Depending on when you are reading this, either tomorrow or today is Ignite Bend 4. I don’t know how this slipped completely under my radar, but Ignite is definitely something cool you’ll want to see—either in person at the Tower Theatre or via live webcast.
Here’s the meat of the press release:
Tower Theatre ‐ Bend, OR
February 25, 2010 ‐ 7pm (Doors open at 6:30pm)
Ignite Bend 4 will be webcast live thanks to our multimedia partner, Pinnacle Media. Presentations may also be selected for inclusion in the O’Reilly “Ignite Show” which highlights a different talk from Ignite events around the world for weekly broadcast at their site.
ABOUT IGNITE BEND – If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 PowerPoint slides and they rotated automatically every 15 seconds? Around the world people have been putting together “Ignite” nights to share their answers. Visit the Ignite Bend website to find out more about local events.
