Wiki-Chair and beyond

Ha.  PG picks up the Parking Chair theme with the intro of comments from here in Parking Chair Zen.

Speaking of The Chair*.... local style guides should require capitalization! The living reference that is Wikipedia is has continued to expand the (no longer just Pittsburgh) Parking Chair page.  Fascinating to watch. It now even needs a table of contents.  Did you know the the Pittsburgh Left has it's own page as well?  Does it mean anything that the only Wiki entry for "Pittsburgh Left" refers only to the traffic manuever? i.e. Wikipedia has no disambiguation for any political use of that term?

On that though...  support the dead trees.  You might find an interesting map in the CP today that Potter (or his bosses?) will not put online until tomorrow I imagine.  Some related Pgh-media-tech-geek history.  Anyone notice the CP is now using the old doman for In Pittsburgh (http://www.inpgh.com/)_which it bought some years ago. The commute from Samoa (.ws) must have been getting painful in that they were using (http://www.pittsburghcitypaper.ws/).  I've been meaning to ask.  Who owns pittsburghcitypaper.com?

Oh yeah..... gotta keep up with the times:  #parkingchair.

* no Bram, not that chair.

Could you imagine what would happen if the Boy Mayor would do this here?

If the parking chairs get moved, you may as well have the kids stand out there with a sign. Apparently Pittsburgh can't clear enough snow for them to attend school.

Saturday is "Pittsburgh Parking Chair Day" at the Children's Museum. You can tell that many people don't fully understand the concept. There are plenty of people using chairs that are way too nice to be left outside.

This morning I saw a parking toilet on Harriet Street. I unfortunately had no camera.

the parking toilet(s) have been pretty well at this point. City paper had a picture of a whole bathroom ensemble in the streets last week.
