Geeks’ night out.

O’Reilly Media (the company I work for) is holding the first Ignite Boston! at Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square on May 31. Ignite Boston is based on the Ignite Seattle events, founded by Brady Forrest (www.igniteseattle.com). The concept behind Ignite is that it’s a place for geeks to drink beer, hang out, MAKE something, and learn from each other.

From 6:00-7:00 PM we’ll be building bridges! Using only 1000 popsicle sticks and a glue gun, can your team engineer the strongest bridge?

After that, author Scott Berkun (The Myths of Innovation; The Art of Project Management) will kick off the event with a keynote talk on…what else…innovation! Following Scott (until about 10:00 PM), other guest speakers will each have five minutes to tell you about some of the cool, new stuff going on in tech today.

So come and mingle with alpha geeks. And if you’re an alpha geek — or just make something really cool — you can submit a proposal here: http://ignitenight.thirdeye.railsplayground.net/events/form/ignite_cambridge
