InnoTech 2010 is Happening Thursday [Free Tickets]

Innotech is an annual technology conference that takes place here in Portland, Oregon.  It’s not the biggest tech conference on the west coast, but it’s a good event for Portland and I do look forward to it each Spring.

Last year, the Innotech organizers put together a few mobile-focused events.  This year, I’ll be leading a session as a part of the “Mobility” Track.  My session is called Mobile Lightning Talks and it will feature the most interesting mobile firms in Portland. I’ll give each firm 6 minutes to present their company and demo their app or service.  Mobile Lightning Talks takes place at 2:00PM on Thursday, 6 May.

So far, here’s the lineup for the talks:

As an added bonus, I’ll be featuring a competition at the end of the talks.  By audience applause, the favorite mobile company will have a $100 donation made in their name to FreeGeek, a local Portland charity.
