Portland's Surveillance Inventory Draft
Online

In February of last year, Portland's City Council passed a surveillance policy resolution to increase transparency and accountability in the use of surveillance technologies in Portland. As part of the resolution, Smart City PDX has been tasked with designing and implementing a citywide inventory of surveillance technologies owned or used by City Bureaus. During the summer, Smart City PDX and the Office of Equity and Human Rights held a series of public events and released a survey to gather input from local communities to help determine what information should be included in the inventory.

After analyzing the public comments, Smart City PDX recently released a draft version of the surveillance technologies inventory specification, which is available here: https://www.portland.gov/bps/smart-city-pdx/surveillance-policy/documents/surveillance-technologies-inventory-specification/download

At this month's meeting, Hector Dominguez, Open Data Coordinator at Smart City PDX, within Portland's Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will join us to discuss the draft surveillance technology inventory specification and to share details of how you can still give input into the inventory.

Come to the meeting, and learn about Portland's surveillance inventory, and bring your questions!

This event is co-hosted by PDX Privacy and Portland's Techno-activism 3rd Mondays. Please RSVP via the Meetup page or by sending an email to [email protected].

Speaker bio:

Hector Dominguez is the Open Data Coordinator at the City of Portland. In 2009, Portland became the first city in the United States to adopt an Open Data Resolution to encourage the expansion of the technological community by promoting open data and partnerships between City government and the public, private and nonprofit sectors, academia, and labor.

UpStart Collective Westside

UPDATE: April Demolicious will be at the new westside UpStart Collective location!

:::::::Applications for April are CLOSED! Please use the form below to apply to pitch in May:::::::::::

Demolicious is back! This monthly pitch event brings together founders and the community to learn about what is being built here and around Portland.

How this all works: If you are a founder, you will apply to pitch here. Don't worry. "Apply" simply means you want to pitch, but there's no real competitive process to be accepted. We just want to see what you're working on before we put you in front of a room full of people.

You will be given 3 minutes to pitch at the event.

The audience will be given a number to text and vote for their favorite one. The one with the most votes will go home with the Demolicious Championship belt.

The belt is not for you to keep as you will have to come back and "defend" it. However, you will be allowed to put your startup sticker (if applicable) on the belt for all to see and to live on forever in infamy!

We will post the projects/companies that will be pitching a week prior to the event. Which means you have until then to fill out the form.

Teams Pitching: Ecobadlandz (defending champ) Social Director Talent Llama Perfect Memory AI Fanwagn Flow Wingman Green Canary Software

Will you be the next founder to pitch!?!

XOXO 2024
through Revolution Hall

Yeah, no kidding! We’re bringing XOXO back this August 22–24 to Revolution Hall in Portland, one last time.

After the last XOXO in 2019, we had decided to start wrapping things up, planning for one final festival in September 2020. Then obviously the pandemic arrived, derailing our plans entirely, and turns out, postponing them for almost four years.

Since 2019, XOXO sat unfinished in our imaginations, while we’ve watched the world continue to become a more challenging place for independent artists and creators. Many in our community are out of work, crushed by widespread layoffs across the media, games, and tech industries. It feels like many technology companies and platforms are doing everything they can to hurt artists instead of supporting them.

More than ever, we need community and solidarity, to hear each other’s stories, to experience and share our work with each other, to come together and organize to make things better.
