Thanks!  Al Gore's Current TV seems to invite people to submit their podcasts to be broadcast on his cable TV shows. Some of the history of Al Gore's cable TV enterprise is in this article - Al Gore's $100 Million Makeover; just in case you encounter something interesting enough to capture on video.

The last time I was there I liked the port.  Being a navy guy, I like ports.
Well i didnt get a chance to see the Port of Portland ... but i have planned to go get some shots of the Port of Seattle soon.  To tide you over here are some shots of a train going by in the Port of Kalama, Washington which looks like a logging town.  Taking this picture so near to the train going by made me want to get a youtube of the drama of a train rushing twards me ... stay tuned.

This train project ... which i prolly will do ... is more of a test of the eye of the camera, than any persuit of what is interesting.  I want to see if a point and shoot camera will capture the drama of a train rushing twards and then passing you.  I know the drama is there because i have stood there several times.  But there is not much to the shot ... just get as close to a train track ... setup the tri pod ... and wait for the train to come along.  Only problematic part of the shot is knowing when the train is comming.

Mark de LA says
Another problematic part of the experiment is not having the wind of the passing train or the Bernoulli effect suck you into the picture! A third might be to remember to remove your toes from the railroad track.
