I’m taking my startup-scene satire “Techlandia” to Portland and San Francisco this fall. I’m still working on finding a venue in Portland. I’ll be at The Costume Shop in San Fran every weekend of Oct. 6-22, 2016.
“Like the IFC television series Portlandia, “Techlandia” is a playful examination of a unique, modern culture through sketch comedy. Quigg addresses how the tech industry seems both ubiquitous and mysterious to outsiders with songs, videos, sketches and anecdotes that often have Seinfeld-esque, ‘what’s-up-with-that’ overtones without the crabbiness.” – Review in Broadway World

Last week I popped by the KPLU FM studios in Seattle for a round of “Job Title Bingo” with radio host Gabriel Spitzer. In the game you pick a word out of each of four “buckets of words” and, when read in order, they give you a brand new, likely-outrageous, tech job title, like Supreme Commander of Cloud Innovation.

You know what I love about snow? It doesn’t make any noise. It makes people move slower and ask each other for help. It begs us to slow down, delight, and feel nature a bit.
The snow this morning is light and will pass soon. My car is stuck with a friend up in north in Edmonds. And, I won’t be able to bike to the gym, I’ll need to walk. While it’s here, the snow has me worried about different things, like personal safety, and rearranging my schedule to allow double or triple time to get places.
I don’t mind because I have the time. It’s Saturday. The best is when it snows on a work day and you have to stay home. I love that. It’s the adult version of a snow day.
I’ll give the snow a glance though it’s very light. I’ll look forward to heavier snow days soon.
