I blew some dust off our WordPress files and discovered this gem that was originally posted on January 30th, 2008 by Brendon. Listening to the interview again brings back memories of the history of this blog . . . good times.

I tell you what, it’s great to be a cyclist in the Portland area. Jonathan Maus has been running BikePortland.org for several years, and during that time it has become the online hub of Portland area biking community. I had the opportunity to sit down with him in his Portland office and talk about the site. Check out the cool mural on his office wall!
As a bike hack, this interview is a little bit of an abstraction. But I think it points to a larger truth that the Internet has become a place where niche interests can find ready community and organizational power.
In this interview, Jonathan talks about the genesis of BikePortland.org and how it serves the broader biking community in Portland. And he talks about his favorite bike hack at the very end of the interview (if you just can’t wait). Click here to start the video, it’s 9 minutes and 47 seconds long.
