A (Portlander’s) profile a day, that’s all we ask

Portland-based Open-Source guru, BarCamp champion, and Legion of Tech‘er, Raven Zachary, has started the new year off on the right foot by launching Portland on Fire, a new site designed to profile one member of the Portland community each day.

Why? I’m glad you asked. (And I’m glad Raven provided an FAQ for this one.)

Current online social networks are ineffective channels to meet new people. This site will help to facilitate networking. I was working on a project in the late 90’s called ‘Great Minds’ – a global profile site of amazing people. This is an implementation of that idea focused around the amazing people in the Portland, Oregon, area.

For more information, visit Portland on Fire or see additional coverage of the effort in VanPortlander. To participate, prepare and submit your profile. Or, if you’re just looking forward to reading about some interesting folks, grab the Portland on Fire RSS feed or follow @portlandonfire on Twitter.

I’m looking forward to reading more about you one of these days.
