Forbes magazine recently listed Michigan as one of the country's hottest scenes for start-up companies. Calling us The Silicon Mitten, places like Ann Arbor (clean tech), Detroit (manufacturing), and Grand Rapids (medical) are leading the way in innovation. Go Michigan!
As you're probably well aware at this point, the local news in Michigan has picked up on the story that Wisconsin thinks it's The Mitten State. What was that state's Tourism Board thinking? We're not exactly sure... We don't take personal offense to it; we think it's a pretty funny story. But... why would you run an entire ad campaign that sets you up to look like a knock-off? Michigan is very clearly shaped like a mitten; there's really no question. Wisconsin? Well, sort of... But that sliver of a thumb is a real stretch. Looks more like a hangnail. You're the poor man's version of a mitten, Cheeseheads!
