My name is Jason Glaspey.
For the most part, I do things on the internets. I also do things offline. The online pays for the offline.
I like to ride bikes with my brother-in-law. Hang out with my son Roman. Go to dinner with my wife. Drink with my friends. Travel with everyone. Internet quietly with nobody bothering me.
I’m currently living in Hood River, which I think is the only place in the world that could have made me leave Portland, which used to be my favorite city ever. Now, it’s Hood River, and I’m lucky enough to live there.
I internet hard, damn hard.
I love tiny startups. The kind without funding. It’s my specialty and I help people do the same at events called Tiny Startup Camp.
I also like small startups, and young ones. Which is why I’m a mentor at PIE (the Portland Incubator Experiment). I’m also lucky enough to get to call myself a co-founder, and when I’m in Portland, I work from here.
I write about what I come across, what I’m up to, and how I feel. Some of it may be even be of interest to others.
When I’m not adding content here, I’m currently working on:
- paleoplan.com – A membership site providing information and resources for those following the Paleo Diet.
- tinystartupcamp.com – a 2-day event helping people learn what it takes to start non-funded, online, highly scalable startups.
- PIE – A tech incubator/accelerator thing in NW Portland helping startups get started.
Past projects/jobs in some state or another
- Urban Airship – Full-time product manager at Urban Airship, where we power the world’s best mobile apps.
- subscriptiontools.com – A website dedicated to providing tools, information, and training on running paid-subscription and paid-membership websites.
- getbetterat.com – This is my personal archive of questions I’ve found or created answers to online. Little chunks of code, or terminal commands, or tutorials to fix those things that bug you about the web/computers. In one place for easy re-finding
- SOLD in 2010 unthirsty.com – a happy hour finder created with Matt King. NOTE: I mention we sold it because I have no idea what the current owner will do with it. If it looks like poop, works like poop, or is poop, it’s not my fault. I didn’t sell him poop.
- SOLD in 2010 bacn.com – a bacon online retail website with t-shirts, bacon, and other paraphernalia. Made with Scott Kveton and Michael Richardson. NOTE: I mention that we sold this site because it has been drastically redesigned since we sold it. Kinda looks like poop now :(
- drivinglines.com – a car review site Stefan Lombard and myself ran for several years with new car reviews. We are no longer reviewing cars. :/
