Simplifying email testing and analytics 1770_ 9/28/15 - Larry welcomes John Thies, co-founder of Email on Acid a Colorado company that does business around the world and focuses on developing tools that simplify email testing and analytics. "When we started this company, email development was anything but easy. The Internet was full of resources for web developers, but we could hardly find anything to help email developers. So we set out to create a service that would make it easy to find and fix email problems, and give developers and marketers a place to talk about email. We love email (obviously), and are dedicated to making email testing and marketing as simple as possible. Email design and development can be difficult, but we've developed an entire body of content to help you hone your skills and improve your efforts."

Fiscal Reality from One of the country’s most informed economists 1486_ 1/13/14 - For a little shot of reality, we are talking with Alan Beaulieu during his annual economic forecast at the ACG Denver 2014 Opening Luncheon. (Note: We've interviewed Alan several times over the years - be sure to check out his view of the future then and now.) ITR Economics focuses on the U.S. and European economy with offices here and there. Today Alan is talking about fiscal reality, a refreshing look at life as it is. "We started with the Affordable Health Care Act. You may be hearing the administration saying because of Obama Care they have slowed down the rate of rise in healthcare - you'll be seeing headlines about that in numerous sources. Keep in mind that it is a very negligible change and the numbers they're citing are before the healthcare act really came into being, 2014 is the real year of the healthcare act. So the slowdown really has to do with the softness we had in the economy in 2013 than it does with anything else, just a normal part of the economy. We think the healthcare act could be a headwind for consumers if the administration is right and millions of healthy young individuals go to the exchange." One of the country’s most informed economists, Alan Beaulieu, is a principal of ITR Economics™ where he serves as President. He leads the company’s European office and serves as chief economist for numerous U.S. and European trade associations. He is co-author of Make Your Move, a book on profiting in business cycle changes, and is a contributing editor for Industry Week magazine...Listen for more...

Bel-Air, Friday morning 2/27/2015, Leonard Nimoy
1684_ 3/2/15 - DERRIK J. LANG/AP Entertainment Writer |
LOS ANGELES — Leonard Nimoy didn't just leave a lasting impression on the science-fiction genre, he also left his mark on science itself.
Seth Shostak, who researches the possibility of real-world extraterrestrial life as the senior astronomer at SETI Research, recalled that Nimoy was regularly willing to lend the organization a helping hand. When he was asked to narrate a planetarium introduction or appear as a guest at an event, Nimoy did so graciously and never charged.
"That struck me then, and it strikes me now," said Shostak. "If you play a famous alien, you might have little interest in how science is searching for real aliens, but Nimoy was actually interested in the science — and he was always willing to help us out." (w3w3 Interviews) READ MORE

LISTEN: Industry Briefing and High Tech Session Recap 1561_ 6/9/14 - We are at the CTA Industry Briefing & Legislative Session Celebration speaking with JB Holston, Chairman, Sitrion and Co-Chair of CTA's Public Policy Committee to talk about the legislative session and CTA's public policy efforts in general. JB said their committee got together about a year ago and decided to make some changes to effect better results from their efforts. They began by "...identifying the key issues we wanted to talk about well ahead of the next legislative session and the other thing was to start developing relationships with the legislators so that as the session started we could have conversations with folks that knew us, we'd gone to lunch with, had coffee with, talked about some of these issues informally with. That was a big change in the way CTA had been involved in the legislative process and I think it paid big dividends this year." The other speakers were: Erik Mitisek, CEO, CTA; Bill Mueldener, Principal, Hein & Associates; Annette Quintana, CEO, Istonish; Roberta Robinette, President-Colorado, AT&T; Sandra Solin, President and CEO, Capitol Solutions; Nissa Szabo, Industry Affairs Manager, CTA...Listen for more interesting details of this hugely successful public policy committee's work during this legislative session.

There is lightness and joy after brain trauma injuries 1775_ 10/19/15 - If you're a football fan, especially a Cincinnati Bengals fan, you may well recognize Tim Krumrie. After 27 years in professional football and coaching, Tim now serves as Brain Injury Territory Representative for CereScan, the leading functional brain imaging company specializing in processes that assist medical professionals in the detection and quantification of complex brain disorders, such as traumatic brain injury.
Like so many sports personalities and military personnel you've heard about, Tim suffered several concussions as a professional player. Though Tim is quick to point out, this isn't a problem limited to professional sports. Look in the mirror, at your children and your spouse - traumatic brain injuries occur to so many and we're all so susceptible. Tim tells his story with a mission in mind. He's inspired because he's regained his cherished memories, and the peace and happiness that had been lost because of his untreated and undiagnosed brain traumas. Think what this can mean to our returning vets, to the young student who took a spill while perfecting his skateboard moves, the biker, the individual who slipped on the ice or was in a car accident.

Their tenants can redesign their space, incorporate custom furniture builds, and remove or add walls when necessary.

Drives the Colorado economic climate forward 1517_ 3/17/14 - Larry asked for an overview of what CTA is doing. Since Erik Mitisek came on board (as CEO, Colorado Technology Association) last June, "Some of the core things we've done to really amplify CTA's impact is to take a look at public policy and government activity in the state of Colorado. To build a business climate that not only exemplifies the climate that we want to represent to those inside and outside the state - but for companies that are building businesses here in the tech sector - making it easier, more economical and more efficient for them to operate within the government. This year within our public policy strategy we've been really blessed with some great leadership to change that. So as we go into 2014 our public policy activity around advocacy for technology related issues has never been stronger. With a board of over 45 technology leaders that really exemplify the core tech leadership in the state - some of the best CIOs, CEOs and service providers that are leading the tech initiative, both in terms of size and scale, and some of the largest employers in the state are represented on our board. But also the innovation and kind of new technology economy with great entrepreneurs that are on our board as well. That board really exemplifies the excitement of Colorado." Erik said, "I think the new future of CTA is to deeply invest in workforce and talent pipeline, to make sure we are matching workers of tomorrow in Colorado both with relevancy and with consistency inside our core IT workforce."
