I’m currently in London, back home tonight.
It looks like Stormhoek will be spending more marketing efforts in the USA starting this year, which might mean I get to spend more time in New York, after a few years away from my most beloved city.
Also, there’s some interesting things happening with English Cut on the company front. Since most of our customers are American, I can’t see not spending more time over there for that as well.
I’ve no real interest in living there full-time again [Honest!]. I’m not Wall Street material, nor does Big Media or Madison Avenue do much for me these days. Right now I’m thinking a few days every month or so would be good, not unlike the frequency I currently visit Paris and London.
It’s funny, even five years ago doing what I’m doing outside a big city would be nearly impossible. But the blogosphere changed everything.
A $5000-a-month Tribeca loft is far less appealing when you don’t actually have to live there in order to get ahead.
But yet, in spite of the internet making things possible for so many people near and far, the property prices in New York, London and other central hubs do nothing except rise. And rise fiercely.
What’s going on? The Pre-Cluetrain crowd having one last gasp before the party ends?
