Ignite Boulder last night was good fun. Cool presentations, good people. I got to play with slides, too. I gave a presentation called “Everything I need to know about journalism I learned from ‘Ghost Busters.’” Or “Back off, man, I’m a journalist.”
Some very funny stuff in there, a couple of eco-minded ones, a video game one. The only thing lacking to make it a comprehensive list of my interests would be football and beer.
@userealbutter’s presentation was the most delicious-looking. And she posted a photo of me with a slide, so I’m brazenly stealing it with a link to her wrap-up post and photos of delicious-looking corn.
I think one of my favorite reactions was this: “who knew journalists were this funny about, well, journalism!”
Makes me want to start hosting small salons or readings or something — like the old days, but with less pressure. I also got inspired by reading about the Boulder Fortnightly Club — Boulder’s 125-year-old women’s literary club. Read all about that in Sunday’s Camera, wouldja?
Or enjoy the music video of the moment after the jump.
