This is such simple advice, but I have seen all these mistakes. I love the approch of Scott Stratten’s UnMarketing Keynote at the NAMP conference, discussing QR Codes and the problem with them. Just wanted to share his genius with you. To book Scott to speak at your eventhttp://www.UnMarketing.com/Services/Speaking/ or call 1-888-580-9969
Martin Cooper; “You should not be a slave to your telephone,” he said. “The technology is there to serve you, not the other way around. If the technology is not making your life better — if it is robbing you of experiences in the real world that you would otherwise be enjoying — then you are working for it, when it should be working for you.”

Saturday October 23, 2010, was Portland’s 4th annual Thrill the World Zombie Walk. Around 200 participants performed to Michael Jackson’s Thriller in Pioneer Courthouse Square, followed by a Zombie March through the streets of downtown Portland, finishing up by Saturday Market in the waterfront park.
Thrill the World had comparatively modest beginnings. On Sunday, October 29th, 2006, Thrill Toronto’s 62 zombies officially set the first Guinness World Record for “Largest Thriller Dance!” (in one location).
Thrill The World 2009 had 34 nations and more than 250 cities from all around the world participating. As a side effect of the 2009 Thrill the World, the events raised over $100,000 USD for 80 charities.
(Thrill the World information from Wikipedia )
The weather was kind and stayed in the drizzle range for the dance and most all of the walk. There were 200 participants for the Thrill the World dance and I have to guess four to six times that many for the walk.
There was a wide range of ages, from retired folks to little kids, all having a blast playing Zombies, including whole families.
One of the things I love about this city, is the people of Portland, who never pass up the opportunity to dress up and go out and play. I am so looking forward to next year.

Happy Halloween, to all!

Gartman said that many of the coin-selling firms that have increased their television advertising this year as the price of gold has soared which stood near a record $1,200-an-ounce at the end of last week, have a markup “so egregiously high the only thing you can call them is shysters.”
The city of Portland, OR does love it’s pirates. On any given day you are likely to see one walking down the street. But, on September 20th, at the annual Pirate Festival the city showed the world just how much it loves pirates, by breaking the Guinness Book world record for the most pirates gathered in one place.
“The current record for the most people dressed as pirates is 1,140, set at Heide-Park, in Germany, on 6/2/2007. Portland Pirate Festival draws enough scallywags decked out in Pirate finery, will be sure to break the record for the most people d…ressed as pirates gathered in one location.”
THE CURRENT RECORD IS NOW BROKEN!! 1655 pirates (including Lauren and Hannah) at the Portland Pirate Fest 9/20/2009 Arrr matties!
And top notch entertainment
