December 5th, 2015 · Comments Off on LA, Portland

Thanks to some thoughtful planning on the part of the FIAF Secretariat, I was able to painlessly combine my already planned trip west for the AMIA Conference in Portland with the somewhat unexpected and definitely financially unforeseen trip to the EC Meeting in Los Angeles, held over the two days prior to AMIA.

Thoughts on Stumptown

May 19th, 2004 · Comments Off on Thoughts on Stumptown

As the inaugural post in my “Portland” category, I offer the following thoughts: I think it’s pretty great that in yesterday’s mayoral primary (in which the guy who limited contributions to his campaign to $25 got 41% of the vote, while the guy who raised a million dollars only got only 37%), candidates named “David […]
