The upcoming total solar eclipse shows how far technology has come

Who’s excited for the total solar eclipse? You know, the one that’s supposed to stretch from the western coast to the eastern coast of the U.S.? The last time an eclipse spread across a nation is was 1918 and it’s safe to say that technology has changed just a little bit since then.

The solar phenomenon will take place on Aug. 21, 2017—and you better not blink because the eclipse will only last for about two minutes. If you do blink and somehow miss the eclipse entirely, you won’t see it happen again until Aug. 12, 2045 which is, like, really far away.

As we approach last few months of 2016 (a scary thought, I know), we’re taking some time to reflect on our year so far and start thinking about how we can do even better in 2017. This blog is first and foremost a resource for you, so we’d like to find out more about what works, what doesn’t, and how we can make the blog a better resource for our readers.

Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals

Before you read about the greatest event in the history of ever, here’s the entire list of Denver Startup Week Events. They are free and they are awesome. Almost as awesome as this…

During an event as big as Denver Startup Week, it’s hard to stand out. You’ve got to be a tech legend parachuting from an armada of neon airships just to get a glance. But we think we have something better. We have Startup Stories as Told Through Dramatic Portrayals, a show featuring Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and startup luminaries Ashley Kingsley, Bing Chou, and Julie Nirvelli.

These panelists will share their stories while a team of improv comics acts out the narrative.
