Ignite Portland running into fire code issues or I’ll take “irony” for 500, Alex.

Ignite Portland is filling up. So much so, that they’re about to overrun the space so kindly donated by the folks at Wieden+Kennedy.

It’s a fire code issue.

Ignite. Fire code. Get it? (Tap, tap, tap) Is this thing on?

Anyway, don’t let that stop you. Head on over to the Ignite Portland Upcoming page and RSVP. If need be, I’ll give up my seat so that you can get in to see the presentations.

Who’s presenting? I’m glad you asked, the presenters are:

  • Raven Zachary (What is Ignite?)
  • Urban Scout
  • Steve Morris
  • Audrey Eschright
  • Sarah Gilbert
  • Kevin Tate
  • Scott Huber
  • Scott Kveton
  • Crystal Beasley
  • Douglas Wolk
  • Hideshi Hamaguchi
  • Adam Duvander
  • Justin Kistner
  • Keith Gerr
  • Bill DeRouchey
  • MarcoPolo
  • Selena Deckelmann
  • MJ

    I know! This is crazy. When we started planning, we assumed 100-200 people. We’re actually going to stop taking RSVPs when we hit 325 on upcoming (assuming a few people won’t show). I think we’ll hit the limit before noon tomorrow.

    Josh will be taping the entire event and will publish the video for those who aren’t able to attend.

    It’s on FIRE ;-)

  2. Har! I honestly hadn’t thought of that pun. But I’m going to shamelessly steal it and use it now. Thanks. :-)
