Aug 20/Ignite! in Seattle

OK, this (from Fremont Universe) looks like a LOT of fun:

Ignite Seattle and Dorkbot Seattle are collaborating with Fremont Outdoor Movies to bring you a new kind of festival.
On the afternoon of Saturday, August 20th, Ignite Seattle is opening up the Fremont Outdoor Movie Cinema parking lot (N. 35th St. & Phinney Ave) for builders, garage hackers, diy makers and the generally curious. Everyone is encouraged to bring an interesting project to share or something to show off.
There are a few caveats to follow if you’re planning on showing up with a cool gadget or concept. The folks there have a limited amount of power, so they can’t promise electricity for everyone. And if you’re bringing something dangerous (which is totally cool), let them know, so they can make sure the appropriate signage gets posted.
After ThingOut! comes Ignite Seattle and some of the speakers already scheduled include a one-armed juggler/inspirational speaker, a letterpress expert, a hula-hopping expert and a ton more.
Admission is $5.00 at the door and all ages are welcome. The ThingOut Festival begins at 5pm while Ignite Seattle opens its doors at 7pm and talks begin at 8pm. For more information, check out the Ignite Seattle site.
This looks like a great cheap date. Will we see you there?
