Don’t just demo, Portland. Demolicious. (Your favorite tech demo night is back.)

If you’ve been around Portland for a while, you might recall Demolicious, a quarterly series of events hosted by Portland Web Innovators that allowed Portland startups and developers demo interesting projects on which they had been working. It was a great way to see all the random stuff happening in town.

It was a great way to see all the random stuff happening in town.

Well, as these sorts of things often do, Demolicious went on a bit of hiatus. But now? It’s back. A little bigger and a little better. Well, a little better, that is, if you apply to show Portland what you’ve been working on. Read More

REMINDER: First Portland Web Innovators of 2009 (tonight!) will be Demolicious

Flirting with its third year, Portland Web Innovators is one of the old guard when it comes to the new Web tech scene in Portland. For many developers, it’s the best place to get together on a regular basis to share ideas.

As such, there’s no better way to get an early glimpse of the next big thing here in the Silicon Forest than with Demolicious, PDXwi’s quarterly demo round-up of new products.

And you’re in luck. It’s tonight.

Currently scheduled to appear:

  • Dave Miller, An Open Laszlo Project
  • Michael Kelly, Foodisms
  • Akshay Dodeja, Mugasha
  • Scott Andreas, Sunago

So come on out and see your peers demonstrate the cool stuff they’ve been building, tonight at 7 PM, hosted by NEMO design. To RSVP or for more info, see Demolicious on Upcoming.

Beer and Blog & Open Source Bridge: Two great tastes that taste great together

Beer and BlogLast night at the Portland Web Innovators presentation, I got the chance to laud compliments on Beer and Blog, an event that has really helped solidify the Web and Open Source startup community in Portland—and now Corvallis. A little later, I got the chance to share some of the early thinking on what will be the biggest volunteer event for Portland in 2009, Open Source Bridge.

Well, as luck would have it, whether you’re interested in Beer and Blog or Open Source Bridge, you can kill two birds with one stone this week. Because Beer and Blog this week will feature none other than Open Source Bridge:

Hi friends! Rick Turoczy asked me if he and the Open Source Bridge crew could lead some discussion tomorrow @beerandblog. I think what they are up to is valuable to the Portland community and her tech scene, so I said yes. If you’re not yet familiar with Open Source Bridge, they are a group of local techies that want to continue OSCON now that they are not coming back to Portland. But, they’re growing into much more than that.

So why not take some time out of your busy schedule of attending holiday parties to hang out with the Open Source Bridge team at Beer and Blog? Not interested in Open Source Bridge? Come on over anyway. You might find yourself having such a good time that you wind up wending your way over to the CyborgCamp pre-party at Vidoop.

RSVPs abound: Beer and Blog and the CyborgCamp pre-party.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there.
