I wanted to quickly thank all the people that expressed their appreciation of this blog – there must have been 30-40 people tell me they regularly read this. I appreciate it. I see the traffic to the site but as you know we have a limited but appreciated comment stream. So this kind of affirmation makes it worth while.
Let’s be clear – most people like some of my concepts – I don’t think I have met anyone (not even my wife) that likes the whole buffet but at least we can agree this is an important subject matter and debate/discuss the various aspects.
It’s kind of a virtual townhall on economic development – but with most people just listening and not weighing in.
I always appreciate it when I get folks saying they read/appreciate the blog even though they don’t understand most of it. I try to write for a wider audience but I can get tripped up in the lingo (value proposition, cluster, import substition, multipliers, – even the word ‘investment’ is not particularly clear to a lot of folks).
Anyway, thanks again. Let’s keep the conversation going. Into this blog’s eight year (nearly 3,000 posts) it is starting to feel like an appendage.
