Could I be the only one interested in an email newsletter covering the tech scene in Eugene, Oregon?
Late in 2016 I became interested in email newsletters. A few month before I started a podcast that covers the streaming industry. To prepare for the Stream Team Show I have to do two things every week.
The first is watch t.v. and movies. The second is to stay on top of industry news.
As you can imagine streaming, and on-demand content has a lot going on each week. At first I tried to follow everything on my own. I wised up and learned about the power of curation. That’s when my interest in email newsletters started to grow.
I began hunting for newsletters about different topics. Later looking for an email newsletter covering my interest in the tech scene here in Eugene. I didn’t find one.
Let’s outline my ideal email newsletter covering the tech scene in Eugene. That way you can steal the idea, create it, and let me be subscriber number one.
For the short time that I’ve been living in Eugene, Oregon there’s one problem I can’t escape.
It echoes through slack channels and even over casual beers. The issue appears during high-brow parties, and at local meetups.
I’ve spoken to a Wall Street Journal reporter and city level organization directors about it. The problem attacks local business owners, University of Oregon professors, and fellow software developers.
The problem appear in the form of a question. How do we get local students to know about opportunities in Eugene? How do we hold on to our skilled talent? How can we keep up with all the great things happening in town?
These all seem to be questions around awareness. I think the tech scene in Eugene, Oregon has a media problem. We can help change that.
Today you can add Google maps to your application with a few lines of code. Just think about how crazy that is?
Just because you’re in the game doesn’t mean you’re playing the right one.
I recently watched an episode of FunFunFunction by MPJ. He was talking about why settings are evil.
There was one concept from the video that I found interesting. The idea is that software that’s complicated to test can’t maintain quality.
Would it be crazy to say I’ve uncovered the algorithm for success?
It was late at night, everyone had gone to sleep long ago.
I was coding while trying my best to avoid burnout.
I was unsuccessful.
I was finally done! I had taken my last order, chopped my last potato, and washed my last red plastic tray. After my final shift at In-N-Out (yes I’ve worked at In-N-Out), I thought I would never be in the restaurant business again.
