TechStars, Boulder, and the Rockies

I just wandered down to Seth’s office to see if he managed to get tickets to the World Series.  He asked everyone in the office to fire up the Rockies website and keep hitting refresh until someone got on to the ticket buying site.  No luck – and Seth has a big frown on this face – but he’s still cuddling his Red Sox jacket.

The Boulder Daily Camera has a great wrap up story on the TechStars experience this summer.  Of course you have to have a stupid login to be able to read it – but at least it’s free.  Oh – and yet another TechStars company got funded – this time it’s SocialThing.  Congrats guys!

Finally, I’d be doing all the people in the world that eat things a disservice if I forgot to mention that Kimbal Musk’s restaurant The Kitchen was written up in USAToday as one of the 10 great places to break bread and make friends.  Now that our office is in downtown Boulder, I occasionally have days where I eat two of my three meals at The Kitchen.  I know Kimbal and his co-founder Hugo are pleased.  As am I.

  • Tell Seth it’s probably just as well, because there’s no crying in baseball and Sox fans will surely be crying.

  • Hilarious! They suspended ticket sales because of “computer malfunction”

    “…virtually all the tickets are still available, due to a computer system malfunction. He says only several hundred tickets were sold.”

    Perhaps they should read up on “load testing”:

  • “stupid login to read” the Daily Camera site. Oh yeah, drives me crazy that their password system is also iPhone incompatible for some odd reason. Try as I might, I can’t get logged in…

    Also, you’re right, The Kitchen is one of the new gems of Pearl Street Mall, Brad. And, heck, any time you need someone to break bread with, you have my number!

  • Brad, beware of the chocolate croissants. Oh my, the temptation!!!

  • I will have to checkout the Kitchen next time I am in town.
