Well, well, well, it’s Thursday. And that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX. But this time? It’s even wackier than usual.
You see, sometimes in the world of trying to cover tech stories, you get some information early. Under embargo. And sometimes that information changes. Or the date changes. Or snow storms happen back east. And that means we have to edit the show. And by “edit” we mean “quickly hack out.” So you may notice the show is a little choppy in spots. But it’s still really good. I promise. Read More
Hey! It’s the first Thursday of 2010. And whether you call it “two thousand ten” or “twenty ten,” you deserve a new episode of memePDX. Guess what? You’re in luck. We recorded one. Just for you.

And then we get a little beggy and whiny about iTunes reviews for memePDX. But in a good way. Really. Read More
[HTML3]Howdy. Rick, here. I don’t usually do many “introspective” posts. But this seemed warranted. (Although, I’ve been hesitating to post this, because I keep thinking that Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal are going to realize the error of their ways. But given that they still haven’t said, “We were just joking,” I’m going to have to go ahead and run with this.)
In case you didn’t get the chance to tune into my appearance on Strange Love Live’s year end recap, I wanted to let you know that we had a couple of announcements. Read More
Last Friday, I had the pleasure—for the fourth time—of sitting on the couch at Strange Love Live as Cami Kaos, Dr. Normal, and I talked through the year that was. It was one of tremendous highs and extreme lows. I think I may have even called the ebb and flow of 2009 “manic depressive.”
And as I kept babbling, struggling for a way to describe 2009, Cami stopped me. And then summarized the whole thing, quite simply, as a “rollercoaster.” Which is a perfect summary. Because that’s exactly what 2009 was for the Portland startup scene. A rollercoaster. Read More
Yesterday, we took a little time to reminisce and look back at 2009 in the Silicon Florist. It was an interesting year of highs and lows, startups and shutdowns, big happenings and small changes.
And while I’m very excited to get the chance to spend time with Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal on Strange Love Live tomorrow—as we work on putting a big fat bow on our 2009 wrap-up—I’m also looking forward to seeing what all of you are capable of doing in 2010.
But one thing escapes me. I have no idea what you think will happen next year. So let’s fix that, shall we? Read More
Anyone who has spent any time around Silicon Florist realizes that I tend to be a little longwinded. And that’s putting it lightly. Brevity? Not my strong suit. And for many, reading through my lengthy posts isn’t the preferred way of getting their tech news.
So, I’ve been thinking about ways to get you more of the news you want with less effort on your part. And a different form of media seemed to be the best way to do it. So I begged started talking to the Strange Love Live folks and after a series of tantrums and crying fits on my part discussions, they finally agreed to help.
The result? memePDX. Read More
