Why I Live in Portland

Ted Leung writes about Portland...

Being at the convention center is helping me to discover more about Portland. The free ride zone for the Max train is a thing of beauty. I had thought Seattle's bus free ride zone was good, but the Max train beats that all to pieces. Combine that with Portland's short city blocks, and wonderful downtown, and it's all very appealing. I've had lots of conversations (usually on the way to meals) about how nice Portland is.
This is where we are supposed to tell you how much it rains in Portland. That's a tough sell this time of year... typically nothing but blue skies for weeks.

But there is a reason OSCON is not held in Portland in November. 8^)

Tell me about it. I lived on the Portland State campus in 1997 and that was the most depressingly rainy fall of my entire life.

Admit it, you really like living there because it's a tax haven :)
