Diasporan looks back - the Pittsburgh buzz
and video even.. or a still of a video at least. Hey, I wonder where he got that factoid on educational attainment?
Note also a bit of contradiction. The theme is St. Louis should be like Pittsburgh and also that venture capital is important. Note the mention in passing of the story we don't talk about as much as we should... of how the local founder of Genentech, Herb Boyer, could not find local venture capital and so wound up founding the worlds largest biotech company elsewhere. So are we good at this venture capital thing or not? All depends.
Nonetheless, I still find it odd that the guy who can't get a bike path named for him locally has a full speaking schedule just about everywhere else in the country and beyond.
