Cami and Dr. Normal altered the usual format giving us the opportunity to talk for a good 90 minutes—and that led to some pretty interesting discussions including the top events on 2008, Vidoop, Shizzow, Bacon Geek, Beer and Blog, KGW’s The Square with Stephanie Stricklen and Aaron Weiss, Twitter, Rael Dornfest, pdxtst, Our PDX, Neighborhood Notes, OpenID, calling Facebook Connect the Hotmail of this generation… even indulging in some conspiracy theory and what’s to be in 2009.
Here’s us chatting about the 2008 recap:
And here’s our discussion of the potential future for 2009:
Or, if you just want to listen to the whole shooting match, have at it:
Thanks, yet again, to Cami and the good Doctor for allowing me to appear on the show. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Strange Love Live is the best podcast in the Portland. And one prediction for 2009 that’s sure to come true? You ain’t seen nothing yet as far as Strange Love Live goes.
And hopefully, we’ll see the same thing for any number of people in our area. I’m really interested to see what Portland and the Silicon Forest will do in 2009.
And of course, I’m truly looking forward to watching—and covering—that of which you’re capable of in 2009.
I know, I know. You’ve all been girding up for your Boxing Day celebrations. Braving the weather and the treacherous conditions to make sure that everything is just so on December 26th. So when you’re done with the hectic Boxing Day goings-on, why not take a load off and reward yourself?
How, you ask? With Strange Love Live, silly.
At 10 PM, December 26th, Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal have been kind enough to welcome me into their studio, yet again, to discuss the Silicon Forest tech scene. What happened in 2008 and—more importantly—what’s going to happen in 2009.
And if that’s not exciting enough, then try this: Strange Love Live is now on Mogulus, which means more quality audio and video for you. Win win win.
So now, you can enjoy the holidays, knowing full well that at 10 PM on December 26th, you’re going to be able to get your Strange Love Live fix.
Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.
And don’t forget, if you—yes, YOU!—want to be part of the Strange Love Live show, make sure to proffer your predilection for prognostication by submitting your predictions for the Silicon Forest tech scene in 2009. We’ll be discussing the best submissions during the show.
Rest assured, I’ll be doing everything in my power to ford the snowpocalypse or thawnami to make it to the studio.
Emergency Tweetup for Blood Donations at American Red Cross (Wednesday December 24, 2008) – Upcoming
So, it’s getting to be about that time. You know. End of the year. Time to start thinking about next year. ‘Tis the season of recaps and predictions.
I’m working on a little “Predictions for Portland 2009″project with a couple of other folks. Of course, the entire Silicon Forest is fair game, too. I just couldn’t stand breaking up that alliteration with factual information.
Given that you’ve got some insight and ideas in this regard, I wanted to invite you to contribute your two cents. You do know what’s going to happen, don’t you?
Well okay then.
All you have to do is comment below with your predictions for the Silicon Forest tech scene next year. Are things going to be dire? Are they going to improve? Who will be the shining stars? Who will rise from the ashes? Who will be the new new media darlings in the coming year?
Easy as that. I might need to follow up with you on your contribution to the discussion.
No concept is too wacky. So have at it.
I eagerly await your powers of prognostication.
