Description

Our guest for Episode 62 is Spike Ilacqua, Founder and CTO at Indra’s Net, one of Colorado’s first-ever Internet Service Providers. Spike’s a veteran — a pioneer, even — of the Front Range tech scene, and has a lot to say about:





  • how the focus and mission at Indra’s Net has adapted to the changing times over the last 25 years
  • what it was like to create an ISP in the early 90’s — when the internet was just a glimmer of what it’s become
  • tech’s impact on the city of Boulder, and how it might help resolve some of the many issues Boulder faces
  • the similarities and differences between the tech scene in Boulder then vs now
