GeographyToPassion (ThoughtStorms)

"There is no geography to passion" is meant as a critique of the CreativeClass analysis. And a good excuse to tie this to SpatialConstraintsOnInformationFlows

I found ErnestoSorelli's comment rather vague. I think he means that there are people everywhere who HavePassion/AreCreative. I agree this is true and worth acknowledging, but I'm not sure it contradicts RichardFlorida that much. Perhaps he's saying that every town needs to supports its passionate people because those are the people who generate economic and lifestyle value for lots of people. Which I find consistent with Florida's point that towns that most actively support such people will tend to attract more of them, creating a virtuous cycle. How did you read him? --BillSeitz
