We recently had the pleasure to provide testimonials on the National Career Readiness Certificate for the Oregon Employment Department. We use the NCRC here at Concentric Sky as a part of our hiring process, to ensure that applicants meet basic qualifications.
I just recently discovered the app Libations. They're an app that lets you rate drinks ranging from wine, whiskey, tea, coffee, and beer. I have been waiting a long time for an app like this. It's your own personal drink journal, great for looking back on when you can't decide what to drink, or when you can't remember the name of that last delicious craft beer you had.

I always struggle finding a nice background for my device, and I always want a change of background once every few days. It’s hard to keep looking out for backgrounds that fit your taste, don’t over clutter your screen, and are nice to look at. Since I am quite interested in space and everything related to it, I like to have a nice background of a starry sky. Luckily for me, Concentric Sky has released Astronomy Picture of the Day, a high resolution photo app for iPhone and iPad that brings you the latest and best photos from infinity and beyond, all in collaboration with NASA.
Britannica Kids: Ancient Rome is just one of the many outstanding apps provided by Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.. This app provides an excellent resource for you, your children, and (if you're a teacher), your students to use to learn more about ancient Rome outside of the classroom. Learn facts, play puzzles, watch videos, and interact with an app that goes far beyond basic encyclopedias.
It’s a common lament that there are no jobs in Eugene, especially no tech jobs. Many people think they have to go to Seattle, Portland or San Francisco to find a job in the tech sector.
And you know what? They’re wrong.
There aren't many hobbits in Oregon, but there are a lot of technology companies. Rick Turoczy put it best on his site Silicon Florist:
Apparently middle Oregon has a great deal in common with Middle Earth. The Eugene startup scene just launched Silicon Shire, and it’s an interesting visualization of what’s happening in the startup scene.
What does a huge dome that pulsates with colored LED lights when music is playing have to do with keeping the creativity flowing at Concentric Sky, a Eugene Web development firm?
Everything, it turns out.
The arrival of a new generation of well-heeled techies triggers laments about counterculture ruin in the Nevada desert. Sorry, but you can put a sock in it.
