Hi! I’m Brennan.

I do a lot of things. Mostly coding, reading, writing, and talking to people. I recently got rid of my home Internet connection and phone data (the boomers are correct about consumer tech), so there’s been more yard work as I attempt to gradually reclaim the Colberg Nature Preserve™, as my wife sarcastically calls our backyard.

I’m also running for the City Council of Corvallis, OR (the 10th-largest city in Oregon, home of Oregon State University, and westmost city of >50k people in the lower 48) this fall. You can find my campaign website here. I think increasing housing production via regulatory reform would solve a lot of our problems for free, so that’s my main goal. It may also be helpful to our economy if we stop being actively hostile to potential business investments. Our city flag is internet-famous for sucking, too, and should be changed.

You can find my business website here, and my blog/newsletter here. The only social media I use is @BrennanColberg on X, though I’m trying to do that less. If you want to get ahold of me and have my phone number, call or text that— it’s the only way to send a notification to my phone. I try to check email once per weekday; you can reach out about anything to contact@brennancolberg.com and I might reply.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
