Creativity vs. Simplicity

Today the Nauvoo Commuter is back in the world’s largest city (hint: it is not NYC and not even in the Western Hemisphere.) I will reiterate what I’ve written in these logs before: large cities spawn creativity better than small cities, and far better than agrarian regions.

But here is the good news: large cities also spawn distraction. Living in Urbania and Suburbania, they are jostled and busied to death. They struggle to make time to get substantive things done. On the prairie we don't have any more time, but less minutia. We can focus better.
