Boston, The World's Incubator

Jay nails Boston
So Long, Boston, and Thanks for All the Robotic Fish
And in what are we BEST? Germinating powerful new ideas. Teaching transformative new skills. And, yes, even rallying for revolutions, both figurative and literal. (Few cities can say that.)
Boston provides the foundation and the lab. It’s a place to think, tinker, learn, and launch. It’s the best place to start.
If you want to build a sturdy career or an unassailable company, start here.
If you want to cut your teeth or learn your craft to be able to do big things, start here.
We embrace the early. We relish in the raw. And we operate in the ugly. Even those notable companies Boston lost — Facebook, Reddit, Dropbox, and others— should be celebrated. They started here, and we take pride in the starting of things.

A few notes on why...
- We educated intellectuals feel entitled to what we conjur
So we whine about wisdom letting us down
- All those damn kids makes the adults feel like the grownups
So we lose our creative mojo
