I went to a meeting of the Corvallis chapter of the Software Association of Oregon
tonight. A couple of people who owned a local company called Green Pasture Software
(cached copysite now redirects) spoke about selling the company to IBM
. They told some great fish-out-of-water stories about small town software guys negotiating with big blue, and had some general business advice. Overall it was great to meet some people and hear a bit of what's going on with tech in Corvallis.
