Trending: Bill Gates’ TerraPower and GE Hitachi team up on proposal to build a new nuclear reactor for research


It’s almost show time!  We’re getting ready to kick off the GeekWire Awards, with more than 750 attendees joining us here at the EMP Museum in Seattle to celebrate the top startups, technologies and hardest-working geeks in the Pacific Northwest.


We had to close off registration this week when we reached capacity, and we know many of you weren’t able to make it in, so as a special surprise we’re pleased to present this live stream from the main stage, courtesy of the team at Seattle’s Bootstrapper Studios.

The event kicks off at 6:45 p.m. with opening remarks and a keynote address by Chris DeVore, followed by the presentation of awards in 14 categories.
