memePDX 024: Urban Airship pushes 100 million, [REDACTED], Startup Weekend Portland, City of Portland iPhone app, Google Buzz, Flash and HTML5 debate

This week, Cami and I cover Urban Airship push notifications, Startup Weekend Portland, City of Portland’s new iPhone app, Google Buzz, and Flash and HTML5.

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.

So rather than pretend we were paying attention to other stuff, we decided to just focus memePDX into an all Apple iPad episode.

Hey there, Portland tech types! It’s another Thursday, and that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX.

Now, I’m sure there was probably some other tech news that happened this week. But, let’s be honest. We were a little wrapped up in the whole Apple announcement thing. Obsessed some might call it.
