In Portland, people are primarily positive about the Apple iPad

I asked some folks from the Portland startup community—who also happen to be proud new iPad owners—to give me their first impressions on this magical new way of computing.

One of the biggest tech stories in Portland—or anywhere for that matter—this week has been the launch of the Apple iPad, a new “magical” device that—when announced—was purported to change the way we compute, work, and play.

But now that the iPad is actually in owners’ hands, how are people feeling about it? I asked some folks from the Portland startup community—who also happen to be proud new iPad owners—to give me their first impressions on this magical new way of computing. Read More

Strange Love Live: Gadgets, geegaws, and more stuff from CES with Brian M Westbrook

Brian M Westbrook was there. He saw some stuff. And luckily he sat down with Cami Kaos on Strange Love Live last week to give us a rundown on CES and what he saw. Phew! We can still embrace our technolust.

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
