Buy Local!

It’s likely that we’ve all heard, in one form or another, pleas to “buy local.”  It may have been a plea to buy locally grown produce, frequent locally owned businesses during the holidays, or only buy products “Made in the USA.”  Whatever the situation, buying local sort of pulls at our heart strings.  We are all locals, wherever we may be.  Shouldn’t we just buy from the folks around us so that our local money stays local, in the community.  In short, the answer is no.  I’ll expand on that short answer, and for now link you to this blog post.  The link is an interesting project that was undertaken in the spirit of buy local, and it highlights many of its deficiencies which we’ll talk more about later.

    I may be a little biased, but I like it when companies choose to use a local computer guy.
