memePDX: Portland tech news for those short on time and/or attention
Anyone who has spent any time around Silicon Florist realizes that I tend to be a little longwinded. And that’s putting it lightly. Brevity? Not my strong suit. And for many, reading through my lengthy posts isn’t the preferred way of getting their tech news.
So, I’ve been thinking about ways to get you more of the news you want with less effort on your part. And a different form of media seemed to be the best way to do it. So I begged started talking to the Strange Love Live folks and after a series of tantrums and crying fits on my part discussions, they finally agreed to help.
The result? memePDX.
memePDX will be a quick (less than 30 minutes) video and audio podcast that we’ll record and run on a weekly basis. The focus will be local tech and startup stories—strange, I realize—and a smattering of larger national and international tech stories. It will be hosted by Cami Kaos of Strange Love Live and me. And it will be produced by Dr. Normal of Strange Love Live.
That’s about all we know. It may or may not have guests. It may or may not be broadcast live. It may be worth your time. It may not.
Long story short, it’s the Silicon Florist podcast, only better.
But a picture is worth a thousand words and whatnot. So here’s the first, albeit rough, episode. It would be awesome if you’d take a few minutes to watch and leave some feedback.
