  50. 50. http://www.fastcoexist.com/1681959/joi-ito-s-plan-for-urban-innovation-let-a-thousand-weirdos-bloom Joi Ito’s Plan For Urban Innovation: “Let A Thousand Weirdos Bloom” Instead of planning for an urban renewal, the head of MIT’s Media Lab says cities should just get out of the way and make it easier for young and interesting people to do what they do best: innovate. Ever since Richard Florida published The Rise of the Creative Class, back in 2002, urban planners have been hot to find the secret key to unleashing innovation (and its attendant jobs) in their cities. Is it all about attracting gays (perhaps Florida’s most newsworthy prescription at the time. What a difference a decade makes!)? Artists? Techies? And, more importantly, if a city doesn’t already have a home-base of such “creatives," what can city fathers do to attract it? Joi Ito, the director of MIT’s famed Media Lab, has a different idea: Find what talent already exists in your city, the more iconoclastic the better, and then nurture it without 284 295 Find your own weirdos, and figure out how to amplify them. “” Co.DESIGN Co.CREATE Co.LABS SUBSCRIBE EXIST DAILY ‘Misregistered’ Zoning Code ZAGO Architecture - MOMA Foreclosed
