Colorado Tech Weekly #122: True Crime Edition

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!

You probably don’t know this, but as much as I love talking about the Colorado technology community, I don’t work in the industry. Last week I celebrated my 10 year anniversary as a 911 police dispatcher and, even better, I still have my sanity! At least that’s what the voices tell me. I like when the tech industry and law enforcement work together well like in the Level 3 story below. I am not as much of a fan of the SofTec story, but it’s good to see people like that get caught.

Colorado Tech Weekly #106: Is there an area of tech that Colorado does not do well?

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!

The short answer is “No.” Every once in a while the headlines I compile point out how many different ways Colorado is involved in technology. In this week’s headlines alone we have wireless tech, social media, hardware, startups and 3-D printing. It’s a little mind blowing to think of all the things that are included in tech in Colorado. Then when I try to think of all the money and all the different kinds of people involved my brain shorts out and I have to stare at the wall for a few minutes to let it reboot.
