Mike Rogoway of The Oregonian shares this week’s installment of the positive things happening in the Silicon Forest.
Geoff K writes “I wanted to give some major props to KGW, Stephanie Stricklen and her producer Aaron. In over 15 years of living in Portland I’ve never seen a program so devoted to connecting and covering the community. Also, given the fact that many local magazine shows are ‘Pay for Play’ now you are an extremely welcome breath of fresh air in an otherwise stuffy market space. I look forward to watching 7 @ The Square online every night and with the open mics and cameras during commercials you make us all feel a part of the show.”
Via the JanRain blog “Today JanRain is announcing support for MySpaceID in RPX. We worked closely with the MySpace product team to integrate their MySpaceID open platform in RPX. Now website operators that use RPX can easily register and sign in MySpace users at their site and bring their profile data including friends and interests to create an instant social community.”
Geoff K writes “Time Magazine named Field Runners as it’s #9 pick on their Top 10 games of 2008. This list includes ALL games on all platforms and so it was pretty amazing to see an iPhone game make this list (especially one which has only been on the market for a couple of months.)”
Brian Westbrook writes “For those recently unemployed — my condolences… I’ve been there. After your week of decompression and relaxation, I’d like to offer some tips for finding that next job (even if you’re not subject to a layoff)….”
Via the Beer and Blog, um, blog “Keep in mind that Beer and Blog will start at 5:30pm, a little later that usual, to coincide with the start of the WordPress 2.7 release party. And while there’s bound to be a couple of us at our regular haunt at the Green Dragon waiting until it’s time to party at CubeSpace, the extra time will give you extra time to grab some brews. It’s BYOB, baby!”
