Plus, easy access to beer never hurts.
Some of the excellent presenters included:
- RealityAllStarz (freaking sweet, I already have an account)
- Biznik, business social networking
- The Darfur Wall (Go. Donate. Now!)
- Scott â€œThe Closerâ€ Ruthfield from Amazon.com, on how Amazon doesn't suck as much as you think
- Rob Flickenger with HackerFriendly, on "book sprints" and print-on-demand
I’ll be at the next one. For sure.
