    Welcome to the world of Portland’s creative innovators, the world of Showcase PDX. Our first program shines a spotlight on a cross-section of entrepreneurs that are contributing to the economic future of the region while fostering the values that make Portland a top destination: community, sustainability, and holistic living. On this show, host Michkael Baker interviews three innovators: Michael Lynn from the worker-owned, community-focused coffee house, Muddy Waters; life and business coach Angel True, who provides guidance to help people love what they do and do what they love; and Gibran McDonald, a tea “composer,” who mixes herbal “melodies” to harmonize the body and soul. In addition, see profiles of local entrepreneurs Wyatt Woods and Donald Tyler, owners of Holy Kakow, purveyor of all-natural, high-quality cocoa powders and syrups; and singer/songwriter Keegan Smith, whose music celebrates and represents the essence of the Portland experience. And we’re just getting started! For more information, check out our comprehensive website, ShowcasePDX.com, your portal to a brighter future for Portland

                In our daily lives we are surrounded by data, much of which we create ourselves. GPS chips in our mobile devices, purchase records from credit card use, transit payments with RFID, and more all add up to paint a picture of our daily lives. But for the most part we do not have access to this data—even though we create it, we are not able to use it to our advantage. At the same time, there is a growing awareness around how our movements and behaviors impact our personal carbon impact. We are beginning to realize that the actions we take on a daily basis have a cumulative impact on the health of our environment. But along with this awareness comes confusion about what steps we can take to change our behavior. How might we access our personal data in a way that helps us change behaviors that impact to our carbon footprint? How might we do this in a fun, engaging way? BLVD is our answer to these questions. Simply put, it is an online social network game that gives people access to their carbon data, and provides incentives to change their behavior, with the overall goal of reducing carbon output.

                      Transportation and simple living are two of my favorite soapboxes. With this project, I want to dispel the notion that bikes are difficult, dangerous, impractical, etc. So I rode my bike, with an empty keg in tow, to my favorite local craft brewery (Stone Brewing). We had a couple of beers, and talked to the folks there about their commitment to sustainability. Then I loaded up a fresh keg, and pedaled it home 17 miles over some consequential elevation changes. I don't expect everyone to drag a 160lb keg up a steep hill on a bicycle, but I see my neighbors driving 1/4 mile from their homes to go to Vons, carrying their groceries away in plastic bags. Then they drive back to the same shopping center to get their requisite exercise at 24hr fitness. I just want to convince them to bike or walk that 1/4 mile to Vons to fill up a backpack with useful brew. At once they'll save time and money, and reduce dependence on oil and pollution going into our oceans.
