Portland Tech 2008
Looking back, looking forward
Who am I?
That which I will admit exists
  but will not be my focus
      (but we can talk
     about as a group)
That on which I will focus
Making headlines
A view of the Forest via the Florist
Community
Our greatest achievement in 2008
had absolutely nothing to do with code
Virtual
Physical
Ad-hoc

Camp-ing-ish stuff
Events that fostered community
Side Project to Startup
Mainstream media
Wider recognition of what’s happening

What’s next?
Some of the things I see
for Portland tech in 2009
Still no funding
Technology
Mobile
OpenID
Geolocation
Community
Open Source Bridge
Hacklab / Geek Lodge
Current voices
will grow stronger
Some old favorites will return
“Outsiders” will join the
     community...
and they’ll be good at it
Traditional business interest
Your turn: What’s next?
More importantly, what would you like to see?
Thank you
