Let’s see: technology, business, food porn, extreme craft, books, and building community. That would be a good start.
Checking out Yahoo Shine. Disappointing. I think a site for women I actually know would involve more business and technology.
Apr 24, 2008: April BarCamp Portland Informal Tech... →
The intent is to get a group of cool people interested in technology together to chat over drinks on the fourth Thursday of every month. Anyone working in high-tech is welcome to attend….
Using Paypal to buy a book from Powells’ international warehouse, which is easier than I expected as a way of getting a UK-published book.
Heifer has honey for sale (from their projects in the US and Honduras) but you have to call to order. Hmm.
Apr 1, 2008: Portland Ruby Brigade at CubeSpace →

To Say Nothing of the Three Crates of Picnic... →
Over the weekend I read To Say Nothing of the Dog, by Connie Willis, which is a time travel caper that references Three Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the dog), by Jerome K. Jerome. And…
I could use an incentive to go outside before noon, too.
Stop by if you have time, that sort of thing. Any interest?
Maybe I’ll start referring to Victorian era menus for ideas on how much food for upcoming events I’m doing. We certainly won’t run short.
We’re talking about doing a lunch work session for Calagator on Wednesday at Backspace. Could expand it into a full-day side project meetup.
There ought to be a Portland Twitter side project drop-in center. Show up in person on your coffee break or lunch, scheme with others.
I think all you’d need to track is who, what project, and what sort of help/resources they need.
Looking at Startupalooza reports makes me want to do something about my 20 neglected side-projects. Anyone want to help? :P
I’d be willing to set it up on pbwiki over lunch if that wouldn’t step on anyone’s toes.
Plus more email keeps coming in. Eek. Maybe I will finally try out Sandy.
Suspecting that just because I have no email marked unread, I am not actually caught up.
Someone joined the Calagator mailing list to promote his own company’s product? Um.
Thanks to To Say Nothing of the Dog, today’s weird obsessive research topic is Victorian picnics.
Probably going to be late to the dorkbot event if I make it at all.
Back home after awesome conversations at the Startupalooza after party.
Heading over to startupalooza as soon as the worst of this clears.
Is that rain.
We, rain show or hail outside?
No fish yet. Good birdwatching, though.
Here fishy fishy fishy
Stopped at pine state biscuits for breakfast to go. Not too busy there this early.
Trying to finish my tea before Peter gets here. I’m all packed for fishing!
Checking out Pause on interstate.
Timbers lost 2-1. Ah well. Warming up now.
It’s halftime, the Timers are losing 2 - 0. And snow. Definitely preseason.
Timbers! Phone needs to learn that.
Waiting for the game to start. Big group here tonight.
No beer and blog for me after all. There’s no way to make it over to Green Dragon and still be at UP for the Timber game at 7:30.
Hoping I don’t freeze at the soccer game. I’m wearing three layers and a wool hat, but UP gets really cold.
Wondering if there will still be people at Green Dragon by the time I can make it over (5:30-6ish?)
It’s cats in boxes week in my apartment. Probably means we need to take out the recycling already.
Thinking about bundling up for a short walk as soon as I’m off this call.
Hmm, Gnomedex is a possibility…
Getting pizza at Stark Naked.
Heading downtown now. (But I’m not the only one running late. :)
Yay, the cheddar almost has enough rind now. Tomorrow I’ll wax it, and maybe even start on gouda.
Reason N+34 to love working from home: being able to make roasted hazelnuts with smoked salt for a snack on a whim.
Packing the XO and brownies for tonight’s meetup.
I think we have hail. It’s bouncing too much for snow.
I have an awful time with names unless I see them written down, but remembering what people do (for a living or fun)? Much easier.
Using a fan to try to get the cheddar dried out enough to wax.
