I demoted my Apple Watch

I’ve been debating whether to continue using the Apple Watch for a while now. AppleWatch has definitely gotten better since launch, but still hasn’t found a killer app/feature.

Dan gets on stage and starts talking, and as I lean over to Vanessa, to ask why he’s vamping, and where’s Kat our emcee, I realize what he’s doing. This awesome group of people, behind my back, decided to bring me from the background to the fore. Before I finish that story though. Ignite Denver is eight years old. In eight years we’ve held 25 events all around downtown Denver, from bars…
