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

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
