In just one week, I have achieved the following:
- Made the front page of the Daily Camera.
- Made the front page of the Colorado Daily.
- Performed live at the Boulder Theater.
The cause? Ignite Boulder, a local event that blends slideshow presentations with humor, social value and geek power. I had the honor of being on the planning committee for our 5th outing and pushed myself to make it our finest effort yet. That included amazing local media coverage, a concerted social media push and enough good ideas to make it work.
In all, 741 people packed into the Boulder Theater last night to hear presentations about corn, bacon, and magic. My contribution was a soaring musical opener that set the tone for the rest of the evening: energy, creativity and luck.
I still haven't come down from the high caused by performing for 741 people. I love Boulder and every single person that made it down to the theater for Ignite. I have seldom been in such a good mood.
Now here's a pic of me dressed as an "Igknight of the Round Table," taken only hours ago from the stage:
