According to Jon: "Allentown Is 1st PA City to Have an App"...... Is he correct? Huh? However one classifies any software in Pittsburgh here, you have to notice that the Morning Call story didn't feel that a mention of anything going on in Pittsburgh was warranted. Not a single mention! It is all yet another odd datapoint in the great Pittsburgh mystery I explained the other day where all the great technology in town is transmuted into a form of dark matter when it crosses the Rubicon into the region's public sector.
Does that mean iBurgh is kaput? The Morning Call story could be like revisionist history.. it's more like it is saying it never existed in the first place. If nothing else there is a PR problem here. Maybe it is all just a semantic distinction with regards to who actually published the software. Allentown's publisher appears to literally be the city there, and not a third party in most cases locally.
Anyway.. I should have copyrighted iBurgh once upon a time. That or the idea of a pothole repprting app.
