Kickstarter: Support Grassroots Endeavors
Tuesday, April 24, 2012 by cyberacoustics
Every day, I visit some of my favorite sites to find out what’s new and exciting in the technology world. You know the ones: Mashable, Engadget, Mac Rumors, etc. Lately, I’ve been seeing more and more mentions of a startup company asking for funding to launch their idea. Recently, Pebble, a customizable watch for iPhone and Android, was seeking $100K in funding and received over $5 million. This may seem like an anomaly, but think about it. If you have an idea, wouldn’t it be great to be able to pitch it to the world? Who knows—you may even hit the jackpot.
“Portlandia—The other side of Portland, Oregon

Even though I’ve been working and living on the west coast for over 20 years, I still say I am from the east coast. I’ve lived outside of Boston, NYC, and Washington, DC. I’m a die-hard Yankees and Giants fan and understand the way of life back there, but I’ve been lucky enough to visit just about every major city in America. Each one has its own personality and distinctive culture. But when it comes to Portland, Oregon (“Ore-gone” if you’re a non-native), this city is in a world of its own.
