I'm trying to get the blog's title to match up better with it's broader focus.
When, one thinks of reaching out to the wider world around here, most either show little interest or say, cool--wow, we need to link to NY and Philly. Yes, we do but we also need to understand and focus on the advantages, assets and opportunities in our own hood.
Geography is a hand you are dealt and our hand is not bad at all. We are pretty close to Harrisburg, Philly, NY, Baltimore and DC--but by travel time should be much, much closer to the cities in Ohio. Combined, there are many more assets here than we understand or fully leverage.
Still organizing blog and other links.
