to blog is to........

More blog angst or something out there again. Matt H. seems to be rethinking, Bram is moderating comments, Big Ben has impostors , PittGirl has a new home and who knows what some folks will do without a campaign to foil off of for a couple months at least.

I honestly still don't know what to make of my blog here. An ongoing experiment is about as far as try to explain it to myself. But in noting the latest news blurb about the Chicken Hill development, I was curious how many folks had watched the community youtube video I mentioned in a blog post. If you call up the "statistics and data" pulldown on that particular video it looks like more folks clicked through to that clip via this blog than via KDKA. That isn't bragging, I just find it curious and it wasn't a big number from any site. Says more about the online readers of KDKA online than about this blog.

It still cracks me up though. One of the opening lines: "Our Town Doesn't want to be supersized. " Somebody has watched too many Frank Capra movies. Not anything to do with whether that project itself should move ahead... but it is a pretty telling sign on the economic change in the region that anyone is worried about 'supersizing' anything in Pittsburgh... in the city of Pittsburgh no less. If only we can get the Port Authority to think supersizing, not rightsizing. Yes Ken, I know I know: 'We can't afford it'. Lots of things we can't afford being susidized these days. Alas, for later.

seconding evergrey here.

..and now that summer is upon us, where is the local discussion about Netroots Nation coming to town August 13-16? Any other dKos posters out there want to collaborate on a "welcome to Pittsburgh" series there, describing different neighborhoods and things to do in town?
