Colorado Tech Weekly #304: Selling Shovels
Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
There’s a fun saying about selling shovels. It’s along the lines that if you find yourself in a gold rush it’s better to sell the shovels than look for gold. This week’s articles make me realize just how much tech is often the shovel regardless of the rush.
Have a great week!
