dMob December - Bad Holiday Sweater edition
Life of Riley Tavern

"Can I buy you a drink?"

This is our monthly gathering for the entire Portland design community. Social interaction and networking is the core of this monthly event. AIGA Portland wants to encourage discussion, business development, and help foster a more dynamic design community here in Portland.

How It Works

It’s simple. When you arrive, you’ll get a sticker to wear. Venture forth, find another sticker-wearer and offer them a drink. That’s the trick: you can’t just drink your own, that just wouldn’t be social. It’s a great way to break the ice.

Come join us downstairs at the Life of Riley tavern. There's no charge to come spend a few hours with your fellow creatives, but in the spirit of the season, we'd encourage you to bring along a canned good donation and wear your best, bad, holiday sweater.

dMob with Portland AIGA
North 45

All right dMobbers, July is almost over, and we know you are all hoping that none of your clients or co-workers saw you at one of the multitude of Portland’s famous beer festivals. You are probably dreading the, “Hey, wasn’t that you I saw hitting on the beer chip lady” conversation. Well, it is time to come out to do some damage control. dMob is classing it up this August at North 45. North 45 has wine, fancy cocktails, and promises to be an environment free from hop crowns, loud crowd cheers, and inebriated handstand competitions. Make new creative friends and never forget the dMob mantra… “Can I buy you a drink?”

The dMob Concept This is our monthly gathering for the entire Portland design community. Social interaction and networking is the core of this monthly event. AIGA Portland wants to encourage discussion, business development, and help foster a more dynamic design community here in Portland. Plus, with such a plethora of independent breweries, our choice of venues and beverages is expansive.

Fees Free and open to the public. That’s right, no charge! For one, you’ll have a great time. And even better, it’s an amazing opportunity to network and meet fellow designers.

How It Works It’s simple. When you arrive, you’ll get a sticker to wear. Venture forth, find another sticker-wearer and offer them a drink. That’s the trick: you can’t just drink your own, that just wouldn’t be social. It’s a great way to break the ice.

TiE Oregon: Energy Solutions for the Developing World
Intel Ronler Acres RA1 Auditorium

Bringing cost effective energy to the Billions living in primitive conditions

Over 1.6 billion people, upwards of 30% of the global population, are without access to electricity. Electricity advances developmental factors such as small business development, extended working hours, access to communications, enhanced education levels and rural development. Energy can improve life of millions.

In developing countries access to energy remains constrained by factors such as limited access to well adapted affordable technology, fragmented small markets, prohibitive taxes and limited financial resources. On Dec 14th , at the Copenhagen Climate conference the Obama Administration announced a $350 million dollar initiative dubbed “Climate REDI” to promote clean energy technologies in developing countries.

Join us on March 17th for a discussion with our expert panel, on what kind of innovations in products, finance, supply and service can ensure reliable & affordable energy to the billions of poor across the world.

Our 2 presenters Michael(Kipp) Baratoff, Principal, Equilibrium Capital & Patrick Maloney, Program Director, Lemelson Foundation have been fully immersed in this space, having been engaged with social entrepreneurs over the course of their careers. Lemelson Foundation awarded an energy grant to Selco India for it’s Incubation Center and Innovation Department to develop new products and new business models to solve key problems for energy consumers. The SELCO Solar Light Private Limited (SELCO India) is already an important provider of solar systems and cook stoves in southern India, with products that allow rural families to increase their household income while reducing the environmental and health risks of higher-cost kerosene lamps and inefficient stoves.

Our event organizer, TiE Oregon Clean Energy SIG chair, Ravi Sinha, is the Chairman of Choice Solar India Pvt Ltd., company engaged in creative distribution of energy solutions to India's marginalized residents.

Bill Campbell, our moderator for the evening is also a Principal at Equlibrium as well as a TiE Oregon Charter Member and Board Member.

They will bring an insight into problems, economics, delivery & growth of energy solutions.

This event is also a continuation of our theme “Serving the 6 Billion” on which we launched TiE Oregon in 2007. The keynote (watch the video on our website) speaker at the launch was C.K Prahalad, Paul & Ruth McCracken Distinguished University Professor of Corporate Strategy at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business, a globally recognized business consultant, who gave a stirring speech about the Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid.

It centers on the proposition that the world's poor can be the engine of the next round of global trade and prosperity and can be a source of innovation.

Go Portland Tech
AboutUs

Go Portland Tech is a chance for everyone involved in Portland technology to come try their hand at Go, a game that is loved by geeks the world over.

Go is both thousands of years old, simple to learn, and poses interesting computer science problems (a computer player has yet to beat the best humans, and amateurs can still beat the bots too).

Regular Portland Go club meetups are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays (see: OregonGo.org) but this is a chance for tech folks that are seasoned players or absolute beginners to get together and share a game.

No experience is necessary to attend, and there will be drinks and snacks.

Pythonic Summer Social Hour!
Produce Row Cafe

The next PDX Python meeting is just over a week away, and since the Webtrends space is not available the plan is to meet at Produce Row around 6:30pm. The pub is open to all ages until 9pm, so I hope everyone will be able to join us for an evening on their new patio. They've actually redone the entire interior, as well. I went there tonight to make sure they'd be able to accommodate us next week, and it looks awesome!

Thanks a ton to everyone who offered to host us this month. I hope we can take a raincheck for the next time we need a place to meet. :)

The Real Life Social Network
Webtrends

The focus of this talk isn't on Facebook, or Twitter, or Buzz - but rather how current research understands social interactions work in the real work. Specific technologies will only be mentioned as to how they all get it wrong - and more importantly - how you don't have to.

You won't want to miss this. It isn't another "Social network buzzword Twitter buzz buzzzzzz lol" talk - but real interesting research in human behavior with real implications on future UX design.

I'll be going over mostly the research presentation by Paul Adams, who works as the UX research lead for Google's social initiatives. EDIT: Apparently today he accepted a job at Facebook.

This year's "State of the Union" event will be held on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at the Jive offices in Portland, Oregon. It lines up with OSCON, the premier conference for open source technologies. We'll have discounted passes for the conference, so be sure to check out the OSCON site for all the detailed information about that event. If you just want to grab some swag, we'll also have "Expo Only" tickets as well.

While past State of the Union events have been structured as a "mini conference", this year we've decided to take a different tact. The Foundation's primary goals are to enable our community in developing open standards and technology that advance the social Web and foster a vibrant, open ecosystem of social platforms and applications. This year's event will be a series of working sessions where we will focus on specific topics that, as a community, we need to address in the upcoming year. Each session will be moderated to keep us on track. The moderator will produce an "action plan" that we'll use to track our progress and measure our results.

Changing an industry is never easy and, as always, there's plenty of work to do! Please come, roll up your sleeves, and join us for a great day of advancing the social Web.

COPIOUSLabs TechTalk: Measuring Social Geography with Graph Databases
COPIOUS

COPIOUS is a user-centered digital experience agency. We build digital products with the user at heart and technology in our bones. We recently moved to a new office and now have a large space to host our TechTalks.

About TechTalks:

COPIOUSLabs TechTalks series meets every other Friday at 1pm at the COPIOUS offices. Our talks span artificial intelligence, new programming languages and techniques, computational linguistics, geographic data processing, systems and software architecture, augmented reality, network security, and more as proposed to the Copious engineering team.

About this talk:

Speaker: Dann Stayskal

Graph databases offer a unique way of looking at data. Rather than the familiar tables of data, graph databases store data as relationships between named things. So, they're an ideal choice for social networks, geogrpahic route planning, and campaign finance modeling.

In this week's tech talk, Dann Stayskal walks us through how to configure a graph database called Neo4J to answer a few questions about social graphs: out of all connections on facebook, twitter, google+, and linkedin, who would it recommend to follow next?

This will be a public-accessible tech talk with no technical background necessary to follow along!

All are welcome to attend. If you have a talk that you'd like to suggest presenting, please email it to dann@copio.us along with a brief outline of what you'd like to cover.
