@bpiatt @JBSA_Official I'm not diminishing that! Just wondering if it's the correct branding to use. @Okhah @micah "Talking about me is what I dooooooo!"Fascinating article about Grand Rapids, MI. Interesting that they branded themselves "Beer City USA" and a placing… Holdings in San Antonio Buys Utah-Based Moki Mobility
Retweeted by Michael Girdley @micah My experience is most of them don’t think they’re self promoting. It’s fascinating to me.
@Derrich That's great. I was near UTSA and saw pretty much nothing in terms of construction! @paulflahive Most people don't realize that the RGV is such good farmland in part because it's so close to sea level.We are moving an employee to SA. Told him and wife about Whataburger. He said, “why do you pronounce it ‘water-bur… @jsinge97 I just don’t answer any unknown calls. I feel you.👍🏻👇🚀 @beermonkey So happy for SA. @Storkitus I try!4 more cranes went up last week or so. Had a meeting in the suburbs today. No construction at all. @mattaespinoza Yeah, I think there'll be a massive flood of them very soon. Lots of VC money flooding into the spa… is a mind virus. Startup Weekend is a great way to catch it. @mattaespinoza two words: "consumer surplus" !
@rcollazo @bird I had fun on one, too. I was the 6'6" guy riding down Houston St screaming "This feels so dangerous!" :-) @CoachJenRulon @newbalance Looking ripped!

I think th… give it four weeks until they’re so many from so many competing companies that they become a nuisance. @jbaugh I don’t see many hipsters in that area. Perhaps I’m out at the wrong time... @tomcuthbert Done “venti” right?
Lastly, I'd definitely try to make the games better than the NFL experience. Less breaks and timeouts would be a great first step! /fin @beermonkey Who knows. There's also the XFL reboot forthcoming from the WWE people. That'll be fun, too. Vince Mc… the NBA, NFL fans root for the jersey and not the players. So, the "recruit stars plan" works better in NBA of course. /5 @beermonkey I haven't seen any of that in the articles but could make sense. If so, that sounds kinda boring! I'll go anyways..Now, that plan requires real patient money like the MLS has deployed over the past decade+. Not certain they have it. /4If I was in their shoes, I'd go head-to-head with the NFL.

For fundraising, cold ones are bad.
Retweeted by Michael Girdley @TexasMarker and include the phrase: "Coffee's on me!"Where is the blog post telling fundraising companies to cold-email investors asking for "advice and guidance"?

Just mind-blowing. @MikeBoard1200 @lgomez123 I’d say we need to address the education system more than any of those things to have more tech jobs here. @MikeBoard1200 @lgomez123 I don’t understand the question. Like what kind of infrastructure do you mean? @lgomez123 @MikeBoard1200 Aw shucks, I try. @lgomez123 @MikeBoard1200 Depends on what you mean.

You used to have to go to one of those places to find it. Not anymore. @AlertingMainSt @seobrien Being pre-retired here is a great, too. @SALocalLowDown @satscribe I can't resist commenting on the typo: @higg1921 If those people I'm impressing are customers or acquirers, I'm down! @EllieKSAT @satscribe @ksatnews Amazing he had the gumption to stay this long.I used to get the "Why do you live in San Antonio?" look from people living in SF/NYC/Denver/LA/SEA/etc. It doesn'… event was pretty fun and nobody made fun of my shoes nor shirt, so that's a win:"That's OK, Girdley.

@jbaugh Fox Tech campus would be great if you ask me! @hhoover IAH feels like it's always delayed somehow. @jbaugh It's an interesting question.
