the-flight-of-the-creative-class-100.jpgRichard Florida, author of The Flight of the Creative Class, on what makes Austin a center for creativity: 'I got this note [after I wrote my book] that said I misunderstood everything about Austin, “The reason Austin is creative is that we have good employers like Whole Foods that allow people in music and film to make a living wage, so they can work at night.' This clued me in, having a good service sector means having a good creative sector." [ABJ]
