Book cover I read a book review this morning in Wired (click here for Wired Web site) on “Flight of the Creative Class” by Richard Florida (buy it at or It got a so-so review, and I haven’t read the book (has anyone else?). But I did like the 3 concepts/engines he seems to have built his book around.
The book is about the creative capital that the US is losing at an alarming rate, and the risk to it’s ‘Global Edge’. Florida suggests that the engines of economic growth are technology, talent and tolerance.
These 3 drivers got my attention. Mostly because one of them is the bell we’re ringing within, the other I am completely committed to, and the third because we’re wrestling in a country struggling to work out how to do it.
I may just go out and get the book.
