Doug Poretz of Next Horizon Communications just posted a very worthwhile blog post about what is needed to grow the Technology community in Florida. He makes the points that we need to:
Coalesce our activites to reach a critical mass
Actually do something about our geographic realities
Accept that we are one state and stop being so parochial
Change how we measure success for our Tech community
Position Miami as not only the business capital of Latin America, but as a Tech capital as well
And then, craft a uniquely Florida vision of the future.
All these are very important points and you can find more on the Next Horizon blog.
