Colorado Tech Weekly #47: So Much News, There’s News About News
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
58. Cincuenta y ocho. That is how many stories I had to choose from to create my list of 10 stories for this week. That’s a ton of news!
Part of the reason for all the news are due to the awesome news sources I follow. Congratulations to Michael Davidson of Xconomy for his 2 first place awards in the “Top of the Rockies” journalism competition run by the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Also congratulations to InnovatioNews for their 5 “Top of the Rockies” awards. You can find their stories at http://www.xconomy.com/boulder-denver/ and http://innovationews.com/
