Tag: 30 hour day

Five years ago, Portland's startup scene was approaching the end of a very long and incredibly rewarding day

Every year, as the holidays roll around, I am reminded of a time when we—as a scrappy startup scene—all pulled together as a group to do something amazing. It was truly a first. And it was a fortifying moment for what the Portland startup scene and its friends could accomplish when we put our minds—and hearts—to it. This year, it’s the five year anniversary of that event. It was called 30 Hour Day. Read More

30 Hour Day: Give and take

We created 30 Hour Day for two reasons: to give back to the community and to allow the anyone to take our content and use it as they see fit. A little give, a little take.

So it would probably help if we told you how to do that, wouldn’t it? Of course it would.

30 Hour Day: Why it’s been a little quiet around these parts this week

Has the Portland startup tech news slowed to halt? Have folks taken the week off in preparation for Independence Day? Has everyone been heads down working on their next amazing project?

To answer those in order: No, not by the looks of my inbox. No, not from what I see. And to some extent yes. You see, this weekend, we’ll be holding the next 30 Hour Day. And that has had my usual blogging time all eaten up with other activities.

Strange Love Live at 30 hour day: Wherein I do my best Ed McMahon or Andy Richter imitation

Strange Love Live from 30 hour day featuring a bevy of guests like Target for Tomorrow and the Horns of Destruction, Marie Deatherage, Beth Kanter, Amy Sample Ward, Renny Gleeson, Courtenay Hameister, and Scott McCarty.

It seems a bit self-serving that the first two episodes of Strange Love Live posted to Silicon Florist this year just so happen to have me in them. But that’s purely unintentional. It’s just how things work sometimes. And I promise the next one I post won’t have anything to do with me. Maybe. But it will definitely have something to do with Brian M. Westbrook.

In any case. For now, take a moment to revel in the Strange Love Live we recorded at 30 hour day—featuring a bevy of guests like Target for Tomorrow and the Horns of Destruction, Marie Deatherage, Beth Kanter, Amy Sample Ward, Renny Gleeson, Courtenay Hameister, and Scott McCarty. Read More

Joining Strange Love Live Productions and announcing we’ll be doing 30 hour day all over again

Rick Turoczy joins Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal as a producer and partner for Strange Love Live Productions. And we announce the dates for the next 30 hour day, July 2 and 3.

[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
