This is interesting. PFM is using Pittsburgh as it's prime example in pitching its services to Gary, Indiana. It's a very curious article in lots of ways.
I think just the other day someone was telling me bloggers were all just hotheads bloviating. I just smiled. Now there is a curious editorial in the Post-Gazette from Saturday on the nexus of blog-dom and the news: Blogger Nation. It's kind of curious as well. You could dissect each paragraph there for insights into how the media and blog-world are really interacting to date. Pretty clear they are not on the same page yet. I guess that would be a virtual page.
I have to admit I didn't get to NN at all, but I will throw this out there. It may be a detail too small for the historians to dig up for us someday, but I really wonder.... is the G20 coming here because NN chose Pittsburgh first? Not inconceivable. Of course, it will probably be a mainstream journalist who would be able to figure it out. Is anyone asking how the G20 selection really came about? I suppose we can just continue to believe it was all in the pancakes.
