Today I visited the Apple Store looking at Blue Microphones to start podcasting again and you can’t help but notice the long line waiting outside for the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6 was first released September 19, 2014. That’s 41 days ago! #impressive

This morning I had a chance to have coffee with Lesa Mitchell. She has a knew role at Galvanize.

We had a chance to catch up and talk entrepreneurship, tech culture, pipeline, BuildUp and Galvanize.

Lesa is truly amazing and passionate about making an impact.

She is also looking for some awesome data scientists at Galvanize.
