Productivity Platforms

Here's a great article about cities as platforms for productivity.  It also explores some online examples.

If America really cared about entrepreneurship, innovation, the freedom to work for yourself, upward mobility, and leading the bleeding edge of technology then things would look very different.  We had that in the past, and then  people legislated it away, leaving most Americans with fewer and fewer opportunities. >_<  Dumbasses.

Meanwhile, Terramagne looks a lot more like the upbeat descriptions at the end.  T-America is set up to encourage trial and error, small businesses, and scalability.  Everyone wins.  And that's why they can have nice things.
