This study apparently validates my methodology while late-night programming…
Moderate drinking can also relax inhibitions in a way that seems to let the mind range across a wider set of possible connections. It can also help a person notice environmental cues or changes that a sober brain would block out, Dr. Wiley says. In a 2012 study at University of Illinois at Chicago, students who drank enough to raise their blood-alcohol level to 0.075 performed better on tests of insight than sober students. Other research suggests watching funny videos can spark the positive moods linked to higher creativity.

I’m looking for a replacement to curate the Boulder-Denver StartupDigest. If you’re actively involved with local startups and have interest, let me know and we can discuss.
My startup, StatsMix, was recently acquired and I’ve decided I need to take some time off. After three consecutive startups and many years without a real vacation, it’s time for a little break to figure out what’s next. That’s why it makes sense to hand off curating the digest to someone else.
Currently, I’m helping StartupDigest find a replacement for the Boulder-Denver area curator. The main requirement to curate a digest is being actively involved with a local startup.
I have a comprehensive process and list of events I check each week and I’m happy to meet with you, give you all my resources, and help in the transition any way I can.
If you’re interested, just email me at tom at thestartupdigest dot com and we can discuss.
