Foggy Day Dangers

November 17, 2008 1 comment

It’s once again a foggy morning in Portland. I love them. It feels so cool and crisp when I walk out of the front door of my house, and I love the cold, moist air rushing into my lungs.

One thing that I’d like to request of all other Portland residents on these mornings. I’d like to ask that on these mornings everyone drive with their lights ON. I know that it isn’t necessary for you to see where you’re going, but it’s critical for everyone else on the road to see you. I had a couple of scares this morning where I almost merged into some gray cars on the freeway that didn’t have their lights on.

So, for the safety of all of us, help me out here, turn your headlights on.

Ignite Portland 4

November 14, 2008 Leave a comment

Went to Ignite Portland 4 last night. My company was good enough to give some sponsor money to the event. I really love that my company can give some money to support local events where possible. I’m pretty proud that we’ve sponsored all of the events since the first Ignite Portland at Weiden and Kennedy.

Typically each sponsor is given a chance to speak for a short time in front of the audience, but this time the organizers asked for a video. I had a great time pulling together our video for the event. We have a ton of great people Extensis who have a good sense of humor and were willing to hit themselves in the head with a product box for the cause. Here’s the result:

Overall the crowd was very respectful and had a great time with all of the presentations and sponsor videos. To those who cheered our video, and those of other sponsors, thanks! To those who ‘boo-ed’ the Microsoft short recognition, you are disrespectful twats and a pox on your house. They were kind enough to sponsor the event that was FREE to you, so suck it up and act at least a little dignified – no matter what you think of their products. Didn’t your mother tell you that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all?
