Colorado Tech Weekly #94: All About Denver, Security and Maybe Even Google Fiber?
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
OK so maybe the Google Fiber excitement is a little premature, but I heard a baseless rumor that it’s going live next week in Boulder but only for people to Instragram pictures of organic food. If you have your own baseless Google Fiber rumor I’d love to hear it.
In my prediction post in December, I predicted that the Colorado’s information security industry would double! With this week’s news about ProtectWise and last week’s news about Webroot, I’m feeling pretty smart so far.
