I went to visit Seattle for a Microsoft event last week. While there was plenty of innovation there (see my post here), it is dwarfed by the diversity of Pike Place, the city’s landmark, century-old marketplace. It is a riot of colors, smells and sounds. All kinds of fruits, flowers, fishes, cheeses, coffees and more.
It is a good reminder of the dramatic range of technology enabled innovation we are seeing. Through October 31, the New Florence blog is at 530 entries for the year, or a 650 annual run rate. Not bad for a year where I also worked on a book project.
Enjoy the bounty. And I came home and told my wife I need to take her to Seattle so she can enjoy Pike for several days.
