Ignite Seattle: Seattle's vibrant community
Ignite Seattle was tonight and it was the 10th time it has happened. I have to say tonight’s Ignite was the best one that I’ve attended. The speakers were great and everyone one of them did a great job.
I went to the Ignite Prefunk event at Pintxo which was coordinated by Giyen Dave Manningsmith (incorrectly gave credit to Dave! Updated 6/16/10). Seattle’s such a small town and being active on Twitter has made it even smaller. I love the fact that I can recognize people that I’m meeting at these events because I see their Twitter avatars daily in my stream. (nice to meet you face-to-face Liana and Heidi Miller!) It’s pretty cool to feel almost an instant connection with people because of this interaction.
The friendships that are being created are so amazing. Shauna Causey is hysterical. The interaction between Shauna, Scott Ecker, and I was off the chart funny. Scott’s prerequisite before following someone on Twitter is candle light dinner; Shauna’s clicked this “follow me” button 16,000 times. The jokes had me rolling… I think we were in tears (at least I know I was). We’ve really got a great community here in Seattle and it’s because of the really genuinely nice people.
I can't remember laughing that hard in so long! Making fun of ourselves and social media is quite fun. Peter, you've got a amazing talent for making people laugh. Thanks for making Ignite 10 so memorable!
I think it was Scott and you that were cracking me up. Love the ROI question re: social media… also love the contrast between someone with 2 followers and someone with 16,000. I also think the sangria had a little to do with it too!
You sure it was Dave Manningsmith that coordinated it? You might want to check your sources again…. Pretty sure he had little to do with it.

I saw a tweet that was thanking Dave. You mean everything I read on Twitter isn't true? 😉 I've tracked down the person that coordinated it and thanked her!
