Y’know… I just like Ignite Waterloo a lot. I like the energy of the people organizing/speaking/attending.
I was diggin’ the shadows of the heat waves coming off the stage lights.
Phil was elsewhere tonight. Memory Tree jumped in.
Just about ready.
Bastow’s origami cube.
This made me think of the movie Le ballon rouge. A lucky charm, I think.
Super-glad to be back at The Tannery for Ignite. Much closer drive.
The Notorious Matan Brothers.
Front Row Bastow.
I think this guy was the official photog. He seemed busy and we were just goofing around a lot. Nikon/Canon thing, maybe? Just kiddin’. What’s up, brother? (update: hello Erich Nolan Bertussi, long-time Ignite supporter)
Mr. King-and-Ottawa Howe looking and Ms Amy Schlueter sponsoring.
David Yoon kicks it again as host.
Jim Tigwell – Up in the Air – 5 minutes of straight juggling while presenting, bravo. Ball jokes abounding.
James Howe – Make your Voice Heard – interesting to hear from the man from the corner IRL.
++ for the brogues
Jonathan Wise – What is the Cloud?
Mohamed AbdElRazik Mansour – Egyptian Revolution and Social Media – powerful message. Watch the vid on this one.
Janet Kennedy – Westward Ho!
Corinne Taylor – Voluntouring 101: Rules for Success
Corinne takes my Best in Shoe prize. These shoes are killer!
Tennessee (2 pics up in teal sweater) won for this lap-folded origami lily. Impressive. Good challenge, Terre.
Greg Kay – Mastering the Warm Call – awesomely practical advice. Watch and learn.
Jodi Sonoda – Overnight Rockstar: Social Media Style
Sarina Bruni – My Big Fat Italian Family! – having grown up around lots of Italian families in the Point, Sarina’s talk made me smile. Well done. Great message.
Jacki Yovanoff – My Daughter’s 7th Birthday
Jacqui Murphy – Why Art? – Jac rocks it like a pro…
and injects some local art like this James Nye piece. Speaking of James, you can see/buy his work at the BOX11 Art Show & Sale, just 15 days away at the Rumpel Felt factory on Victoria. Nov 12/13. If we can just agree that 4000 of you are definitely coming to BOX11 then I’ll stop talking about it (for this year).
Frank Reid – Nothing Says Peacekeeping Like a Blue Beret
Bastow! Almost convincing me to buy a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8.
Our hosts… yes, I have name gap on Mr. Right Hand Side (update: this is Stephen Heron — thanks David). Please chime in, readers.
BTW, good Firkin Burger tonight for dinner.
