Do you know about Switchboard?
It’s a local startup (!), and a place for trusted community classifieds. With Switchboard, you can ask for what you need and offer what you have within a small group of trustworthy people who want to help each other out and solve problems. There are already boards for local groups like the Portland Meat Collective and Women’s Cycling Network.
We just set up the Design Portland board, where you’ll find job offers, computers and equipment for sale, volunteer opportunities, requests to meet up with other designers, and more.
So if you have something to ask or offer — Switchboard it! Let’s grow this resource together.
