Portlanders tend to have a little trouble tooting their own horns. Or hyping what’s happening. Which is fine. It gives me something to do in my spare time. But it’s also nice to see other people doing it for us. Especially when it’s an entity like Businessweek.
Silicon Valley’s hypergrowth is no secret, but how about Oregon’s Silicon Forest? Business is humming in these metropolitan areas with more than 1 million residents.
Apparently, our GDP growth rate is outpacing our population growth. And that’s always a good thing.

I’ve always thought it should be the “Silicon Rainforest”, especially with today’s weather.
This is now the Portland startup anthem.
Oh, not tonight! I gotta go to bed.
Forever’s gonna start tonight
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
Woo hoo! Let’s toot our horns and do so LOUDLY! Now is the time to strike in terms of leveraging this as a true catalyst to transform our tech ecosystem and economy to the next level. Now is also the time to drive greatly exceeding #STEM 2025 goals such that we are not talent starved.
Would Portland’s first-place position be what they refer to as a total eclipse of the chart?
