Strange Love Live recaps 2008 and looks toward 2009

Strange Love LiveI had the honor of joining the Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal on Strange Love Live for a recap of 2008 and a look forward to 2009.

Well, not “joining” exactly. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to actually attend in person, thanks to the Portland arctic blast, snowpocalypse, and resulting thawnami.

But it’s probably just as well, given that I was all prepared to show up in my “incoming 2009” outfit—a sash and not much else. So thanks to Aaron Hockley for allowing me to appear more respectable.

Cami and Dr. Normal altered the usual format giving us the opportunity to talk for a good 90 minutes—and that led to some pretty interesting discussions including the top events on 2008, Vidoop, Shizzow, Bacon Geek, Beer and Blog, KGW’s The Square with Stephanie Stricklen and Aaron Weiss, Twitter, Rael Dornfest, pdxtst, Our PDX, Neighborhood Notes, OpenID, calling Facebook Connect the Hotmail of this generation… even indulging in some conspiracy theory and what’s to be in 2009.

Here’s us chatting about the 2008 recap:


And here’s our discussion of the potential future for 2009:


Or, if you just want to listen to the whole shooting match, have at it:


Thanks, yet again, to Cami and the good Doctor for allowing me to appear on the show. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Strange Love Live is the best podcast in the Portland. And one prediction for 2009 that’s sure to come true? You ain’t seen nothing yet as far as Strange Love Live goes.

And hopefully, we’ll see the same thing for any number of people in our area. I’m really interested to see what Portland and the Silicon Forest will do in 2009.

And of course, I’m truly looking forward to watching—and covering—that of which you’re capable of in 2009.

What’s better than Boxing Day? Strange Love Live on Boxing Day, of course!

Strange Love LiveI know, I know. You’ve all been girding up for your Boxing Day celebrations. Braving the weather and the treacherous conditions to make sure that everything is just so on December 26th. So when you’re done with the hectic Boxing Day goings-on, why not take a load off and reward yourself?

How, you ask? With Strange Love Live, silly.

At 10 PM, December 26th, Cami Kaos and Dr. Normal have been kind enough to welcome me into their studio, yet again, to discuss the Silicon Forest tech scene. What happened in 2008 and—more importantly—what’s going to happen in 2009.

And if that’s not exciting enough, then try this: Strange Love Live is now on Mogulus, which means more quality audio and video for you. Win win win.

So now, you can enjoy the holidays, knowing full well that at 10 PM on December 26th, you’re going to be able to get your Strange Love Live fix.

Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.

And don’t forget, if you—yes, YOU!—want to be part of the Strange Love Live show, make sure to proffer your predilection for prognostication by submitting your predictions for the Silicon Forest tech scene in 2009. We’ll be discussing the best submissions during the show.

Rest assured, I’ll be doing everything in my power to ford the snowpocalypse or thawnami to make it to the studio.
