Five Reasons Broward County Will Never Be "Cutting Edge and Hip"

The Sun-Sentinel has a piece today about how local business leaders and yuppies are aspiring to make Broward a high-tech destination to lure young people and their families from across the nation. It quotes a few successful professionals who found nice office space, to support the thesis that "Broward aims to be seen more like Austin, Texas or Portland, Ore.: places with outstanding schools, excellent public transportation, vibrant cultural activities and a healthy lifestyle."

Hey, Broward. Buddy. If you want to be seen as having those things, you should actually have those things.

But there are some other reasons that establishing Broward as a hip-lifestyle destination is nothing more than the PR campaign of the moment.
