The founder of SparkFun has created a robot that's got your back. It's not a very cute robot unfortunately. Also this week, the Colorado = Security podcast is selling out (we hope), we learn that DIA booked an IR training, Telsa is charging up Littleton, eFolder is folding into a competitor, Fortrust is swallowed by a Mountain, Optiv sees its way to a Gartner top 10, Red Canary sings a dirge for perimeter security, and a lot more bad puns.
