2 new blogs added April 25, 2006
Posted by Tom in Housekeeping, Links, Updates.
If you look in the right-hand column,you'll see that I added two blogs, Houston Strategies and Smart City Memphis to the list of links. Both are related to issues of economic development (and, to a degree, workforce). The focus of these, however, is tightly linked to their respective metropolitan areas.
Blogs by themselves are terrific in that they represent ongoing conversations – of (hopefully) experts on a given topic of interest. The dialogues in these blogs are replicated throughout the country as individual communities try to find their way in the 21st century social and economic landscape. Discussions like these invariably involve workforce and economic development as keys to building top-flight metro areas. We can all stand to learn from each other, finding best practices and avoiding unfortunate pitfalls.
I found both to be very interesting, and more community-specific blog links will follow as they are identified.
[UPDATE 4/27/06 – A couple great Pittsburgh blogs are now listed. Communities have so much to learn from each others' experiences!]
