Innovation-less Burgh?

Speaking of innovation in the nonprofit sector. Government is a nonprofit sector I suppose......

News that the Social Innovation Accelerator is shutting down is awfully abrupt and unexpected. A unique event, or maybe a signal of something else? The organization was founded by Tim Zak who now runs CMU's Australia campus and has an itinerant blog himself going back a few years: Is all a bit curious since yesterday the news was about social innovation in Pittsburgh being in the news with White House exposure.

This doesn't really fit here exactly, but the forum today seemed to print a giant exercise in missing the point:

I'd always thought the point (from a national or environmental perspective) was that population growth in Pittsburgh would be instead of (not in addition to) population growth in Phoenix and the like. And that we could carry the extra load with less environmental consequence than putting a new city in the desert.
