And it’s no secret that many of the connections, gatherings, and events that made that possible were very much due to a substantially larger and more well connected tech community—the open source community—whose activity served as the foundation for the growing community of tech entrepreneurs.
Ah spring! When a young person’s thoughts turn to that of speaking at a variety of events. And as luck would have it, there’s the opportunity to speak at an awesome event right here in town. If you get on it. The Open Source Bridge call for proposals ends March 23 at midnight. Read More

Be that as it may. If you’re into open source, there is no better place to be this summer than Portland, where Open Source Bridge and OSCON will be filling the Rose City with all sorts of open source goodness. Read More

Now, they need interesting open source types to share their passion, their knowledge, and their insights about being a good open source citizen. And how about making one of those speakers you?

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times (at least): Portland loves the open source. Loves it. From user groups to committing to code to supporting all things open, it’s part of the very makeup of our tech community.

Yes, you read that right. It’s entirely volunteer run. So if you’ve got a few extra cycles and have an interest in open source, I highly suggest you swing by NedSpace Old Town to help the Open Source Bridge folks plan Open Source Bridge 2010, tonight. Read More
