Put a little bit of Portland on stage in Seattle: Chirpify, Elemental, Urban Airship vie for GeekWire Awards

It’s no secret that I have a bit of a good natured rivalry with our friends at GeekWire. Emerald City vs Rose City, Sounders vs Timbers… you get the drift.

Interested in doing more than voting? Well, you can attend as well. And we just heard that one of our favorite Seattle investors, Chris DeVore—who has invested in a few Portland companies—will be keynoting the event.

So get on that. Or both of those things. Or whatever.

Voting ends tonight.
