I missed this over the weekend:

Sunday's Washington Post has a fascinating story about the battle between brain-drain and brain-gain cities [via Interesting People]. In essence, smart entrepreneurial people like to hang out with other smart entrepreneurial people. And whereas Cleveland was the center of cutting edge technology at the turn of the 20th century, these days it's Seattle, Austin and Silicon Valley. [VentureBlog]

It hasn't really made either of the local papers yet, but the P-I's blog mentions it briefly.

It's an interesting article; Seattle has seemed a bit gloomy over the past couple years. It's nice to see someone from outside the area with a positive view.
