Live from the Rose City and the Silicon Forest, covering Portland, Oregon, technology startups, and bloggers.

It’s Design Week Portland so it only stands to reason that design and creative work would be top of mind. But you know what’s always top of mind for creatives? Unauthorized use. Since the dawn of the /www folder, folks online have been using photos and imagery without proper attribution. Sometimes it’s int

It’s always good to see northwest tech and startup publications getting better and better. And that’s why it was great to hear that my friends up north at GeekWire had managed to bring Portland based tech journalist Tom Krazit onto their team. Over the last fifteen years or so, there were two seismic shifts in

With all of the tech events that tend to take place in Portland each year, it can be difficult for sponsors to find the right events for their companies or organizations to support. And even when you identify the right events, chasing down all of the respective details for actually sponsoring them can be more

I know you’ve probably got a jam-packed Friday night. But just in case you don’t have something already planned, I wanted to give you something to do: watch a Portland company compete on Shark Tank. Techstars Seattle alum Validated filmed the episode a while ago, but it’s airing tonight. Last summer, our t

One of the things I love about Portland is that—in addition to all of the amazing startups—there are startups who work to help other startups. Sometimes they’re providing training. Sometimes they’re accelerators. And sometimes they’re content creators. Like the Portland Radio Project. I recently had th

For as many consumer products as we produce around Portland—and throughout the state—its still rare for Portland’s tech startups and consumer brands to cross paths. It happens. Most notably with companies like Brandlive, embodee, Opal, and Orchestra. But not as often as you’d think. Well, today, I

Like Ruby? What about open source? Oh. Cool. By any chance, might you be looking for a new content management system? Well, boy howdy. I’m thinking you might like what FINE—a digital agency with a presence in Portland and San Francisco—has just cooked up. Meet Fae. It’s been a while since I’ve

While slaughtering the English language is among my chief hobbies, I’m busy most days running PIE, an ongoing experiment to figure out how startups and established corporations and organization can collaborate for mutual benefit. Over the past eight years, it’s been a coworking space, an early stage startup acce

In the early days of this blog—way way back in 2007—when we wanted to find an event or figure out what was happening, there was one place we all went: Upcoming.org. Back then, in Portland BC (Before Calagator), the site provided a unique way of figuring who was going where and what might be an

Now, unless you’ve been completely off the grid this week, you’ve no doubt heard rumblings of legislation that flew through congress that basically strips away any privacy about your browsing history. What’s more, it allows your ISP to sell that browsing history to the highest bidder to use however they se

Any number of you have had the misfortune of being stuck in a room, listening to me babble about my opinions on the Portland startup community. It happens. And yes, you feel uncomfortable getting up and walking out. I get it. But for whatever reason, I still get invited to talk about Portland startup stuff

Sometimes—not often, mind you, but sometimes—I write stuff other places. I mean, it’s not any better than the stuff I write here. And honestly, it would be difficult for it to be grammatically worse than the stuff I write here. But in any case, sometimes I write stuff on other platforms that could still be

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of being stuck in a room where I’m on a panel talking about Portland as a city and community, you’ve probably heard me mention Portland’s “ridiculous decisions.” And bemoaning the fact that we don’t seem to be making those decisions as often—o

It’s not just you. There’s a definite shift in the feel of Portland, as of late. It’s definitely feeling a little more California. And a lot more Bay Area. And there’s a reason. Apparently, Portland is doing more than its fair share of importing both people and money from the Golden State. When peopl

While it may be too late to get your ticket to TechfestNW, this year, it’s never too late to learn more about how one of the largest local tech conferences has grown over the years. Output PDX recently sat down with Mark Zusman, editor in chief of Willamette Week and founder of TFNW to chat

One of my favorite things about attending events—tech or otherwise—is the opportunity to discuss what I’ve heard with other attendees. To get their takes. And their perspectives. Because everyone hears something different. Even though we’re all hearing the exact same presentations. And there’s

While I don’t generally cover real estate sort of things, this one motivated me to post. Because it continues the long line of startups in Portland occupying the same space at the corner of NW 11th and NW Flanders in the Pearl. This time, the company filling the space will be Cloudability. Mike Rogoway at

Portland loves its shiny objects. And cutting edge technology. It’s our whole culture of curiosity. We can’t help it. But sometimes, getting ahold of the latest and greatest technology can be challenging. That’s when you need someone with connections. Like leading consumer technology blog and local success

It’s a well known adage that Portland was built upon an ancient unicorn burial ground. So it should come as no surprise that a member of the Portland startup community would be proposing we bury the latest incarnation of that mythical beast—the so-called unicorn startup, a company with a valuation of at least $1

It wasn’t so long ago when Portland was hungry for a homegrown tech conference that celebrated and showcased the wide variety of technology and startups that call the Rose City home. Over the last few years, TechfestNW has grown from beyond its humble beginnings to be exactly that sort of conference. But they’re

Like many folks in Oregon, the video game community is creative, passionate, and, well, aggressively humble. But once a year, Oregon Games Organization takes the opportunity to make a little more noise than usual. To talk about what’s happening. And to celebrate some of the amazing folks in this community. It’s

There was a time when Portland was home to more camps than you could shake a stick at. Camp this. Camp that. Camp camp campity camp. And while the number of camps have thinned a bit in recent years, it’s always good to see one that’s stuck around. Like ProductCamp Portland, which takes place this

Today, perhaps more than ever, social change and supporting one another are top of mind for all of us. And nowhere is that more evident than the startup community.

So this is interesting. For all the positives of the Skyward acquisition today, it still had one issue that has been consistently part of our “liquidity event” stories: it was a solitary event.

Sure, sure. Everyone is talking about the Verizon acquisition of Yahoo! But honestly? I’m more interested in an acquisition that may fly below the RADAR. (Buh dum buh… tiss!)
