There was plenty to digest during Day 1 of the fifth annual GeekWire Summit in Seattle on Tuesday. Top CEOs, leading venture capitalists, young entrepreneurs, tech journalists, and interesting inventors wowed the crowd with their insight and humor about everything from architecture to travel to cancer to pro football.

We’ve rounded up some of the best of what we heard and tweeted. And we look forward to getting an earful again on Day 2.
