Colorado Tech Weekly #121: Hey! You put Startups in my Tech!

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

Hey! There’s tech in my startups!

I’ve come to the conclusion there is no way to pay attention to Colorado tech news without diving in deep to the Colorado startup news. They’re completely intertwined. Last week was Denver Startup Week, this coming weekend is Western Colorado Startup Weekend and the amount of technology-centric businesses involved with these events is amazing. They are great ways to find out what is going on in the Colorado tech community.

Colorado Tech Weekly #119: Boulder, Leaves and Change

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

“The only constant is change” said someone who says things that other people repeat. This is CTW #119 and by pure coincidence I drove up Highway 119 yesterday to look at the changing leaves. I also drove through Boulder to come back home after driving through the mountains. It also appears that most of our tech news this week goes through Boulder.

You know all the cool buzzwords: “internet of things”, “wearables”, “smart watches”, “drones” and guess what? It’s all happening in Colorado!

This is a week where I had the hardest time ONLY posting 10 news items. I would suggest you follow me on Twitter to see all the news stories I want to put in these posts but am unable to due to my own artificial constraints. Granted I could add more stories, but then I’d add too much so I’ll just stick with 10.
