“The creative individual is no longer viewed as an iconoclast. He—or she—is the new mainstream.”
Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class--Revisited: 10th Anniversary Edition--Revised and Expanded

“It's not that gays and diversity equal high technology. But if your culture is not such that it can accept difference, and uniqueness and oddity and eccentricity, you will not get high tech industry.”
Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class: And How It's Transforming Work, Leisure, Community, and Everyday Life

“As the economy has become more specialized and the occupational division of labor has deepened, the Creative Class has increasingly outsourced functions that were previously provided within the family to the Service Class.”
Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class--Revisited: 10th Anniversary Edition--Revised and Expanded
