Ignite Columbus 2

A big shout out to Alvin Borromeo and Dan Rockwell for organizing last night's Ignite Columbus 2.

For those of you who didn't make it to Ignite Columbus you missed a great night. Alvin and Dan really outdid themselves with Ignite Columbus 2.

I found myself at 6pm at the old Smith Brothers building in the beautiful Lextant office space. The space quickly filled up with a standing room crowd of over 100 attendees. Mike Bowers opened up the discussion with Columbus Inventions and we were treated to 15 or so other speakers throughout the night.

Everyone I talked enjoyed themselves and said they would be at the next Ignite. So if you want to experience the wide variety of viewpoints and opinions check out Ignite Columbus 3.

Thanks also to the speakers and sponsors, lextant and edgecase. And finally, thanks to Motion Drift for taking video of the event.

Here's what some of the attendees had to say:

Great speakers and a first class location and organization made my first Ignite an amazing experience I look forward to the next one.

Ignite 2 tonight was a great event... it's a perfect reflection of the melting pot that our Tech Life community represents. I learned random stuff on a myriad of topics and that's my favorite part. Thank you Dan and Alvin and all who helped contribute to putting the event on. It was a blast.

Fantastic event. Combines the opportunity to work on presentation skills, learn about businesses, hear new strategies, learn about tech and social media. All in a fun environment, aka beer and pizza.

The diversity of presentations was excellent, despite the few obvious "hire my company" pitches. The event was well attended, and well conducted.
