memePDX 004:, Microsoft sponsors WordCamp, Kanye, One Web Day, Simler, Events, and Facebook, Facebook, Facebook

It’s another Thursday, and that means it’s time for another memePDX, the weekly wrap up of the hottest tech stories from Portland… and beyond.

Yet again, we got a little too chatty. So it’s running a little long. Like about 30 minutes. But in our defense there was a ton of news. And both Cami Kaos and I were tired and a tad punchy.

But trust me, there’s a bunch of good stuff. Like what?, Microsoft sponsoring WordCamp, Kanye, One Web Day, Simler, and a whole heck of a lot of Facebook news.

And of course, some conspiracy theory about whether the woman in the Apple 1984 commercial is wearing an iPod.

Have a watch.

Or have a listen.

    Nice! Again, I’d somehow missed some of this stuff. I’d prefer a little shorter episodes (I know you’re trying!), but only if you can do it without losing the fun you both bring to the show.

  2. Rick Turoczy says:

    Thanks, Adam! What do you think about the mix? Is repeating the local stuff I’ve already covered overkill? Should we focus on more national/international and the local impact?

    Just looking to see how we can cut some time out of it. ;)

    (Those questions go for all the rest of you, too.)

  3. AdamD says:

    I think you’ve got to stick to the local stuff, even if you’ve covered it in a full post. I’d axe the national/international stuff unless there’s a really clear local angle (i.e., the Omniture acquisition).

  4. Sabrina says:

    FWIW I agree with Adam. It’s the national/international stuff that gets to be overkill out there and with so many great things going on locally it seems like there’s more than enough material here at home.

    you guys are entertaining, but in my opinion not quite entertaining enough to spend so much time off topic. your signal to noise ration is a bit askew.

    I’d love it if you spent 20 minutes outlining a five minute presentation that was tight and cogent instead of 26 minutes of whatever comes to mind. You don’t have to be total talking heads but if you limited the number of times that you were saying “I don’t know where I’m going with this” on camera you would step away from the public access style “let’s just get up here and fill time” and more towards interesting content.

    You guys have talent. Just tighten it up.

    I notice a ton of guys doing this kind of thing on podcasts/vodcasts. It is ok if I am just going to be listening casually, but if I am going to set aside 30mins, it would be nice to have a little more form.

    Good stuff guys.
