There’s a lot to like about the Portland Maker community. And a lot that reminds me of the Portland startup community ten years ago. Amazing people. Awesome creativity. And some really really interesting projects. That’s why it’s been an honor to get to participate in PDX Maker Week to celebrate that awesomeness.
But you know what would be even more awesome? If we could get the Portland startup community and Portland Maker community together. To meet one another. And to break down some of those silos that separate us.
So if you’ve got some time Tuesday evening, maybe you could come celebrate PDX Maker Week, too…?
Join PDX Maker Week folks, members of the startup community, and other awesome people for a gathering at Portland’s favorite tech happy hour spot, the Green Dragon. We’re not buying you drinks. But we guarantee you’ll meet some awesome folks. Or, worst case, Rick Turoczy. In which case, you’ll probably need a drink. Free or not.
Heck. I may even bring some Silicon Florist stickers for folks. Those, I can guarantee, will definitely be free.
