Episode 98: Hatch Detroit, Rocket Fiber, Daily Detroit and Andrew The Man Expert

0

We had a pretty full house for episode 98 of our weekly live podcast.  With Hatch Detroit in to talk about their $50,000 contest for the third year in a row to what Rocket Fiber has going on downtown and into the world of things downtown and a little mayhem with the Daily Detroit crew and some insight from Andrew The Man Expert that had us all rolling and unable to recover, it was just simply a blast of a night…

ITintheDnewspaper06292015b2The latest news and events that caught our attention, as well as our own event on Wednesday, July 1st kicked off the show.

From ultra conservative religious southerners to Donald Trump, who’s having the worst week?  Drones getting shot down.  Our insane weekend.  All kinds of whacky nonsense in this week’s round up.

This Wednesday, July 1st we’ll be hitting The Whisky Parlor, which is on the 2nd floor of Grand Trunk downtown.  Can’t wait to check it out, and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone there.  It’s located at 608 Woodward Avenue, again up on the 2nd floor.

5pm start time.  No cover charge to get in.  No speeches.  No agenda.  No sales pitches.  Just networking with some of the best and brightest folks here in and around the metro Detroit information technology community.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

20150629_215709Segment two dove in with Vittoria from Hatch Detroit.  For the third year running, she joined us to talk about their great $50,000 contest for entrepreneurs downtown.  Lots of great information in here if you’re looking to apply – what sorts of businesses they’re looking for, tips and tricks on how to best get through the selection process, and a bunch more good data.  Applications are open now, so head on over to their website and get rolling: http://hatchdetroit.com/

Our third segment focused in on Marc Hudson from Rocket Fiber.  By now, you’ve surely heard about their efforts downtown to increase internet bandwidth and capacity…but you might not know about everything else they have going on with television, or how you can get your neighborhood / town on their list of places to investigate coming to, or their work with more than just the business district downtown.  Give it a listen, and then hit them up at http://www.rocketfiber.com/

20150629_215706Segment four was…well, it was sort of a free for all.  We had the Daily Detroit crew talking about some recent shenanigans.  Andrew the Man Expert chimed in with his wit, humor and views on everything going on throughout the night and more.  Just a blast of a segment, and it’s been a long time since we’ve laughed that hard…but be warned, this is definitely a segment full of topics for the 18 and over crowd.  Catch Daily Detroit at http://www.dailydetroit.com/, and you can read some more of Andrew’s wit and wisdom in articles like this one: http://www.brobible.com/life/article/douchebags-you-see-out-at-night/
