Ignite Portland 7 tosses a couple more logs… err presentations on the fire
It’s getting to be that chilly time of year in Portland. And you know what that means? That’s right: people using coats to save seats at Ignite Portland. But it also means that the Ignite folks are looking to reward us for braving the inclement weather to come watch presenters sharing their burning ideas.
What’s the reward? More content of course. They’ve managed to cram an additional two presentations into the Ignite Portland line-up, making a grand total of 20 burning ideas.
Who got the call? Let’s take a look.
The following folks will be doing their best to run through five minutes of unstoppable slides on November 19 at the Bagdad Theater.
- Lou Alvis – Human Systems Analysis. What Are People Doing?
- Clifton B – Why Highway Communication Sucks and How We Can Make It Suck Less
- Crystal Beasley – Ecstatics, Zealots & Mass Hysteria : How we collectively lose our minds

What’s that? You’ve never been to Ignite Portland? Well, then you’re probably wondering what the heck it is. Allow the Ignite Portland organizers to explain.
If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers.
What’s more, it’s completely free to attend.
Sound interesting? I thought so. Hopefully, we’ll see you on November 19 for Ignite Portland 7.
