Portland bloggers helping bloggers over beers. What could be more Portland than that?

Bay-area employees have “Lizard Eye”

Portland’s Sam Lawrence, Chief Marketing Officer at Jive Software, compares working in Silicon Valley to working in Portland, to wit: “Having lived and worked in both San Francisco and Portland, and I can tell you that building a company outside the silicon Petri dish has been one of the best experiences of my career.”

  1. Thanks for the pick up, Rick! Hope to see you at Beer and Blog soon.

    Happy to do it. Cool idea! And I’m looking forward to making it to a gathering soon.

  3. That PPP decision is an interesting one. Probably good, but such a complicated question. Thanks for posting about that.

  4. Rick Turoczy says:

    The pay-per-post thing is definitely one of those “slippery slope” issues. But, I can understand not wanting Google to get the wrong idea.

    Just so long as they don’t get so far down the slope that they start judging based on grammar and sentence structure. Then, I’ll be worried.
