Ignite Portland 3
Reading time: Less than a minute
We were fortunate to be able to sponsor Ignite Portland 3, which was held at the Baghdad theatre in Portland, Oregon.
What is Ignite? Let’s let them answer that (from Ignite Portland site)
“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.”1
Several of us from Planet Argon came down to enjoy the evening. Here are a few videos that I (Robby) took on my Flip.
- The Evolution of our Social Brains, by Jenny Andrews
- Boiling Water in Five Easy Steps, by Vanessa Holfeltz
- “Fracking robots, dude!”:, by Sharon Greenfield
- How To Run a Startup and Not Lose Your Mind, Eva Schweber

A Short Course On How to Ride Freight Trains – Gerry Van Zand
Don’t get mad, make a video! – Phillip Kerman
As sponsors, we had an opportunity to go up in front of the audience for 15 seconds. Allison got up to introduce everybody to Planet Argon.
Additionally, it was fun to watch just how active Twitter was during this event.
Thanks to everyone who came up to introduce themselves and to all the speakers for making it an fun and educational evening!
