memePDX 024: Urban Airship pushes 100 million, [REDACTED], Startup Weekend Portland, City of Portland iPhone app, Google Buzz, Flash and HTML5 debate
Well, well, well, it’s Thursday. And that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX. But this time? It’s even wackier than usual.
You see, sometimes in the world of trying to cover tech stories, you get some information early. Under embargo. And sometimes that information changes. Or the date changes. Or snow storms happen back east. And that means we have to edit the show. And by “edit” we mean “quickly hack out.” So you may notice the show is a little choppy in spots. But it’s still really good. I promise.
This week, Cami Kaos and I cover Urban Airship hitting 100 million push notifications, that story we had to chop out, Startup Weekend Portland, City of Portland’s new iPhone app, Google Buzz, and the debate about Flash and HTML5 on mobile.
So let’s get to it. And see if you can identify the spots where we had to chop stuff out. (Don’t be sad. You’ll get the lost scenes once the news actually drops. Really.)
Want to subject yourself to this torture on a regular basis subscribe to this podcast? Get the video feed or the iTunes feed for the video of memePDX. We’re also on Vimeo, because of the whole Portland connection. And of course, if you’re interested in staying in touch, you can always follow memePDX on Twitter. Or you can become a fan of memePDX on Facebook.
(NOTE: For those audiophiles, iTunes finally booted the broken memePDX audio podcast out of the store. And that’s good news. Because now we can fix it. Stay tuned.)
