It looks like there’s been some activity over on the Ignite Portland site. It’s no longer reporting a 403 error, and the blog is at the very early stages of taking shape.
Ignite Portland will be fashioned after Ignite Seattle:
Ignite Seattle is a geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking).
The Ignite Portland team is still in the planning phase, but given the folks involved, it promises to be a must-attend event.
More news as it becomes available.
