Colorado Tech Weekly #51: Adtech thrives, a #boulderwin and Colorado gets a new CIO
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
With my blog approaching on year of consistency I’ve been toying with the idea of adding some advertising to cover some costs so this week’s headlines are perfect!
Next week will be my 52nd CTW post. That’s one year of weekly posts! I feel a little strange approaching this milestone because half of me wants to make it a big deal, but the other half knows this is still just the beginning. I’m definitely going to have to do a recap post about it though to figure out if I’m still doing what I meant to do.
