Software Association of Oregon adds familiar faces, Twitter

Software Association of Oregon - SAOThe Software Association of Oregon has recently announced a new Board of Directors. And I’m happy to report that those new Board members include a number of familiar faces from companies that have graced the pages of the Silicon Florist.

“Who?” you ask?

Well, hold your horses and I’ll tell you:

Congratulations to the SAO and all of the new Board members. It’s nice to see some of the Web startups here in town getting a seat at the table.

Not only that, it’s a good direction for the SAO to be moving to ensure that they remain relevant with all of the various “tech community”s in town.

In other news, the SAO now has a Twitter presence. Coincidence? Yeah, probably. But interesting anyway.

  1. Thanks for the shout, Rick!

  2. I think there is one glaring omission on this list…Rick Tuzcryzxy from Slicon Florist!

  3. Thx for the mention Rick – very cool of you. SAO is back on track and making some huge strides in ’09. It’s one of the only associations in Oregon that offers healthcare for 1-person companies and the SAO Board is more engaged in the software community than we’ve ever been before.
