0 #1 Terrible Rank DiscrepanciesApril 2010-06-15 11:02:18
I noticed that you have a number of discrepancies in your ranking strategy and I'm quite frankly appalled at your lack of proofing and editing. Some of the time ties are denoted (correctly) by duplicating the rank followed by the next appropriate number had no tie existed (i.e. 34th, 34th, 36th). Other times you (erroneously) list the same score with different ranks (i.e. 38th - 270.4, 39th - 270.4).
This should be an embarrassment to your magazine as it significantly reduces the credibility of your survey. Next year I hope you have your ducks in a row prior to the publication date.

0 #2 Rank discrepanciesBrandon Sawyer 2010-06-15 17:58:37
Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The cause of the discrepancies was that differences in score were obscured by rounding scores up to one decimal point. I have updated the online list with scores carried out to two digits so you can see accurate differences in score that correspond to the ranks. Next year, we will ensure that the list presented to all readers shows enough information to make sense of the rankings.

I'm sorry for any negative impression it may have given about the survey.

Thanks again for your diligent reading of the list.

On April 1 I attended a forum at the University of Portland on the sharing economy. The event featured panelists from Lyft and Airbnb, as well as Portland Mayor Charlie Hales. Asked about the impact of tech-driven sharing economy services. Hales said the new business models are reshaping the landscape. “But,” he added, “I don’t pretend to understand how a lot of this [technology] works.”

Energy Stream

BY LINDA BAKER

Oregon already ranks as the nation’s second largest generator of hydroelectric power. (Washington is No. 1). Now an elegant new installation in Portland is putting an unconventional, sharing economy twist on this age-old water-energy pairing. The new system, launched this winter, uses the flow of water inside city water pipes to spin four turbines that produce electricity for Portland General Electric customers.
