Brady Forrest's Ignite, an O'Reilly organized after-hours new tech party and get-together, came to the CU campus in Boulder for the first time last night, hosted by Andrew Hyde. I've been to other O'Reilly events before, but didn't know what to expect at Ignite. What I found was free beer and hilarious quick-witted, 5-minute flash presentations on topics including 'the year of mobile', 'creating your personal brand, 'what the hell angel investors are thinking', 'lucid dreaming', and 'crashing parties'. Without boundaries and nothing taboo, the interaction was intoxicating (or maybe it was the beer). The key takeaway for me? I didn't know tech talks could be this much fun. But hey, this is Boulder Colorado!
