Start up City: How the new tech boom is changing Portland
By creating a climate that encourages entrepreneurs and small start ups, Portland is developing a culture of innovation. Many speakers and attendees at this year's TechFest Northwest spoke enthusiastically about using technology to solve problems. The fourth part in this series on the growth of the technology industry in Portland focuses on the idea of "disruptive technologies" and different ideas about how technology may be used to create positive social change. Among those interviewed are Patrick Curtain, Community Manager of Idealist.
This is part four in a five part series on Technology in Portland, produced by Suzanne LaGrande.
