And in the I told you so department.

With all our connectivity and ability to live and work in the country – or in the mountains – or at the beach, apparently we choose to build successful high-tech enterprises in the city.  And in my humble opinion thats a good thing for synergy, collaboration, the remaining face-to-face interpersonal opportunities, night-life, major sports venues, and so much more.

But, I’ve done the alternative, and membership in the volunteer fire department and trips to the dump to watch the bears at sunset are still not better.
