Facilitating the Foursquare factor: Janrain partners with Badgeville to offer game mechanics

Seems like everyone is trying to incorporate game mechanics into their applications and offerings. Or, as we used to call them, “frequent flyer programs” or “loyalty programs.” Granted, there’s more than that to game mechanics, but that’s a big part of it.

I want my single sign on. Janrain adds MTV Networks to their customer roster. And money to the coffer.

And now, engaging with—and sharing—all that MTV owned goodness just got even easier. All thanks to Portland-based Janrain. Read More

Portland has gone acquisition crazy. Why? After surviving a lean year, there’s lots of good affordable technology out there. And that means that Portland-based businesses are snapping it up or other businesses are looking to Portland products to augment their own offerings.
