1. Interesting thoughts there, as far as myself I’m a city person but for those who have or are starting their families in our modern world the small town environment isn’t how it used to be back in the day.

  2. I haven’t thought about any of this either but it makes sense. Even better if you get a group of like-minded location dependent folks, you can create your own community, like a coworking space but writ large. Think of something like cohousing where families live in together in the same complex (https://www.ted.com/talks/grace_kim_how_cohousing_can_make_us_happier_and_live_longer) but the focus is expanded to a community that others would overlook. You can bring back what people miss from small time America into an age with smartphones and drones.


  3. That’s funny what you say about internet connectivity and coders, because I’m a coder and I live in a small town, and when our internet connection is coughing and spluttering my wife always asks how come it doesn’t bother me but it bothers her, and I say, because you’ve got 17 tabs open of cute dog videos playing on youtube, all I’m doing is pushing and pulling the occasional text file – and with javascript you don’t even need any connection at all most of the time, you can just work in the browser.

    Community is the thing, as my wife always says.
