Colorado Tech Weekly #292: Automation is Great When It Works

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 week it feels like 2019 is finally starting to kick into gear. It’s one of those weeks where I am REALLY tempted to share more than 10 things but I am stopped only by tradition and sheer stubbornness. However once I start posting these on the cool, new ColoradoTechWeekly.com I will have the option for users to get daily emails of Colorado Tech from me which will, hopefully, add some value for you.

Speaking of emails, as I get things set up for the new site I learned yesterday that my COTechWeekly@gmail.com email has NOT been being forwarded to my email inbox since… August I think. I noticed some cool tips and news stories that you’ve sent that I am very grateful for and very sorry that I’ve been ignoring.

As I get closer to Colorado Tech Weekly #300 which will be the last Colorado Tech Weekly post on ScottPantall.com I am increasingly wondering if I have any idea what I’m doing.

Look forward to the new and improved ColoradoTechWeekly.com and have a great week!

Colorado Tech Weekly #227: Influencing Tech News and Forgetting Makers

Colorado Tech Weekly Binary FlagColorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10  technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!

I like to think that these posts and the news I share on social media from Colorado tech companies helps Colorado tech reporters find and focus on stories. As you can probably tell I’m a big fan of their work and I like to think I contribute to it in some small way. So I was excited that, after I asked in last Monday’s post “What kind of effect would having a large Amazon campus in Colorado have on our tech community?”, the Denver Business Journal posted this article on Tuesday: Amazon HQ2 could actually help Denver’s talent-starved tech sector. I like to think Greg Avery was answering my question for me. If not, it’s really good timing.

I’m a big fan of creators of every kind, whatever they’re called! Most of my heroes are artists, makers, hackers, tinkerers, inventors, cosplayers, game-makers, podcasters, etc. so imagine my surprise that I somehow completely missed promoting the Denver Maker Faire in last week’s Colorado Tech Weekly post! I’m shocked that I missed promoting it because I would have absolutely gone to it if I wasn’t at work all weekend. If you see, or write, a good recap of the Denver Maker Faire, please send it my way.

Have a great week!
