It was so nice to your faces, Seattle.
The GeekWire Awards returned as an in-person event for the first time in three years on Thursday night, and the Pacific Northwest tech community was smiling from ear to ear at the chance to reconnect.
At Showbox SoDo, techies from across the region worked out the networking kinks, raised a glass and celebrated the achievements of more than 60 finalists and honorees across 15 categories.
“You’re our guest, you’re our guest, after two years of arrest, we’re in person that is certain,” sang Robert McPherson, the Seattle Opera’s “Drunken Tenor,” as he opened the show with a rousing recollection of remote work and more.
