Wondering what Portland Black Lives Matter events are taking place for Juneteenth — and every other day of the year?

There is something about the Portland culture of collaboration that inspires collection, aggregation, and amplification. To make things easier to use. To raise the visibility of important conversations. And to use technology to make things more accessible. So it should come as little surprise to anyone that with something as undeniably important as the Black Lives Matter movement, Portland would have its own aggregated calendar of Black Lives Matter events.

I told you October is chock full of events… For startup founders, keeping track of all of the accelerator programs can be a challenge. So I wanted to make sure a couple of upcoming events were on your radar. One will help you decide on potential accelerators. Another will help you understand what participating in the culmination of an accelerator—affectionately referred to as “demo day”—is like.

Interested in another perspective on Portland? Consider subscribing to Bridgeliner

I often bemoan the fact that, dadgummit, kids just don’t blog like they used to. What with all of the social medias and stuff. That’s why it’s always nice to see another voice providing news and insights on Portland and our community. Like Bridgeliner, a local outpost of the WhereBy.Us network.

As we wend our way toward Thanksgiving, here are two women focused startup events for which to be thankful

I realize that it’s not going to come as a shock to anyone that Portland needs more diverse speakers and viewpoints and topics in its startup events. You know, something to stem the neverending tide of manels around here. And that’s why I’m really happy to get the chance to share two new events focused on women entrepreneurs.

Frustrated by neverending calendar bingo? Maybe this will help break the bottleneck. And build community.

As much as I love Portland, there are still any number of things — or lack thereof — that can cause a ton of frustration. Like the lack of infrastructure for getting connected to the startup community. Time and time again, I hear from folks how difficult it is to get connected.

From events to signature craft brews, there’s a whole bunch mo’ Mozilla and Firefox around Portland, lately

While Mozilla has been part of the Portland tech community for more than a decade, they didn’t officially open an office here—their first US office outside of Silicon Valley—until five years ago. But with ever growing concerns about privacy and security on the Web, Mozilla has recently started making a lot more noise about their presence in the Rose City—and their Firefox Web browser.

You have homework this weekend: Figure out your Portland Startup Week 2018 schedule

I get it. No. Seriously. I do. We all understand that the “P” in “Portland” stands for “procrastination.” It’s cool. But there comes a time when procrastination turns into actually having to do something. And that time is nigh. Because Portland Startup Week starts in a matter of hours. I know right? Kinda snuck up on us.

Portland’s human-centered disciplines now have a central information resource

Oh, Portland. For all of your well intended gathering and collaborating, it can be a bit of a challenge to figure out where to go and who to meet. That’s why I love stuff like Calagator where you can find anything and everything in a single resource. And now, if you’re pursuing a human-centered discipline, you’ve got a centralized resource of your own. Meet PDXHCD.
