I’ve been a bit remiss on thanking Silicon Florist’s sponsors. And they happen to be two great events, one coming up this week and one coming up in May. In terms of bang for your buck, they’ve got a lot to offer. And I’m not just saying that because they’re sponsors. Well, not entirely.

Well, it’s Thursday again. But unfortunately, due to scheduling and health, memePDX didn’t make it into the can this week. These things happen. The world is an imperfect place. Screws fall out all of the time.
But there, there, little camper. We’ve still got something for you. You see, we still did show prep. So we’ve got the stories. And that’s why I’m going to give you what Cami Kaos (@camikaos) and I (@turoczy) would have covered this week if we’d had a show. Read More
