In depth discussions about Portland, podcasting, and the death of traditional media? That’s Crazy Talk

Introducing Crazy Talk a new podcast from Dr. Normal that brings the backroom conversations of the Portland Oregon tech community to the forefront.

Here in the Portland blogging, startup, and open source community, we get into a bunch of conversations. Conversations about the future. Conversations about how to make a living doing what we love. Conversations about what we could do to make things better.

But so many of these conversations are lost in the ether or wedged into the gray matter of the few people who were involved in the conversation. Until now.

It’s another Thursday, and that means it’s time for another memePDX, the weekly wrap up of the hottest tech stories from Portland… and beyond.

memePDX: Portland tech news for those short on time and/or attention

Anyone who has spent any time around Silicon Florist realizes that I tend to be a little longwinded. And that’s putting it lightly. Brevity? Not my strong suit. And for many, reading through my lengthy posts isn’t the preferred way of getting their tech news.

So, I’ve been thinking about ways to get you more of the news you want with less effort on your part. And a different form of media seemed to be the best way to do it. So I begged started talking to the Strange Love Live folks and after a series of tantrums and crying fits on my part discussions, they finally agreed to help.

The result? memePDX. Read More
