Creative class

There’s a lot to like about Austin’s culture and politics. There’s also a lot to dislike. This article definitely falls in the latter category. The blend of provincialism, boosterism, and social entrepreneuralism contained in it is, I think (probably provincially), unique to Austin. It’s amazing how proudly amenable to neoliberalism hipsters and creatives are. And yes, a few of those comments are mine.
