Colorado Tech Weekly brings you the top 10 technology stories of the past week and the best upcoming local tech events every Monday morning!
Friends, we still live in the future! This week we have stories about satellites, blockchain, robotics and a mission to Saturn! It’s the future!! DBJ also did a profile on Luke Swanson and his role in the Denver tech community. It’s a great reminder of how we don’t just have a Colorado tech industry here, we have a community that’s made up of individuals who respect each other like Luke and like me and like you.
Have a great week and happy Independence Day!
