I only hope they refer to the gun and taxidermy museum by it’s acronym: the Texas GTM (pronounced Get’um).
Having Forbes magazine fall in love with your city is kind of like having your grandmother tell you that you are the handsomest boy in your high school.
I have to admit, I like all the attention from Forbes… and my Grandmother :)
But if Forbes ignores your city it’s like if your own grandmother hates your guts. And that’s just wrong.
Long live Key Maps! For most HC submittals key map numbers are still required. As for actually picking up the orange books… its much easier to just pull up GIMS.
I’ll take the complements by Forbes any day over some lyfestyle rag or hipster blogs.
Yes we know you hate everything that doesn’t follow your own ideology.
The real question is what “next great global city” specifically means.
Difference is, Forbes is a magazine specializing in how the real world works and things that actually matter in real life. Everything else is entertainment and wasting time.
