And the winner is! Harvest! What brought Harvest in for the win? Namely the free acct, since I don’t do enough concurrent projects the price for the basic was bit steep at this time.

Are they staying in Pres. suites around town? If you’re feeling flush with cash, give me some, then…

Ignite Denver, open for business!

That’s right kiddies! The blog is up! the Email address is active. The fancy new logo straight from the O’Reilly presses is done (check it out, right there to the left!), and we’re good to go.

We’re taking submissions to present so if you got something to say, email us. Mark your calendar Denver, Boulder, Highlands Ranch, Centennial, Casa Bonita! Ignite Denver is coming! (Yeah I stole the Casa Bonita bit from 93.3, sue me)
