The Creative Class is Moving to Moscow, Idaho This Summer

Beginning June 1, a number (unspecified) of people are moving to Moscow, Idaho for the summer. Why? Because it's "a small college town with the luxuries of home (espresso + broadband)." Would you like to join them? They have a Facebook page. And a Tumblr. At least 30 people have committed to going so far. Sign up here!

Nuh-uh. Get your filthy hipster mitts off my Idaho. *hisses*

Does this mean they're no longer moving to New Orleans and starting ineffectual non-profits/ t-shirt shops/ food trucks/ pop-up _________s?

"Heller is currently working on his most IRL-based project yet"

Is there a reason this didn't get a "And That's When I Clicked Close Tab" slug?

Young People Do Not Realize They Can Stay Home, Make Things, Speak to Each Other.

@City_Dater I buy my authenticity locally.

Yeah, because when I think of Idaho and Communes, I totally envision young creative people hanging out together and having a fun, memorable summer. Sure.

@Brunhilde You would be surprised! My grandparents were professors there. My grandmother got invited to a party one time and "smoked some funny cigarettes". At age 72.
So while the youngs may not have fun, the olds certainly did.

@hockeymom I'm not actually surprised! I only live one state away, they have lovely hot springs and lakes that I've camped at. I blame the History Channel for forever imprinting on my mind that Idaho == Aryan Nation government seperatist skinheads.

@Brunhilde Moscow is still a great little college town. In the middle of a fertile farming region. I don't know how intentional they were with the picking of the place, but if they were going for a 33%-33%-33% mix of hipster bookishness, hippy locavore-ish-ness, and bucolic environs, they found a pretty good place for it.

Sounds like a set up for a shaky-cam horror movie.
