I would love to hear more about your startup. Literally.

I’ve been looking for an excuse to user Twitter Spaces, the audio only Clubhouse competitor. And an idea dawned on my that was basically an audio version of Silicon Florist. What if I held a Spaces event where founders got to pitch their startup or startup concept to an audience?

Back in the early days of Twitter, Portland was often one of the more prominent towns on the platform. Getting topics to trend was a regular occurrence. And using the service to spread news and weather was commonplace. Read More

Chirpify lands $1.3 million in funding … and that’s not even the most interesting part of the story

Granted, I’m more than a little slow. But at least this time I have a good reason.

You’ve probably already seen the news that Portland-based startup Chirpify landed $1.3 million in funding. It’s getting great coverage, all over. But I thought I might take a few minutes to dissect it. Because it’s interesting on any number of levels. Read More
