I love Mpls. And Minnesota in general.

I’ve worked and gone to school here in Minneapolis since getting out of SCSU in 2005. It’s a great place to live with a ton of really smart and funny people.

But…

I was looking at my blogroll and thinking why all the really interesting stuff I read is East coast centric. There’s always a lot of talk about how the West coast is the area for technology businesses, but most of the great bloggers I read work in the NYC area or around there, and the amount of great information they continue to push out is enlightening and really worthwhile. There are some other hotspots with good bloggers, but mostly East coast.

I’m all about being part of the community here and meeting other smart business people, but after an extensive search for some Minneapolis based bloggers on business or anything else enlightening produced abandoned blogs and a real lack of thought, I’m at a bit of a loss. Where are the bloggers? Do we not support them this here?

There is no doubt that we have an incredible assortment of smart business people here, and an impeccable backyard full of Fortune 500s and, yes, quite a few startups in the tech center too (mostly med tech, but whatever). I’m thinking my searches are porous or something.

I’m looking for bloggers here in the area that update regularly and write about business or local events. Especially organizational dynamics, start ups, tech, music and mpls/metro area events. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
