Lunch 2.0 at Souk today

Went to Lunch 2.0 at Souk in downtown Portland today. As usual, met interesting people:
  • Jim Helms, the blogger behind Today's Best Tools. A medic/soldier turned blogger.
  • Lea, blogger behind A.R. and Proud and Camp Naughty, and half of team that published the widget treasurelicious. Blogged about a greater variety of subjects until a posting about Oprah's use of the word "vajayjay" resulted in a surprising number of comments. So now she's spending more blogspace on sex education.
  • Dawn Foster (aka famous GeekyGirlDawn), social media consultant and a driving force behind the Portland tech community.
And if you need flexible office space, check out Souk.

Taking a step back, once again I'm impressed with the Portland tech community. It seems that Portland has a natural attraction for friendly, creative, open-minded people interested in sharing their knowledge and opinions and building interesting tools and technology together.
