Community Hour[s]

It's Portland Startup Week! What better time to get the startup community together? 

That's why Built OregonPIE, and Silicon Florist is using Startup Week as an opportunity to kick off a new year of Community Hour[s], our ongoing gatherings for all of the people who make up the entrepreneurial fabric of our community. We'll also be joined by our friends Cascade Angels. There is no agenda, panel, or discussion. It’s a time to relax and network with old friends and make new connections with your peers and across industries. 

As much as we all love technology, we realize that community relationships are built through personal connections and shared stories. So we hope you’ll join us for a few minutes — or a couple of hours.

This will be a combined event with the XXcelerate Fund Meet 'n' Greet.

Beer of Trust Key-Signing

"Beer of Trust" is a key signing party with beer, and a chance to hang out and talk about PGP, encryption, and other related things!

What's a key-signing party?

A key-signing party is a get-together with PGP users for the purpose of meeting other PGP users and signing each other's keys. This helps to extend the "web of trust" to a great degree. Also, it sometimes serves as a forum to discuss strong cryptography and related issues.

What if I don't have a key yet?

If you don't have a PGP key yet, this is a good chance to get your feet wet. If you bring a computer, you can generate a test key at the event and experiment with sending messages to others there. It can be helpful to have someone present to walk you through the process the first time. It is recommended that you only generate a test key at the event, and later generate your real key in private. See below for links to some helpful resources for securely generating a key.

What do I need for this party?

If you are bringing a key to sign, then make sure you bring:

  • A picture ID or some other way for people to match you to your identity
  • Your key ID, key type, hex fingerprint, and key size. You can print out slips of paper to hand out your key info if you'd like.
  • A pen/pencil or whatever you'd like to write with
  • A computer is not required, and it is not recommended to use your computer to sign keys at the event

At the event, you'll meet others, confirm their key ID in person, and swap key IDs with them. Later when you get home, you can download the full keys and sign them, then upload the signature to the keyserver or email it to them directly.

RSVP here.

Beer and Blog
It started simply enough, as a small group of bloggers helping one another over beers. But little by little, it became the happy hour for the startup community and the place to introduce new arrivals to the community at large. Since our beloved Green Dragon is no more, we’re going to change it up a little. Same neighborhood but different locale. Join us at Loyal Legion around 4:00PM.

Oh. And if you needed another nudge? Name.com is buying the first round.
