Well, well, well, it’s Thursday. And that means it’s time for another episode of memePDX. But this time? It’s even wackier than usual.

You see, sometimes in the world of trying to cover tech stories, you get some information early. Under embargo. And sometimes that information changes. Or the date changes. Or snow storms happen back east. And that means we have to edit the show. And by “edit” we mean “quickly hack out.” So you may notice the show is a little choppy in spots. But it’s still really good. I promise. Read More

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

Portland’s rollercoaster year: Recapping the 2009 startup scene and looking forward to 2010

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of sitting on the couch at Strange Love Live as Cami Kaos, Dr. Normal, and I talked through the year that was. It was one of tremendous highs and extreme lows.

And as I kept babbling, struggling for a way to describe 2009, Cami stopped me. And then summarized the whole thing, quite simply, as a “rollercoaster.” Which is a perfect summary. Because that’s exactly what 2009 was for the Portland startup scene. A rollercoaster. Read More
