As someone who is happy to believe that the Internet exists by magic, I don’t know how I keep ending up at events like Ignite Raleigh, where a set of 15 short PowerPoint presentations, mainly focused on social media, were given. I don’t even have a data plan for my cell phone, you guys.
I do, however, tweet and the #OurHashTag guys did a great job of promoting this event through twitter, so I signed up and went. It was held at the Lincoln Theater in downtown Raleigh. Want to make a very geeky program into something that feels hip? Set it in a rock club like these guys did! Sure, it was somewhat difficult to get a good view of the all-important projector screen, but the venue gave the event a chill, fun vibe.by
