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!

There are some weeks where I find a theme in the stories I share. There are other weeks where I just rant about something else before presenting the headlines. This week I’m not sure what to do so read all these stories and consider going to as many of these events as you can because I can’t decide.

Colorado Tech Weekly #253: The Double-Edged Sword of ‘Others In Your Niche’

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!

Reading tech news now that I am working full-time in the Colorado tech community is a different experience. The company I work for is involved in the payments processing space. This week, 2 companies who are involved in the same space are sharing news. The cool thing about other people being involved in your niche is that it validates your motivations. Other people being involved shows that you are in a good place. The down side to others being involved in your niche is the inherent competition. I prefer promoting community over competition, but when there is competition I want it to be healthy and supportive because it’s more fun for me that way.

Have a great week!
