- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My million-dollar idea is based on the small-scale "Technology Centers" that exist throughout Spain today. Similar to a public library, these centers are open to the public and offer resources for use, free of charge. The resources are scientific instruments, computers, and technical-support specialists who can help you use them. Engineers and scientists with ideas but no funding use these centers to boot-strap their innovations. The technology centers are affiliated with research institutes and universities (like the "minor leagues") so that good innovations that bubble-up have a place to go for further development. Picture that in a place like Hillsboro!
