Ignition’s Cameron Myhrvold Joins the Lineup for Mobile Madness NW Dec. 6

10/26/11Follow @curtwoodward

We’re adding another name to the already power-packed list of speakers for Mobile Madness Northwest on Dec. 6: Cameron Myhrvold, founding partner at Ignition Partners. And speaking of Mobile Madness, you’ll want to buy your tickets now to get the best deal—the best rate expires today.

Cameron knows his way around innovation in the Northwest and beyond: After a long stint at Microsoft, where he created the developer relations group and worked with big telecoms, Cameron moved into the venture capital world with Ignition. And though he’s well known for investments in infrastructure and software, Cameron also serves on the board of Redmond, WA’s Wild Tangent.

All of those perspectives will come in handy as he helps us moderate a discussion on how mobile is transforming gaming. In case you missed the full guest list the first time around, he’ll be talking with Giordano Contestabile from PopCap Games, David Bluhm from Z2Live, and Bernie Yee from Bungie Aerospace.

And that’s just one panel—we’ve got more discussions with entrepreneurs and innovators lined up, presentations from interesting startups, and plenty of networking and mingling time to boot.

Get your tickets here for the best rate—and don’t miss the startup and student specials. We’re teaming up with with the Washington Technology Industry Association for this half-day forum, which will run from afternoon to evening on Dec. 6 at F5 Networks in Seattle.
