@MileHighSocialMediaClub: If you're reading this, you must be fairly interested in social media, right? Or at least very, very bored and possibly cripplingly lonely. Either way, the Mile High Social Club seems like a place you oughta visit. It's a social network for people in the Rockies who like social networks. Hopefully that isn't too meta for you to wrap your head around. Oh, it is? Then think of it this way: It's other nerds who want to hang out and compare iPhone apps and Twitter war-stories, okay? So follow them -- and check out their website while you are at it.
@PulseonTech: Speaking of nerds and things that make their nerd-parts tingly, this feed is generated by OneRiot's real-time social-media search results on tech topics. So it's like the hottest nerd action going. Oh, and if you're the kind of nerd who isn't so into the tech thing, or maybe just want to supplement your usual diet with yet another flavor of nerdiness, OneRiot offers twenty different RiotFeeds on everything from hipsters (the charmingly named @TightPantsPulse) to conservative politics (@PulseonGOP) at the handy RiotFeed index page.
@TechStars: Did you know Boulder is home to the hot tech incubator/mentorship program TechStars? Well, now you do. These particular Stars offer workspace, capital and hands-on assistance (in the form of advice and encouragement from real people who have already done it) to promising web and software startups. The result helps turn the nerd dreams of today into the nerd realities of tomorrow. And you can keep up with their comings and goings and doings and dreamings in convenient, 140-character Twitter form.
