Ignite Seattle 6

I want to go to there. I reeeeally want to try and check out Ignite Seattle 6 on Wednesday night. Especially to see Beth Goza's piece on knitting with code (yes, 1s and 0s code).

"Ignite Seattle is a geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking). Videos and photos from the previous Ignite are available. Admission is free." Um, perfect!
