PrairieCast video: foursquare in Des Moines, fiber in the Silicon Prairie
Episode 74: The one where zombies leap for bandwidth
This week we had two PrairieCast rookies on the show, OpenAir Equity Partners' executive-in-residence Thad Langford and Drake University social media strategy instructor Chris Snider. We discussed the successful efforts of Snider's class to procure a badge for Des Moines on the popular social platform foursquare, Langford's investment in Kansas City-based mobile search browser Leap2 and the latest news on Google Fiber.
This week the Fast Four included the foursquare badge, the anonymous $1.2B data center coming to the region, Jack Perry's advice to entrepreneurs and the heavily skewed gender demographic of Pinterest.
This week's Stat is: 169. What's does it mean? Join us on PrairieCast to find out!
