Re-localization Opportunities - Local 2.0
Outlines new trend, "Relocalization" or the inevitable "Local 2.0" that's a backlash against malls, industrial "retail" and online "community." Presages resurgence of "face to face" interaction, people paying a premium for locally produced products and "townish" community. It's a new synthesis: people don't believe in commuting, and many workers are accustomed to working "from home" or in Starbucks or other public coworking spaces. It carries a strong green, anti-carbon tinge as well. And it's not at all incompatible with periodic jetsetting, everything can interoperate. Definitely worth watching!
