Just heard some potentially squee-worthy news. Much like Joe Stump, Ryan Carson, Simple, and Puppet Labs—and any number of talented tech types before him—Tom Dale has decided to move to Portland. It’s a bit of a coup for our open source and startup scenes—and a huge credit to the amazing city that is Portland.
In Portland, my mortgage payment will be the same price as the rent I pay in San Francisco. The only difference is that, instead of sharing a small house with two other dudes, I can have a larger house to myself. Portland offers all of the great restaurants, coffee shops and bars that I love about SF, without having to overhear conversations about Series A rounds or monetization strategies.
And I’m looking forward to whatever small part I can play in helping Portland’s burgeoning tech scene. I’m excited to be neighbors with the likes of Panic, Sprint.ly and Simple.
Oh here. Let me let the Tilde bio tell it:
Pretty cool, right? Yes indeedy.
If there’s anything we can do to make your landing a little softer, Tom, please don’t hesitate to ask. And welcome to Portland!
