    You pointed out some excellent examples. It may also be helpful to connect with regions that are in a similar stage of the process, as opposed to finished products. There is a group of regional leaders in Southeast Texas who share your commitment to thinking differently about economic development strategies. You can read about their efforts here: http://www.civicanalytics.com/blog/2007/12/8/making-southeast-texas-cool.html

    I'd suggest adding Littleton, Colorado's "economic gardening" project (one of the oldest in the nation--started in 1987) to the list. The approach melds well with the "creative class" efforts in that both are aimed at supporting local, creative class of entrepreneurs.

    There are also a number of similar, more recent entrepreneurial projects around the nation including State of Kansas, State of Georgia, Louisville KY, State of Wyoming, Lancaster County PA, and Chico, CA.
