Colorado Tech Weekly #60: The only thing that is constant is change
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Did you know that my headline is a quote attributed to Greek philosopher Heraclitus? I wonder if his friends called him Cletus.
See, this is the best/worst thing about the internet. I was all set to be done with my post, but then I spent 10 minutes learning all about Cletus because the knowledge so readily available. Luckily I was able to regain my train of focus and, speaking of change, I need to get back to my calculus homework.
