Cyborg Camp: The Civic Web Will Help You Find Cats, Among Other Things


Food & Drink
We've written a bit about Max Ogden and his Portland API project over the past couple months, so we won't go on about it too much more here. But Ogden spoke this past week at CyborgCamp Portland 2010, a combination conference/un-conference exploring the interactions between humans and computers, and gave a few real-life, up-and-running examples of his idea of the “civic web.” It's funny: Ogden's ...   More

The Punk Group Pens Big-Ass Sandwich Theme Song


News
Why hasn't anybody done this before? Local electro-schlock duo the Punk Group has recorded a short jingle in honor of downtown food cart gut buster Big-Ass Sandwiches. We've got an email out to cart co-owner Lisa Wood to figure out whether they paid the musicians in roast beef. The ditty is appropriately short and to the point, with one major lyric: "Dude, I am totally wasted! (ME TOO!) Let's ...   More

Scalp Your Eat Mobile Tickets for Fun and (Non) Profit?


News
All 1,200 tickets to this weekend's Eat Mobile food cart festival were sold out by Wednesday morning, and we're getting lots of desperate calls from hungry Portlanders who waited too long to purchase their passes. We really don't have any more to sell, so some of the needy have turned to Craigslist, where they're offering well above the $7 face value for wristbands. We don't approve of scalping ...   More

Show Us Your PDX Food Cart Pride; Win a Pair of Eat Mobile Tix.

We're a soft-hearted bunch here at WW Headquarters.
