Spending a few days in the rust belt was an intense experience. It is always exciting to visit car manufacturers and hangout with peers doing interesting work in the space, but, on the other hand, empty building and houses, roads in terrible condition, lines of people outside of soup kitchens wrenched my heart completely open. I have to admit that it was refreshing to meet young and aspiring creative folks that are working hard to lift the city. I got an immense sense of hope, and I cannot wait to see what this city will grow up to be!
