No, I didn’t become famous by placing this ad on writeaprisoner.com (I’m only kidding dude), however, Me and my friends over at Clear Function were featured on the front page of the Business section in Memphis’ largest paper (on a Sunday too!)–The Commercial Appeal.
It’s great to see companies like Clear Function get the attention they deserve. When it boils down to it, it’s companies like this that will create jobs people want and attract bright people to the Memphis area. Anyone with half a brain wouldn’t want to move to Memphis for your run-of-the-mill tech job where you pump out websites like Big Macs at McDonalds. Tech companies simply don’t create the incentive for young, passionate people to move into the area. Their processes and practices are set in stone, much like the demise of their value to customers. Companies like Clear Function and Emerge Memphis have the ability to affect change in a city whose tech dinosaurs have their heads in the sand oblivious to the fact that times are changing.
