End of Portland Summer Thoughts

We’re wrapping up the summer and lotsa vacations this month here at BootsnAll. Here are some exciting projects and excellent travel guides/sites that we have been building this summer in our Portland office.

Check out our new Italy Travel Guide. It is getting near being ready to launch and has loads of information for peeps going to Italy. Well done Jessica.

The Offside Soccer Blog has about 60 blogs on it now. Insane growth and tonnes of passionate soccer bloggers.

Carrie, our Business Travel Blogger has been cranking out interesting posts for almost a year now. Now that I am do “biz travel” quite a bit I find her posts helpful. Maybe you will too.

Cheers – off to Chicago for the weekend. Cubs game on Saturday and Fantasy Football draft on Monday nite.

Geography does not interfere with work

I just read Mr. Feld’s thoughts on geography/work and it reminded me of my hopes and dreams regarding this…

I am not an investor/VC like him – but I do manage the BootsnAll Travel Network and when we started some almost 9 years ago, we definitely thought that in a few years – distance/geography would be less of a barrier to work that it was in the 90s. Today, over 1/2 of BTN’s staff and contractors don’t work in the home office (Portland, OR) or do only part of the time. We are able to collaborate and track each other’s movements easily with the tools available today.

The good part of this is each person has more control over their time. i.e. not punching in at 9 and out at 5. The same thing could also be termed a bad part though – always being connected to each other and work. See this new NoSo Social Network as an example of being connected too much.

For me, I am not a social network junky, though I do participate in them and I am super happy and thankful to have the tools that we have today and be able to connect with folks all over the globe from the comfort of my desk. It makes travelling and connecting with other that much better.

We invented Professional Blogging ;)

We created a new category of work back in 2003 called blogging. Folks didn’t think that would work out.

from Jason Calacanis.

I enjoy reading this guys blog and he has a lot of good ideas and shares great stuff. It is unreal how much he thinks of himself at times. To say that “we created a new category of work in 2003 called blogging” is just plain inaccurate.

We were working/blogging well before 2003 as were lotsa of others. It is not unusual to see such a lack of humility from a yank entrepreneur of course. Maybe I should start blabbing and making stuff up. Folks just might believe it.
