Most of you probably know Carol Coletta well by now. She was formerly head of CEOs for Cities and now runs Art Place. She’s a great thinker and speaker on cities. She recently spoke at the Business Innovation Factory conference in Providence. I was only able to attend day one and so miss her talk on day two. Lucky for me, the videos are now now online, so I could watch her TED-like talk and share it with you.
If the video doesn’t display for you, click here.
The Urban State of Mind: Meditations on the City is the first Urbanophile e-book, featuring provocative essays on the key issues facing our cities, including innovation, talent attraction and brain drain, global soft power, sustainability, economic development, and localism. Included are 28 carefully curated essays out of nearly 1,200 posts in the first seven years of the Urbanophile, plus 9 original pieces. Great for anyone who cares about our cities, The Urban State of Mind also makes a great gift this holiday season.
