What’s next? Some of the things I see for Portland tech in 2009

Still no funding






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
