Question: If your in boulder why not call it DC303
Because there has already been a DC303 (located in downtown Denver) that is a group with a lot of history and I don’t want to step on that. Boulder is covered by the 303 and 720 area codes.

Question: Why not go the 30m to Denver where you already have some of the best new and old school hackers around?
Couple of reasons…
- DC303 has a tendency to meet infrequently (check their website dc303.org)
- While it’s only 30 miles to Denver, the 36 to 25 at rush hour can turn it into an hour or longer.
- (When they do meet) They meet on Fridays, the weekends usually belong to my family.
- Boulder has a lot of startup and cultural differences (talking tech at this point, not politics, thinks startups vs established businesses) in the tech.
Hope that answers your questions.
