Our bossman Greg Selkoe is on a perpetual mission to encourage urban growth, which is no surprise given his urban planning background and overall entrepreneurial drive. He wears many hats beyond Karmaloop CEO and plays an active role in the civic landscape of Boston and the shaping of verge culture. As a blogger for the Huffington Post, Greg recently posted a plea of sorts for us to consider investing and re-investing in America’s densest cities. Here is a taste of what we believe is a thought-provoking read…

“Cities that will fuel America’s innovation economy are ones that cut red tape, allow for individuals to start new businesses with ease, promote and provide for incubation, absorb immigrants easily, encourage new restaurants, shops, and nightlife venues, and ones that push transit oriented development and zoning for dense mixed-use urban buildings, while relying on taxis, public transit, bicycles and foot traffic for transportation over the automobile.”

If that sounds like the city of your dreams, better head over to HuffPo and read the full article, Urban Engines – American Cities Must Grow.
