    This is a really interesting and, I think, incredibly important article. I found it very applicable to what has been happening in New Orleans post-Katrina. With population size returning to pre-Katrina numbers, it is an entirely different composition of people as the city becomes known as a "cool city" more and more.

      And certainly applicable to Detroit. Pop up galleries aren't going to stave off the biggest municipal bankruptcy in history.

        thoughtful. sobering. frustrating. I think his logic holds ground, but trends in manufacturing speak of a more decentralized future. more entrepreneurs. less large employee driven factories. that shifting dynamic favors a creative culture.
