1/26/08: Is there a brain drain in Vermont? Are we losing brainy young people to metropolitan areas?

These days, Vermont's economic forecast seems glum which is where Seven Days and Vermont 3.0 come in.

This Saturday over 1,500 people stopped by Main Street Landing to mingle with the 50+ exhibitors at the first ever Vermont 3.0 Creative/Tech Career Jam.

The concept was simple, provide a meet and greet for innovative Vermont technology companies and people searching for jobs. Voila!

In case you were one of the few who missed it, Governor Douglas played Guitar Hero (not too successfully), Bernie Sanders and Anthony Pollina came through, students from all over VT and leaders in Vermont's creative technology industries rubbed shoulders.

After a successful event such as this, the future seems bright enough for shades.

Music: Super fresh song by Missy Bly, "Afraid to Fly," off her brand new album, MB3.
