I had the pleasure to chat with Urban Scout (aka Peter Bauer) for a number of hours yesterday. He runs a non-profit, writes a blog, has a book he just published.
Check out his book on his site and help fund his book tour on Kickstarter.
I could write for a while about Urban Scout for a while but, I think the videos are far more entertaining and also nature is calling.

I wish I had more time to have a few more conversations with people as all sorts of interesting folks showed up for this tournament.
The following three conversations are posted in order of when I did them. If you want to view all three in sequence I made a player at the bottom of this page for your convenience.
Bowen went on to win the tournament. Read more about the tournament at Crazy Flipper Fingers site. I’ll be posting a map of our walks along with some more details eventually and perhaps even a scavenger hunt. Can you spot a flying Mario in one of these videos?
And all three conversations in a player for your viewing pleasure.
You know that feeling you get when you sit down and watch a few really good TED talks in a row?
That’s my feeling after conversations with ReadWriteWeb’s Marshal Kirkpatrick.
Foursquare informed me that he was only a few blocks away and I knew this was my opportunity to grab a little quality time with Marshall. Check out the video below as Marshall and I have a nice conversation while exploring Portland’s Old Town/China Town.
For a little interactive fun keep your eyes open for:
- A Ducks Fan
- Strip Club
- Space Invader
- Hung Far Low
- A Thing
- and More
And a map of our walk.

After talking with Khris Soden yesterday I ventured up to the Lloyd Center mall to do some shopping at Hot Topic and to just, you know, hang out. While chillin’ in the food court I ran into the majority of the hosts of my favorite radio show of all time Life During Wartime on KBOO. It was a real treat run into them there and I was very fortunate that they had a few minutes to talk with me.
I’ve never done a four person interview with this many people before.
Khris Soden is a Portland historian, artist and pedestrian. He has contributed a lot of work to MoHDI in the past and a long time friend. I was fortunate to get a couple short conversations with him after running into him downtown.
One of the most notable illustrations he did for MoHDI was for the Securi-Pee. Other personal favorites of mine are the Self-Drunk Test Flashcards and the Safe Night-Time Travel for Women.
Check out some more of his work at KhrisSoden.org
And for the first time I give you a map showing our walk.

According to our paths we walked a total of 3478 feet, 1 mile = 5280 feet so we walked .658 of a mile.
I had a moment to talk with Kristi Lovato before an open mic comedy show at the Brody on Wednesday night.
Interview with Nicole Linde.
I did three walking talking videos with Nicole, then I learned that I can simply link to a nice playlist of the videos for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
Just before Danny left for Sundance, I was fortunate enough to talk with him. He’s a talented artist who tells some interesting stories and funny jokes.
Uh oh, security…
Let’s go for a walk in the rain…
