This was three years ago, Portland

I just returned from Portland mayoral candidate Eileen Brady addressing Portland startups and tech entrepreneurs. Whenever folks start championing Portland’s potential for business, I can’t help but be reminded of Chris Logan‘s Ignite Portland presentation. Read More

All fired up to present at Ignite Portland 10? Cool your jets.

Ignite Portland has been one of the seminal events for the startup and tech renaissance here in Portland. And it’s one of a handful of events that helped spark—pun intended—and codify a segment of the tech community in Portland proper.

But it’s also important to bear in mind that Ignite Portland is an entirely volunteer run conference. That takes its toll. And that is why the next iteration of the event—Ignite Portland 10—won’t be taking place until mid 2011 at the very earliest. Read More

Can’t wait for Beer and Blog this week? This bus will take you there on Thursday for free. The catch? It’s in Corvallis.

Most of the folks in the Portland Web scene have become all too familiar with a little Friday ritual called Beer and Blog. The event—which began with Justin Kistner helping a few other bloggers over beers—rapidly grew into the de facto happy hour for the Portland blogging and tech scene.

So this week, you’ve got the chance to go to Beer and Blog one day early—and get to experience Ignite Corvallis as a bonus. But how to get there? On this bus, my friend. Read More
