Strange Love Live predictions, prognostications, and postulations: What do you think 2010 holds for the Portland startup scene?

Spend time with Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal on Strange Love Live tomorrow—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.

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

In depth discussions about Portland, podcasting, and the death of traditional media? That’s Crazy Talk

Introducing Crazy Talk a new podcast from Dr. Normal that brings the backroom conversations of the Portland Oregon tech community to the forefront.

Here in the Portland blogging, startup, and open source community, we get into a bunch of conversations. Conversations about the future. Conversations about how to make a living doing what we love. Conversations about what we could do to make things better.

But so many of these conversations are lost in the ether or wedged into the gray matter of the few people who were involved in the conversation. Until now.

Strange Love Live recaps 2008 and looks toward 2009

Strange Love LiveI had the honor of joining the Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal on Strange Love Live for a recap of 2008 and a look forward to 2009.

Well, not “joining” exactly. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to actually attend in person, thanks to the Portland arctic blast, snowpocalypse, and resulting thawnami.

But it’s probably just as well, given that I was all prepared to show up in my “incoming 2009” outfit—a sash and not much else. So thanks to Aaron Hockley for allowing me to appear more respectable.

Cami and Dr. Normal altered the usual format giving us the opportunity to talk for a good 90 minutes—and that led to some pretty interesting discussions including the top events on 2008, Vidoop, Shizzow, Bacon Geek, Beer and Blog, KGW’s The Square with Stephanie Stricklen and Aaron Weiss, Twitter, Rael Dornfest, pdxtst, Our PDX, Neighborhood Notes, OpenID, calling Facebook Connect the Hotmail of this generation… even indulging in some conspiracy theory and what’s to be in 2009.

Here’s us chatting about the 2008 recap:

And here’s our discussion of the potential future for 2009:

Or, if you just want to listen to the whole shooting match, have at it:

Thanks, yet again, to Cami and the good Doctor for allowing me to appear on the show. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Strange Love Live is the best podcast in the Portland. And one prediction for 2009 that’s sure to come true? You ain’t seen nothing yet as far as Strange Love Live goes.

And hopefully, we’ll see the same thing for any number of people in our area. I’m really interested to see what Portland and the Silicon Forest will do in 2009.

And of course, I’m truly looking forward to watching—and covering—that of which you’re capable of in 2009.

One night only: ReadWriteWeb’s Marshall Kirkpatrick on Strange Love Live

It’s Friday. It’s kind of chilly outside. You’re looking for something to do. Why not spend some time by the warm glow of your monitor learning some interesting stuff from some interesting people?

That’s why there’s Strange Love Live, the weekly podcast hosted by Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal. Dare I say, “the best podcast in Portland”? Indeed, I dare.

What’s that? You haven’t seen Strange Love Live? Are you kidding me?

They’ve got a guest list that boasts a veritable who’s who of the Portland tech scene—Nate Angell, Josh Bancroft, Bram Pitoyo & Amber Case, Aaron Hockley, Scott Kveton, Don Park, Chris O’Rourke, Craig Schwartz, the Shizzow team, and many, many more. And while the podcast is always well worth the listen, there’s nothing quite like watching the show live.

And tonight would be a great night to tune in, because the special guest is none other than Marshall Kirkpatrick, the Emperor of RSS, VP of Content Development at ReadWriteWeb, and just all around nice guy.

The show starts at 10-ish on Friday nights.

And I’ll look forward to seeing you in the chat room, tonight.
