Thinking out loud about the Portland startup community

I recently had the opportunity to appear on OPB for Think Out Loud. I’m always pleasantly surprised when I don’t put people to sleep while babbling about the Portland startup community. Not only did the host stay awake, but several listeners did, as well. Several.

In which I babble about the Portland startup community

I know, I know. It’s not exactly a rarity for me to babble about the Portland startup community. What is rare, however, is that someone takes the time to make it intelligible and digestible. But that’s just what Engine has done with their #startupseverywhere series.

Oregon Business op-ed: Startups drive the new economy

As you well know, I could prattle on and on about the Portland—and Oregon—startup scenes. For hours. And pages. And days. But it’s always nice to take on the challenge of trying to be concise. Because, honestly, I suck at it. But Oregon Business was kind enough to give me a platform to describe why I think their readers should be paying attention to the startup scene. Read More

Portland’s Armchair Mayor: Scraping the bottom of the barrel at Neighborhood Notes

The folks at Neighborhood Notes were kind enough to select me to be Portland’s Armchair Mayor, today. I know. I know. Everyone else must have been busy.

Well, and honestly, who better to play Armchair Mayor than someone who doesn’t really do anything? Read More

This week on memePDX, Cami Kaos and Rick Turoczy cover Venture Mash, Foodgeeks, Ignite Corvallis, Stephanie Stricklen is back at KGW The Square, Apple and DROID stuff.

I know, I know. We’re running a little late. We seriously didn’t mean to stand you up for lunch. Sometimes these things just happen. We’re really sorry.

But it’s still Thursday. And so we’re still kind of on time. Right? Right?

A few Portland techie podcasts for your Sunday afternoon or your Monday morning commute

Last Friday was podcast day for me. And for as nervous as I was, I think they turned out pretty well. No doubt thanks to the talented people actually managing the whole podcast thing and me just having to spout off every now and again.

So, I thought I’d share the links, in case you were interested in listening.

OPB Think Out Loud on open source

Jim Zemlin, Raven Zachary, Audrey Eschright, and I had the opportunity to chat about open source and the open source scene in Portland. Topics include OSCON, how we all use open source software and may not even know it, corporate adoption of open source, Portland’s culture as a complement to the open source community, open-source rockets, and NTEN.

Strange Love Live Tech Edition with Rick Turoczy

Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal invited me over for a tech edition of Strange Love Live (if you’re not watching/listening, you should be). And we were lucky enough to command a live studio audience as well, featuring Michelle Anderson (mediachick), Amber Case (caseorganic), Bram Pitoyo, and Kelly Guimont (verso). Topics included the reasoning behind Silicon Florist, the Portland tech scene, Vidoop, Intrigo, OSCON, the Open Web Foundation, and more.

[Update] If you’re interested in streaming the podcasts—instead of downloading them—Cami Kaos has posted the streaming audio files to her blog.

Strange Love Live #afterhours with Rick Turoczy

Once the serious Strange Love stuff is done, the cameras keep rolling for the #afterhours discussion. We continued talking about some of the tech topics, discussed my sleeping habits (or lack thereof), talked about and lightsaber-ed with the iPhone, made some tech predictions including hinting at Marshall Kirkpatrick‘s upcoming internet brain implant venture, thanked our luck stars for OurPDX, introduced folks to Planet PDX, talked about upcoming guest Melissa Lion, and got into a pretty serious bidding war for sponsoring Strange Love Live.

So… what do you think?

Suffice it to say, this was a trial by fire for me and audio. So I’d love to hear feedback as to a) whether I was intelligible at all and b) if I was intelligible, if you’d be interested in more podcasts from yours truly.

Looking forward to your feedback.
