Santa Cruz Tech Beat. The goto source for Santa Cruz tech.

Digest #109

I'm particularly excited about this week's digest because we've got such a variety of articles that you won't read anywhere else. You already know that ag tech is hot but today you can read about ten new ag tech startups that are located in our area. Also, find out what happened when game developer and author Jane McGonigal came to BookShop Santa Cruz to talk about her new book, "SuperBetter." Santa Cruz Works and Santa Cruz Tech Beat are co-sponsoring two special events in the coming weeks. First, practice pitching at the Sand Hill Angels RAW Pitch Night. Then, come to "The History & Future of Genomics in Santa Cruz." And, what is O'Neill doing to increase revenue on smart phones?

All this and more, below. Start reading!

Remember: Two special events are coming up at UCSC during Data Science Week. Member of the local tech community are invited. DataLex Conference - Privacy, Big Data, & The Law is October 13, and Baskin Engineering's Research & Review Day is October 14.

Thank you to our newest partner, County of Santa Cruz!
