Des Moines Three firsts in this week's episode: Sam DuRegger of Charming Beard Productions joined us as a guest, we celebrated a guest's birthday on the show and the same guest made a quick exit moments later (due to what turned out to be some first-time pregnancy jitters — it happens to the best of us). It was a fun show, and we discussed Scott Case's … read more

Des Moines After two weeks off for Thinc Iowa (me) and a new baby (Andy), we're back with episode 60 of your favorite weekly podcast: PrairieCast! During those two weeks of "down time," we came up with some new ideas for the show and we'll be rolling them out over the next several episodes.

Less than a week after speaking at our conference, Thinc Iowa, Dwolla CEO Ben Milne flew across the pond to sit on a panel on Friday at the Dublin Web Summit, a two-day event featuring over 100 speakers (and I'd say, it's a pretty awesome lineup). Just before lunch, Milne participated in 20-minute panel titled "The Future of Money." Moderated by Ben Rooney … read more

Des Moines If, as we posited in May, Big Omaha is like Paris Fashion Week — and at this point we see no grounds for questioning that claim — then it stands to reason that Thinc Iowa is akin to a runway show in Milan. Sure, Versace and Prada are replaced by Zaarly and Dwolla. But, still, it all comes down to who you're wearing. With that in mind, Silicon Prairie News set a crack team of intrepid reporters loose on the streets of downtown Des Moines on Friday — or, more accurately, I walked around creeping … read more
