Oregon’s path of totality isn’t the only eclipse related news today

It’s no secret that Oregon went a little crazy for the eclipse today. But did you know that the path of totality wasn’t our only claim to fame on this momentouss occasion? Portland startup Brandlive partnered with NASA to help them livestream the entire show.

Five years ago, Portland's startup scene was approaching the end of a very long and incredibly rewarding day

Every year, as the holidays roll around, I am reminded of a time when we—as a scrappy startup scene—all pulled together as a group to do something amazing. It was truly a first. And it was a fortifying moment for what the Portland startup scene and its friends could accomplish when we put our minds—and hearts—to it. This year, it’s the five year anniversary of that event. It was called 30 Hour Day. Read More

PIE Demo Day 2014 livestream: If you can't join us in person, please join us from the comfort of your laptop or mobile device

Like any startup accelerator, PIE likes to make its demo days as accessible as it possibly can. We always host it in a big theater. But that sold out quickly, this year. So we added a simulcast venue thanks to our friends at eBay Portland. But now both of those venues are standing room only. So in order to make sure that everyone has a chance to experience the event, we’re going to be livestreaming PIE Demo Day again. Read More

Couldn't make the trip to Bend? No worries. They're livestreaming the Bend Venture Conference this year.

One of the best and longest running venture capital events in the state is the Bend Venture Conference. But for some of us—be it pending demo days or simply overbooked schedules—it can be hard to tear away from work to visit central Oregon. That’s why I’m happy to see that BVC is livestreaming their event this year. Read More

It’s that time of year again. PIE Demo Day is October 11 at 2PM in the Gerding Theater at the Armory. And while the show has been sold out for weeks, they want as many people as possible to be able to join us. So they’re livestreaming the event. Read More

REMINDER: PIE Demo Day is Friday — and, yes, it will be livestreamed

[Full disclosure: I work for PIE.] The wait is almost over. We’re about 24 hours away from a whole new crop of PIE (Portland Incubator Experiment) startups taking the stage. And even though the event has been sold out for weeks, they’d like to invite you to attend—from the comfort of your own Web browser. Read More

That’s a complete crock of… well tasty awesomeness: brandlive to power Crock Pot® Live

It’s no secret that Portland doesn’t have a ton of big consumer brands here in town. So when one of our local startups lands a deal with a household name—especially when it’s literally a household name—that’s a pretty big deal.

Like today. When brandlive from Portland’s Cascade Web Development announced they will be powering the livestream and conversation around the launch of a new Crock Pot®. Read More

Thinking you missed out on the first #140conf in the Pacific Northwest? Think again. We’ve got your #140confNW right here.

Today, the first #140conf in the Pacific Northwest is being held right here in our backyard—well or Aaron Hockley’s lawn—in Vancouver, Washington.

It’s a bit of momentous occasion as #140confNW—our own flavor of this well known conference—sweeps into town. And it’s only made more interesting by the fact that they’re focusing on the public sector’s use of social media—especially in times of crisis. But phooey. All of this groundbreaking stuff and you’re stuck there at your desk, missing it. Or are you? Read More

Open Affairs TV: It’s like C-SPAN only less boring and more open source-y

If only there were a channel that focused on government topics that were interesting. Like open government, open source, and fixing healthcare. Well, now there is. Introducing Open Affairs TV.

Remember when C-SPAN launched? Well I do. Boy oh boy were we excited. Watching government in action! Wahoo! The only problem, of course, is that government isn’t in action all that much. And when it is, it’s not all that exciting.

If only there were a channel that focused on government topics that were interesting. Like open government, open source, and fixing healthcare. Well, now there is. Introducing Open Affairs TV. Read More
