Colorado Tech Weekly #165: The technology isn’t the hard part

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 listen to a few tech-related podcasts and read more than a few tech blogs. One of the things that always gets me is that most of the problems discussed about technology have very little to do with technology and a lot to do about what we want to do with technology. Take the Olympics for example. It is technologically possible for anyone in the world to watch any Olympic event, live or recorded, on any device that supports video. The only thing that prevents this from happening are the partnerships and business deals that are used to profit from, and recoup the costs of, creating and distributing the video.

Technology is easy. People are difficult. The only reason we relate this problems to technology is because technology requires us to spell out the specifics since computers only do what we tell them to do, not what we mean for them to do.

Anyways, last week’s news was all good. I suggest spending some time exploring the posts in the Colorado Tech Tour Summary link.

Colorado Tech Weekly #95: GoCodeColorado and More Security News

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 am so excited/nervous/apprehensive/scared/excited for the GoCodeColorado Apps Challenge Weekend this weekend. This will be the first time I say in public “I know how to code. Give me a problem to fix” and just typing that makes my imposter syndrome kick in. Then yesterday I saw who the five finals judges are and that kicked my excitement/nervousness into overdrive. Following tech news in Colorado for 95 weeks, these 5 people are definitely leaders in the Colorado tech community and it’s so awesome that they volunteer their time for this.

So I’ll be spending my entire week at my laptop getting homework done and trying to learn all the things to prepare for the weekend. Wish me luck!
