Thinking out loud about the Portland startup community

I recently had the opportunity to appear on OPB for Think Out Loud. I’m always pleasantly surprised when I don’t put people to sleep while babbling about the Portland startup community. Not only did the host stay awake, but several listeners did, as well. Several.

Talking startups with Portland Radio Project

One of the things I love about Portland is that—in addition to all of the amazing startups—there are startups who work to help other startups. Sometimes they’re providing training. Sometimes they’re accelerators. And sometimes they’re content creators. Like the Portland Radio Project.

Need a new podcast? Check out New School VR

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of what’s happening in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality in Portland. It seems to be the perfect mixture of Portland curiosity, creativity, and coding. The only thing holding it back at this point is more folks covering the space. That’s why I’m happy to see the New School VR podcast becoming, ahem, a reality. Read More

Portland public podcasting posts up in an Airstream: Stream PDX

Portland has long been home to any number of interesting podcasts. With new shows cropping up all of the time. But even today, the intricacies of podcasting can still be cryptic and intimidating. (Sorry Adam Curry, it’s true.) That’s why it’s always nice to see projects that look to eliminate those barriers and get more voices—literally—on the air. Meet Stream PDX. Read More

What investors want startups to know: A conversation with Corey Schmid of Seven Peaks Ventures

It’s no secret that there’s a limited number of investors in Oregon. Which means there’s not a lot of crossover between the startup investment community—unless folks are raising. But there aren’t a lot of conversations, information sharing, or mutual understanding. It’s often just checks—or lack thereof. That’s why it’s always nice to hear from the investors, firsthand, about their world and what sort of things they’re looking for. Read More

Confused about encryption? Ken Westin can help

One of the things I most love about Portland is that we’ve got more unassuming expertise per capita than any town on earth. Tons of super talented people. But you’d never know it. Because they keep a low profile. So whenever one of them raises that profile a bit? I’m going to celebrate that. Like when Ken Westin decides to start a podcast on encryption. Read More

California Technology Council shines a spotlight on the Portland startup scene

While we realize all of the awesome stuff that is happening here in town, it’s always nice to see the Portland startup scene getting recognition from outside our region. Join the California Technology Council as they chat with Skip Newberry of the Technology Association of Oregon, Mat Ellis of Cloudability, and Malia Spencer of the Portland Business Journal.

Don't just read all of the stupid things I say about Portland startups, listen to them

No. I didn’t start another podcast. But for reasons beyond my comprehension, I get asked to talk about Portland and startups. A lot. And it just happened again. Twice. And since the topic of conversation is based on you and your startuppy awesomeness, I thought you might like to know. So, if you’ve got a few minutes, tune into these podcasts from Partially Derivative and Launch Yourself. Read More

I'm not dead yet: Cort and Fatboy return to podcasting with That Whole Thing

Sometimes, people choose to walk away from something at which they are exceptionally gifted. Such was the case, last year, when popular Portland podcasters Cort Webber and Bobby “Fatboy” Roberts put nearly a decade of day-in-day-out work to rest with cortandfatboy is dead. Read More
