Culture-burgh

So, New York Magazine has Pittsburgh listed as a major culture hub. It's near the bottom of places listed in: Ideas for Culture Hunters. Not only that, but Pittsburgh is one of only two US entries among a list of foreign venues that stretch from London to Muscat. Scary thing is that other than Buenos Aires, I think I have been to all of them. I have to admit I have probably not absorbed as much culture as I should have.

But this brings up a funny technology point. I was going to point out my pictures of Muscat, but I discovered that my link for online photos does not work any longer. I am not so much a Luddite as driven by inertia. While (or maybe it was before) everyone was putting pictures on flickr I put up photos on a different site photosite.com many years ago... low and behold they have gone belly up. I'm sure there are some lessons in all of that.


and just for the bloggeratti, there is another story in that New York Magazine issue on how some photo-artist translated blog-success into something bigger. Read: A Photo Blogger Lands Her Own Gallery Gig.

Curious that Pittsburgh wasn't designated as "cheap" by New York.

I was thinking that more in the recent New York Times article that listed Ali Baba's in Oakland under their places to eat. I really like Ali Babas, and it is reasonably priced even by local standards ... I thought the NYT person looking at the menu must have been shocked.
