Blogs/News about the event:

First notes from Willamette Innovators Night - Mike McInally
However, the show was stolen by presentations from Loyan Roylance of ProWorks, who spoke on the topic of “What Social Media Has Taught Me About Sex” (which I choose here not to excerpt in any way), and Aaron Hockley, a Portland photographer who spoke on his passion: Loving photographs of trains, or as he put it, “train porn.”

Love the tweets about and during the event:
