UPDATED: Announcing the Ignite Portland 9 Talks

UPDATE: Sadly, we had a couple of selected speakers have to bow out due to various issues, so we’ve added some new talks to take their place!

UPDATE 2: Double sadly, one of our speakers, Max Ogden, was in a bike accident earlier this week. He’s OK, but he won’t be able to present tonight. We look forward to seeing his talk on The Civic Web at a future Ignite Portland!

After 65 idea submissions, and long, hard toil to narrow the field down to the talks we can fit on stage, we’re proud to present you with the amazing talks that will be burning your mind at Ignite Portland 9 on September 23, 2010 (in no particular order):

We want to extend a big thanks to all of you who took the risk of sharing your burning talk ideas with us, especially to those of you whose talk idea didn’t make it this time. Don’t be discouraged! Competition is fierce, and time is short. We’d love it if you submit your talk idea next time!

We hope you’re as excited as we are about the lineup – it’s going to be a great night!
