Economy / Business
In this twenty-first century network economy, being second to market with a great idea is worth just about nothing. Varying levels of regional competitiveness and productivity tend to be a function of having critical masses of people having the facility to gather new information and to develop insight about new things on, or just over, the horizon. Perhaps Ben Davenport of Chatham, Virginia said it best, "To compete in this new economy we need something that no one else has, but that everyone will want and need." From that "something" may come the biggest advantage of all, people with unique understanding about the next generation of information and network technologies, and the new products and emerging industries leveraging them.
