On Thursday September 12, 2013 Richard Florida spoke to the people of Utica about opportunities for the creative class. I was unable to attend the event, but I sent some capable collaborators. I plan to host the notes and opinions here on this post, as they come in.
My first guest is my amazing 14 year old daughter—Olivia. Below are some of her notes.
I’m also pleased to feature PrattMWP student Kalina Croes who submitted her Top Ten Things taken from Florida’s Lecture.
Please submit comments and pictures or message me about your experience and opinions of this lecture, I’m looking forward to hearing more about it.
