Colorado Tech Weekly #70: The spirit of cooperation stays true
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
If you have spent any time in the business networking world (networking with people, not machines), you’ve seen dishonest enthusiasm. You’ve seen the mouth-only smiles, heard the distracted golf claps and felt the half-assed handshakes when announcing good news about your company. While I only have an outsider’s online view of the Colorado tech community right now, when I do see enthusiasm for other peoples’ news it appears to be genuine enthusiasm! It’s a great thing to see!
