Following up to a story published yesterday, Justin Kistner writes “If you haven’t read SiliconFlorist or Voce Nation, then you’re among the last to know that I am joining the Voce Communications team.

Josh Bancroft writes “Yesterday, another one of those cool “perfect storms” of ideas, easy to use web tools and services, and smart, innovative people happened.

Charles Hudson writes “Valuations based on actual market transactions are never ‘wrong’ – they reflect prices at which buyers and sellers were able to get together and get a deal done. Saying that private market valuations for web 2.0 companies are ‘wrong’ is like saying that $4 gasoline is ‘wrong’ – while both prices may be hard to understand or justify, high web 2.0 valuations and high gas prices are both reflect the price at which a seller and a buyer were able to agree and complete a sale.”
Lyza Danger Gardner writes “Mobile Portland will meet on the fourth Monday of each month, location TBD. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 28. We are actively collecting interesting mobile topics for future meetings.”
Vidoop begins to establish their presence in the Rose City. Looking for some co-working space? I’d talk to Mr. Kveton if I were you. Maybe you could show up to Beer and Blog on Friday or Startupalooza on Saturday to buttonhole him.
Bend just hoisted the Ignite flag. Portland stands ready to assist.
