Interesting interview with Joanna Shields, ex-Facebook and now chief executive of the Tech City Investment Organisation:

“London has access to government through Westminster, you have the creative industries [and] you have the financial sector. You almost have Washington with government, New York with financial and advertising and creative and Los Angeles with creative all in one city and within a few square miles.

“This is the gateway to the world. It should not be a stepchild to other cities. It should be in its rightful place as the centre for innovation, the digital industries. The time has come.”

I think she has a big challenge on her hands, but she has the right pedigree and attitude.
