Innovation and cities

  1. All due respect to Paul Graham, but rich people and nerds gather in places for specific reasons.

    Sense of place is a critical strategic lever in the creative economy. Geography may be destiny, but it is the people that create a sense of place from that geography. There is path dependence, to be sure, but the word “destiny” implies fate, which implies helplessness.

    And THAT, I simply cannot accept.
