Right now, it would be next to impossible to move to a town like Florence, Kansas and find gainful employment. Connectivity will change that. An increasing number of professions no longer require office time, and as more and more professionals realize they are able to work from home, or a remote location of their choosing, they may decide that a change in venue is in order. Over the course of our travels, we have passed through quite a few small towns that left us saying: "we could live here." Certainly, we are not the only people who feel this way. Sooner or later, cyber commuting professionals with the desire for a small town lifestyle will begin to act on their dreams, trading the monotony of the suburbs and chain-store plazas for more authentic slices of Americana. It may only be a trickle, or it could become a flood. Only time will tell, but my guess is that some of this country's small towns will begin to experience an upward reversal of fortune, and now-abandoned downtowns may once again be filled with the hum of commercial activity.
