Portland, We Salute You! Portland Startup Week Recap

Here’s my Portland Startup Week recap complete with published articles in business journals, techie bloggers, mainstream TV coverage, 140-character tweets, pictures and one amazing keynote from my very first hackfest as a participant and not just the host!
