Colorado Tech Weekly #112: Every kind of tech in every kind of way
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
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.
