Who's Your City?

Relocation may be one of your work search options, but where should you live? Richard Florida, author of Rise of the Creative Class, has just written a new book, Who's Your City?. According to reviews (because my own copy is still in the mail) certain cities facilitate certain lifestyles and careers. On his website for the book, there is a cool little tool called Place Finder that you can use to find out if you should stay where you are or move to the new city (or four) that you can play with on the scale and answer different questions about. Obviously, if you have lived in a certain city you can make better guesses about the cultural life or your ability to "be yourself" and natural beauty may mean nothing to you since library stacks are the only fauna librarians need.
