Colorado Tech Weekly #1, June 16 2013: The NSA Read This Before It Was Written

BinaryColoradoFlagThe government is in your social media. Get an abert squirrel shirt for supporting Black Forest Fire victims. Dish misses out on Sprint. CTA promotes entreprenuership. Colorado IT gals rock. I learn some cloud computing. Apple brings iOS7. Microsoft brings the games. Sony pulls no punches. Warp speed may be possible, or may be a broken link.

This is my first of what I hope will be many posts about technology news with a Colorado focus. I will attempt to pick 10 news articles for the week that best reflect Colorado tech news.
