Looking for a Part-Time Operations Person

I’m looking for a Boulder/Denver based operations person to work part time with one of our companies.  Depending upon successful engagement, it could turn out to be for more than one company. Basic qualifications: 1. Strong finance ability.  Not CFO, level, but able to keep 100% of the books of a small startup; 2. HR. …

Has Governor Ritter Lost His Mind?

Apparently, the answer is yes, if reports are true that he is trying to fast track a bill that would create a special new tax for Colorado-based software companies. End result?  Job killing.  While I usually am skeptical of politicians decreeing that “taxes kill jobs” (I don’t think it’s always clear), this one is very…

Diary of a 3L Trying to Find a Job

One of my former students, Daniel Fredrickson has started a blog chronicling his quest to secure employment in what seems to be the toughest legal hiring environment ever. He’s a smart guy and I’m really excited to see what he writes about his travails.  He promises that he’ll mix in some fun along the way,…

Maredsous Trippel Beer Review

When I started reviewing beers, I had two evil plans that lurked beneath the idea. 1. I wanted folks to send me ideas of what to drink next; and 2. I wanted really nice folks to send me free beer. Mission accomplished.  (But that doesn’t mean quit sending me things.) Today, I review this wonderful…

Need A Terms of Service or Privacy Policy – Quick and Easy?

My friends at LegalRiver.com have released two document generators for quickly and easily assembling standard terms of service and privacy policies. Much like other document generators, you fill in a few pieces of relevant info and “boom” (to quote John Madden, whom I am sure is following this blog closely) you are done. Check the…

Saison Dupont Brasserie Beer Review

This is a very accessible beer even to those who think that Stella Artois represents great Belgian beer making.  (This is a nice way of saying even if you drink Coors light, this beer is drinkable for you).  There is a lot of fruit here, in fact, I found myself sampling the nose as long…

Them Crooked Vultures

No, this isn’t another lawyer blog, rather it’s a long time coming music review.  I’m totally digging Them Crooked Vultures.  Their debut and self-titled album is excellent. The band is fronted vocally and guitar-wise by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age Fame and backed up by Dave Grohl on drums and John Paul…

Hot Topics In Private Company Law

I must be on the rubber chicken circuit again, as I have yet another talk coming up – this one to (gasp!) lawyers.  If you are in the Denver area and want to attend, here are the details.  I might even opine on Law Firm 2.0 if asked. COLORADO BAR ASSOCIATION – SECURITIES SUBSECTION LUNCHEON…

Beer Review – Midas Touch Golden Elixir

It’s the holidays and I’ve been sampling new beers like never before.  I have about a dozen to review.  But before I do, my new friend Larry Port offered to give y’all a run down on a beer that he’s excited about – Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch.  (I love Dogfish – great brewery).  Larry, take…

Ghostery – Great Application to Show You Who is Watching You on the Web

I’ve recently installed Ghostery on my PCs and am fascinated by the information that I’m getting as I’m cruising around the web, or even visiting my own website.  In short, it alerts you about the web bugs, ad networks and widgets on pages that are tracking you.  Seems to work better than any of my…
