Digest #201

Thank you to our newest partner, Buoy Labs! As you already know, it takes a village, and I appreciate all of our supporting partners.

In the not too distant past, Buoy didn't exist, Edge didn't exist, and Looker was a very small startup located in the back of the Cruzio building. Fast forward to today! Check out the news from those local startups, and more.

If you're not checking our events and jobs pages regularly, you're missing out. Our jobs page has more traffic than any page in our website.

As usual, there's more. Scroll down and start reading.
