Fail blogging: 27 Portland startup topics I should have covered in 2012
Honestly, I got into this whole blogging thing with the best intentions. I swear. But sometimes, the little side project that is Silicon Florist takes a back seat to other efforts. And some stories fall by the wayside. But that doesn’t mean that they’re any less important.
So, as chagrin as I am to admit it, a few things either got by me or sat there without getting written in 2012. Mea culpa.
But the very least I can do—and I do mean “the very least”—is mention a few of them. So here we go. Here are some of the stories that should have graced the pages of Silicon Florist, last year. But didn’t. Through no one’s fault but my own.
Just imagine the following with really long headlines and poorly written posts:
- Cisco acquires ClearAccess
- Janrain acquires ClickPass
- Perceptive Pixel acquired by Microsoft
- Second Story acquired by SapientNitro
- SEOmoz acquires Followerwonk
- Cascadia Games‘s growing game portfolio
- Cloudability launches out of private beta, available to all users
- The Digits
- Engine Yard‘s Portland presence
- From the makers of TouchPets: Little Chomp
- Night & Day Studios partners with ScrollMotion
- OEN Angel Oregon applications open for 2013
- INDUSTRY’s ORA iPad speakers
- PivotPlanet‘s launch
- Portland Pick
- Ride with GPS
- Showbacker working to bring Radiohead to Portland
- Small World News TV
- Sprintly 1.0 released
But wait. There’s more! Or something. I’ve got a few others that are currently half-written. So as the new year gets underway, I’ll work to complete those posts and get them, um, posted.
