We made it through another Boulder Monday, and have only Tuesday to go before it is hump day again. It is quite clear to me that the flow of time is anything but linear. It certainly feels that time can pass more slowly or far faster depending upon many things. The hourglass has a long and distinguished history The hourglass, also known as a sand timer or sand clock, has been a significant instrument for measuring time since its inception, believed to be around the 8th century AD.

Impact Hub Boulder: Impactive Work Space & Collaborative Efforts

June 11th, 2015

Creative and active environments often foster the greatest impacts on people and the work they put out.

This mindset is what makes up Impact Hub. At its most basic level, Impact Hub is a shared workspace, but when you become a member... Read More
