My sojourn to South Dakota has not given me too many insights into the nature of the national beer scene. The state is in a nascent phase of building a market for local beer; to date there are only 14 craft breweries, and most of them are tiny (one that I know of, Gandy Dancer, is so small and provisional one could debate w

As the early stage accelerator scene in Portland has cooled a bit, many of our companies have been looking to resources outside of the Rose City to help them during their formative stages. It probably comes as no surprise that Y Combinator and Techstars are shouldering the bulk of the load. But, there’s one Techstars

By Fred Thompson, Oregon Economics Blog So far, my criticisms have been directed to the pro-97 camp – to claims like Gov. Brown’s that “there is a basic unfairness in our tax system that makes working families pay an increasing share for state and local services.” Not so. Oregon has long had one of the […]

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times. Portland is a great town for mission driven startups. Maybe that’s why we’re home to more nonprofits per capita that any city in the US. But we can always use more—especially when they’re focused on new industries and startups. That̵

One of my favorite things about founders is that they’re problem solvers. Problem solvers who don’t wait for permission. They just see stuff that’s broken. And they come up with creative ways to fix it. So it should come as no surprise that—given the dearth of early stage startup support in the Portl

Jargon infects all human enterprise. It's probably a habit of mind that allowed speech to develop--which is a good thing. It also leads to the development of jargon when a group of people in a related field talk to each other long enough. And eventually, it leads to meaningless jargon where words are mere name checks that s
