For what it's worth a friend of mine just talked me into signing up for an event called The Naked Truth on July 24th. Here's what the wiki says:
The Naked Truth is a meet-up for entrepreneurs, journalists, and bloggers to talk about how we tell our stories.
There's a panel discussion that's limited to 200 people and an afterparty limited to 500. When I added my name to the list it was up to around 170 for each so hurry and get your name on the list if you're interested.
Also, the next Ignite Seattle event is happening on August 8th. I'm hoping to make it but we'll have to wait and see.
