One big difference between Madison and Portland is that it is tough to find stuff in Madison, unlike Portland. Portland is a big enough city where it has its own Citysearch and Craigslist is used a lot more. Madison just fits into the “National” citysearch, and craigslist is pretty empty.
Portland as the Mercury and Willamette Weekly, and other local papers, and really the only one I have seen here in Madison is the Isthmus, and there is a Madison magazine as well, but there are slim pickin’s, even in online zines or blogs in Madison. Smaller city = smaller footprint I guess…
Either that or I just haven’t found the hidden gems yet 🙂

Hey you should help me get a presence going in Madison on Public Press.. you can help me add some of the cool spots and it will bring in some more Madisonites (Madisonians?) to the site via google etc. Next update of the site is going to have RSS aggregation so you can add any cool madison blogs you find too.
i tried to start something, but I couldn’t choose Madison, only Milwaukee was the closest place..
Should be fixed now, checkout http://madison.publicpress.org
i have a secret for you…there are no hidden gems!! another reason to move back to portland. i mean…happy new year buddy!
