    RYAN: Later, nerds
    08/12/2014 09:02 PM MDT - Over the years, I've learned plenty of lessons about being a nerd - some fun, some not-so-fun, and some slightly pointless. And for the two years I've been writing this column I've had the joy of sharing some of those lessons with you - and picking up some lessons from all of you along the way. But I'm more than a year out of the Herd and it's time to pass the torch to another wordy nerd (heh.)  Full Story

    07/27/2014 07:36 PM MDT - Most of the staff at the Boulder Outdoor Cinema has been working together for more than a decade. We love movies, hanging out with each other, being outside and the seasonal nature of the gig.
