On April 30, several hundred people gathered for a special TFNW event–an evening dedicated to discussing the issues of the sharing economy. Panels, speakers, food and drink–it was a heady mix, and the main event, a discussion between Mayor Charlie Hales and Uber VP David Plouffe (the former campaign manager for Barack Obama) lived up to its billing.
Here’s a short clip of the event.
Thursday April 30, 2015, 4:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The latest installment of the Techtown Portland videos is out and I have to say, it makes me want to move to Portland.
Which is a good thing, since that’s the slick new video’s intent.
The roughly five-minute video was commissioned by a group of Portland’s technology companies as well as the Portland Development Commission, the Technology Association of Oregon and Business Oregon. It aims to, simply, highlight life in the Silicon Forest.
