At the Mayors Innovation Project

Today and tomorrow I’m at the summer meeting of the Mayor’s Innovation Project in Oak Park, Illinois. About three dozen of the most engaged and engaging mayors in the nation are meeting with national experts this weekend on the topics of closing the achievement gap in our schools, how to create walkable communities, how to create diverse neighborhoods, and smart grid technology. 

I helped found MIP eight years ago specifically to get this kind of wonky interaction. I joke (but it’s not that much of a joke) that we’re the nerd mayors of America. We’re proud of that.
