BW Chicago: Meet Gen Next and More

The latest issue of BW Chicago, the local monthly business magazine from BusinessWeek, is making the rounds.
It's another very strong endeavor, one that shows how BW Chicago is becoming a unique and viable voice within the community.
I'm biased, of course, because I work for this new publication. But don't take my word for it. Please check it out for yourself.
This month's cover story identifies the next generation of Chicago-area business leaders--the 10 people who will be running the show in the next decade. It's an impressive group, one that reflects Chicago's metamorphosis from Rust Belt and corporate headquarters hub to a bustling financial services center.
Who are they? BW Chicago names names! (I should know, having written the story.)
Speaking of change, were you aware of California-based Google's growing presence in the Chicago market? Probably not. But that's going to change once you read BW Chicago senior correspondent Judith Crown's article on Google's expansion, hiring spree and determination to become a local high-tech power.
Also is this issue: BusinessWeek's tech reporter Roger O. Crockett reveals Motorola's latest gamble--constructing an area-wide WiMax network. Let's see if this helps turn it around for the Schaumburg-based company.
There's much more, including my column on why Chicago's Mayor Daley shouldn't be selling the city's infra-structure to corporate sponsors and event planners. (Shameless plug, again noted.)
BW Chicago is coming on strong with readers and advertisers.
