Food for thought

Check out this article on a study being done to map out future economic prosperity for Ontario, using the idea of the creative class. Thoughts?

I find the idea fascinating but I do wonder about protecting what is referred to as the "service class". Since most artists find ourselves in this position when we start out, it seems we need to pay attention to how this pans out. And it will be interesting to see how they plan to support artists in this economic makeover.

Oh god, why do we give money to that charlatan. Richard Florida just tells members of the "creative class" what they want to hear...
