It has been an inspiring afternoon in Stockholm City Hall. As I’m riding the bus home I’m trying to summarize my thoughts about the whole creative class model and I realize that I need to let it sink in for a day or two.
One thing though that I found to be a common theme in the commentaries afterwards was that few were willing to completely accept the notion that Sweden ranked first in the creativity index. There are of course political aspects of that, PJ Anders Linder wrote about that in SvD the other day. More on this later.
