It's often said that Metro Detroit and Michigan need to reinvent their economies to be competitive. Are we making those changes, and if so are we making enough of them or doing it fast enough?
Michigan has some solid advantages in many areas but is lagging on understanding the importance of Internet companies, but with a new governor with a tech background there is big hope. That said, success stories like search cactus, ePrize, o hub, benzinga, and others are supplying some optimism that this area can spawn cool smart profitable Internet businesses.
