We're Cool!

Oh, it’s good to be cool. But are you cool when the Economist magazine say’s you’re cool or does that automatically make you, well, less than so. In any event, a friend from the left coast sent this to me and made me promise that I would post it on the blog.

But here it is, in a subheading to the piece that is a special report on entrepreneurship: Entrepreneurialism has become cool. The lead of the article begins with:

VICTOR HUGO once remarked: “You can resist an invading army; you cannot resist an idea whose time has come.” Today entrepreneurship is such an idea.
The triumph of entrepreneurship is driven by profound technological change. A trio of inventions—the personal computer, the mobile phone and the internet—is democratising entrepreneurship at a cracking pace. Today even cash-strapped innovators can reach markets that were once the prerogative of giant organisations.

The piece brings an interesting international flare to a subject that is all too often US-focused.
