A great new local web site launched today, with a focus entirely on Portland. You can find it at www.theportlander.com.
The founders were sick and tired of reading the same old boring news on the local news channel web sites, finding 100 listings for Taco Bell when they searched for a good Mexican restaurant in Portland, and never being able to find a relevant events calendar.
So they did something about it and created ThePortlander.com. It is a user generated site, so the content is only as good as you are. The cool thing is that users vote on stories, blogs, events, etc to move them up on the list. The more votes, the more relevant to users and the easier to find.
Give it a try and tell a friend. Good luck to the guys of ThePortlander.com.
