Ignite Portland 5 was great. Truly Portland’s own TED. It appears all the talks are available online:

Blip TV channel

Embedded above is Chris Sullivan’s talk on HAM radio. I also highly recommend:

Russell Senior – Why Publicly Owned Fiber is the Answer to our Broadband Needs (political, not technical)

Tara Horn – How to be a Refugee: Several not-so-easy steps from oppression to resettlement (poignant)

John Metta – How to creatively destroy pesky, non-moneymaking community efforts (funny)
