Last time I was at Ignite I was anything but nervous. No where near knots. As a matter of fact I was down right chipper to attend the event. I had a chance to sit back and relax on one of the comfy sofas in the balcony with friends and family and survey the events at hand.
I watched closely each presentation and, as much as I could from the second floor, I observed what went on in between. What I saw then was what I usually see at Portland Tech events, a lot of love and family and gushy stuff. Everyone smiling and laughing and being proud. I was smiley too! Look at this lovely photo of donpdonp and I at the last Ignite, taken by Aaron Hockley.
If you can’t tell from that photo, I had fun, a ton of it… But I wasn’t nearly as excited then as I am for Ignite Portland tonight.
It’s going to be awesome… as long as I don’t faint or anything before 7:20 ish when I take the stage.
