My pal Eric from denver twitter connection has offered up 10 pokens to raffle off at Ignite Denver 3 at the Irish Snug!

The Poken is a great little gadget that replaces the business card. Your poken high fours another and, bam contact info exchanged, friends on twitter, facebook, etc. Oh and they’re USB so you just plug ’em in to set up.

I can’t wait to give it a shot! Make sure you’re there to be in the raffle!

There’s 8 spots left! Don’t miss out! RSVP!

Ignite Denver 3: The Line Up!

I went and checked out the Irish snug yesterday, make sure I knew where I wanted to put the screen and make sure audio was an option. I gotta say, this venue, might excuse the last two. We’re gonna have some seats right up front for those that want to sit and watch the presentations distraction free. There’s a whole section behind the screen for those that came for Ignite, but wanna yak the night away and not watch. The audio is piped through the house so there’s 1. no noise competition (Maloney’s) and 2. not “I couldn’t really hear” problem (Fado)

I’m really excited. Hope you are too.

Here’s the line up as it stands right now;

  • Booze on the Brain! (or the neuropharmacology of alcohol)
  • Does This Make My Ass Look Fat?
  • Ignite the entrepreneur within: 50 Interviews
  • History of Rome (For those have have been to Ignite Denver 1 and 2, RJ promises he will not have family trouble and scheduling conflicts! He swore it on the flying Spaghetti Monster.)
  • Trinkets and Nuggets about the Modern Japan
  • The Similarities Between Emperor Palpatine & Our History
  • Leveraging the Internet To Land a Book Deal
  • Pie and the contemporary psyche
  • Mucking Out Your Inbox: How to Be More Productive with Email
  • Toys for relieving stress in the office
  • Slammed Doors and Phones: Or the Saga of a Young Organizer
  • How a Video becomes Public Access TV in a Web2.0 World

Ignite Denver 3, two and a half weeks away!

Ignite Denver 2 – Wrapped up, planning #3

Mad props to all those who presented! All totally awesome topics! It was a great honor to have so many smarty pants’ in the same place!

For those that couldn’t make it, here’s the entire slide deck from the night! 

In an effort to not lose, but to build momentum, I’m starting the planning for Ignite Denver 3 now! I’ll set up the user voice soon and announce that, but right now my first task is a new venue. Maloney’s was better than Fado (Ignite Denver 1), but not perfect!

For the critics, yeah yeah, it wasn’t Ignite Boulder, and for me, that’s a positive. Andrew rocks and Ignite Boulder is fun, but I’ve no interest in mimicry. Ignite Denver is going to organically find it’s place. We’ll try places out, adjust as we go. Denver isn’t Boulder, let’s embrace that and make Ignite Denver, reflect us!

Maloney’s had a lot going for it, if the pool tables (which I actually gelled on and didn’t notice the first time I was there) weren’t there, and the screen had been bigger I think it might work. Now that they (Maloney’s) knows what we’re about, they wouldn’t have music in our side, etc.

But we probably won’t do Maloney’s again. For one thing, until we find that perfect spot, Denver is just too awesome to settle for a place that’s not right! Let’s try some places out!

So that said, leave a comment, or email me at ignitedenver @ gmail . com

I’m open to checking places out, maybe even organize a pubcrawl “research” night to scout locations. @chipd did it for our Webdirections North party and it was fun, and that was how I found Maloney’s!

See you all in May sometime!
