Colorado Tech Weekly #100: A milestone, new buildings, cool jobs and startups
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
This is my 100th CONSECUTIVE Colorado Tech Weekly post and, frankly, I’m a bit surprised. I have a hard time doing anything consistently so for me to post these stories for 100 consecutive weeks is kind of a huge deal.
Speaking of big deals, Boulder Startup Week starts today. I’m going to the Boulder Beta event tonight, if you’re going I’d love to say high. I’ll also be at the CTA Volunteer Celebration next Monday at their cool, new Commons on Champa office. If you’re going to either one of those events, let me know. I’d love to say “Hi” in the real world.
I want to take a moment to thank all of you that read these posts, share them and talk about them. I don’t make any money off of writing these posts (although that probably would be a good idea). This is not a job that I feel forced to do. I do them to get my name out there and because it’s fun. You make it fun. I started off writing about the “Colorado tech industry” but I have changed it to “Colorado tech community” because there is a really cool community here. THANK YOU!
