Ignite Denver Wrap, up WXMW Party
I always get so wrapped up in blogging elsewhere that johnwilker.com get’s a bit neglected :(
I just finished Ignite Denver a week ago (3/11), and it was a huge success, better than the first for sure (organization wise! Sessions have kicked ass each time). It kinda sucks that people compare it to Ignite Boulder. Well duh, of course it’s not. I don’t have a huge startup community and those types of connections to donate swag and buy beer. I wish I did, and my goal for Ignite Denver 3 is to get some sponsor action, but it sucks that people are so lame they compare at all. Go to Boulder if you’re so in love with it, and don’t waste my time, hater.
I’ve found that, I have a pretty limited social media whick. The night after Ignite there was a tweetup, and I just wasn’t feeling it, not in the slightest. I don’t know what it was, i just wasn’t feeling as social as I was the night before, or at the previous tweetups.
I can’t wait for the next tweetup, since I’ll have a fully charged social-ness tank :)
This coming week, what’s up? Oh a little thing called the West by MidWest (WXMW)
Dave Wiskus and I are throwing a little get together for those who were too cool to go to SXSW (and even those who weren’t and have come back). It’s gonna be a fun time! I’ll have my Flip cam and iPhone to document the party! Since I was too wrapped up in Ignite to get more than a pic per presenter. :(
Oh and 360|Flex’s website is back and better than ever (as a WordPress blog). Tom and I have changed hosting providers for all the 360Conferences sites.
I’ll also be moving Nicole’s sites from CFDynamics, since not only did they move our sites again with out notice, thereby fucking up nicole’s blog, but have been completely unhelpful. Oh and whatever hole let hackers into our company sites, also let them into my personal sites. I’d be surprised if every site on the box nicole’s blog and lazybear are on weren’t hacked too. I really think CFDynamics not only dropped the ball, but then seems to have ignored the problem.
