Colorado Tech Weekly #122: True Crime Edition
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
You probably don’t know this, but as much as I love talking about the Colorado technology community, I don’t work in the industry. Last week I celebrated my 10 year anniversary as a 911 police dispatcher and, even better, I still have my sanity! At least that’s what the voices tell me. I like when the tech industry and law enforcement work together well like in the Level 3 story below. I am not as much of a fan of the SofTec story, but it’s good to see people like that get caught.
