How to make Baltimore a ‘magnet for innovators’: fast Internet and open government [Links]

"[T]here are two main things we can do to make Baltimore more attractive to innovators: build faster internet access and increase government transparency."

How we can make Baltimore a magnet for innovators [SmartCEO magazine]: “[T]here are two main things we can do to make Baltimore more attractive to innovators: build faster internet access and increase government transparency.”

Beyond recognition: the incredible story of a face transplant [The Verge]: “If the surgeons succeeded, [Carmen] Tarleton would become just the seventh American patient to undergo a risky, experimental procedure known as a face transplant.”

City awards bid for vacant parcels to Baltimore Free Farm [Baltimore Brew]: “Baltimore Housing announced late yesterday they have decided to award rights to buy two city-owned vacant lots on Baldwin Street to Baltimore Free Farm – choosing them over another bidder who reportedly planned to develop the properties.”

Pity the poor Harbor Pointers [Baltimore Sun]: “Wealthy, well-connected developers play by an entirely different set of rules with a willing hand from of our civic leaders.”
