Portland to Portlandia

It’s very exciting to travel from Middletown/Portland Connecticut to be part of xoxofest in Portland, Oregon. I wrote a list of things I’m hoping to experience, and here are my predictions:

  • Meet a lot of nice people.
  • Connect with old friends.
  • Discover new old friends
  • Listen, learn and share

Portland has been very welcoming and all is weird so far. I came here to learn, engage and get less sleep.

Feel free to follow my Twitter feed @topherpolack to keep up. Twitter culture is very different here than in Connecticut, so I hope I can keep up with local thumb jockeys.*


*I was going write ‘big kids’, or ‘smart folks’, but ‘thumb jockey’ seems neutral. Besides, who wouldn’t want to be a thumb jockey?
