REMINDER: All your Ignite Portland 5 tickets are belong to you tomorrow at 10 AM


Ignite Portland 5 ticketsTomorrow, Ignite Portland will open ticket “sales” for Ignite Portland 5 at 10:00 AM sharp.

Ignite Portland 5 on February 5th. Get it? It’s a mnemonic device.

No, not that Mnemonic device. This mnemonic device. And the 10? 5 + 5 my friend. Easy easy easy.

Now where was I?

Oh yes. I say “sales,” because you don’t have to pay anything for the tickets. They’re free.

Okay okay. I don’t want to get into some kind of neo-sociological argument about how you pay for Ignite with your attention and social capital and whatnot. They’re the “don’t cost you any cash” free. That kind of free.

Or as the hip (drinking age) kids like to say “Free as in beer.”

To quote a famous Portlander, “Free is a very good price.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be camping out in front of my computer—all night long—just to save my place in line. No cuts.

To join me, visit Ignite Portland.

    This time the Ignite ticket team is adding a new feature- a waiting list. After tickets are gone you’ll have a chance to get on the list. Instead of releasing canceled and unclaimed tickets back into the wild, they will be automatically distributed to the next folks on the list. So if you don’t get a ticket tomorrow, don’t despair but do get on the list.

    I’ve been in line since last tuesday, I’ve had my tape all over the ignite sidewalk back off!

    I think there should be a meme-filter on the Ignite ticket system so that people who didn’t understand the title of this post have to go to the back of the line. :)

  4. I was just about to send you and email and ask if you lost your mind regarding that headline! I’m glad I made it to the end of the article and save myself the embarrassment of your return email to RTFM! LOL
