      Colorado Springs faces tough question: Where have all the workers gone?

      On the surface, the numbers are encouraging: The Colorado Springs area's unemployment rate declined by nearly a third, from 7.8 percent in October 2013 to 5.4 percent in October of this year.

Unfortunately, that chatter has drowned out straight discussion about the part of the executive order that deals with high tech workers and about why immigration reform is needed in the first place. For those of us in the startup community, this reform is particularly interesting.

      3 Ways To Attract Women To Your Technology Company

      As it exists today, the tech industry may not be as attractive or welcoming for women as it is for men.
