In his blog post for Xconomy today, Tim Rowe holds up MaRS as an example of what a city can do if they’re ambitious and just decide to make something very big happen. Like when Toronto decided that it wanted to gain ground in the science knowledge economy.

Nevermind that MaRS is again misrepresented as just a biotech incubator or place for research — I suppose there are worse things to be called. But still part of an ambitious, big-thinking plan to improve the science, tech and social outcomes of the economy. Amen.

Read “The Long Game” by Tim Rowe in Xconomy.
