GadgetTrak recognized at International CTIA WIRELESS 2011 Emerging Tech Awards

While it’s always great to recognize what startups are doing in Portland, it’s much nicer when those local startups are recognized by people outside the area. And there’s no better place than major tradeshows. Like the CTIA show, for example.

Local startup ActiveTrak walked away from the show with a CTIA WIRELESS 2011 Emerging Tech Award for GadgetTrak, placing third in the “Productivity, Utility and Public Safety” category. A notable achievement indeed, especially considering the world stage. Read More

OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards get downright webby for 2009

Usually when it comes to entrepreneurial awards in the Silicon Forest, I do my best to cheer for the Web, open source, and mobile startups who receive nominations. And then I usually wind up crying in my beer when the awards are handed to apparel and biotech startups.

But not this year, my friend. Oh no. This time around the OEN Tom Holce Entrepreneurship Awards recognized three Web types with awards: Ray King of AboutUs, Jama Software, and Monsoon. All Portland-based, respectively. Read More

Watching the Emmys? Portland Drupal developers will be

Yes, yes. Everyone’s all excited about Portland playing host to Leverage—well, okay, not everyone but you know what I mean. And, as such, there’s all of this talk about PDX becoming little Hollywood or Trolleywood or Hippiewood or whatever.

But that’s just one small segment of the Hollywood experience. Anyone who knows Hollywood knows that the real pomp and circumstance takes place on the venerable red carpet. That’s right, my friend. Awards shows. That’s where it’s at.

And guess what? Portland’s got a part of that, too. No, I’m serious. Portland-based Metal Toad Media is the magic behind emmys.com. Read More

Every tweet counts: Vote for WebVisions Webvisionary People’s Choice Award

Tonight, WebVisions will hold its second Webvisionary Awards, but there’s still some work to do before that takes place: voting for the People’s Choice Award. Or I guess, more appropriately, tweeting for the People’s Choice.

Tweeting? That’s right. All of the votes for the People’s Choice will be cast via Twitter, the popular microblogging platform. Each entry has a short code. Just send a direct message—that’s a d not an @—to @wv09 with that short code and your vote will be counted.

Sad you’re not attending WebVisions? You can still get into the Webvisionary Awards—because it’s open to the public.

So who needs your votes? Read More
