The broadcasting goes on

Still thinking about Jaime. So are lots of other people in Portland media; she was well-liked. I'll find out later what happened to her; even if I knew enough to speculate, that would be bad of me and I won't do it. Just the basics suck enough: suddenly she's no longer with us, and she was young.

So: only so much we can know, and only so much we can do...except get on with plans, and hold Jaime in our thoughts.

I hope to see part of something cool starting tonight. At 8:00 Pacific Time, the guys of Geek in the City will start The Marathon of Pain, a 12-hour podcast from a room in inner SE Portland's Jupiter Hotel. On camera for 12 hours, until 8:00 a.m. Sunday. All sorts of Portland media people will appear, and drink, and talk. Shenanigans will (not may) ensue, though the exact nature of said shenanigans can't be predicted.

Here's the Facebook page, explaining this better than I am. Below is the link to the actual show that's 2 1/2 hours away from starting:

I hope to make it sometime tonight to the Jupiter Hotel and be close to what's happening, and visit with people who aren't on air at that moment. I even napped this midday to be more ready for it.

This should be good. Good. We can use that.
