The Sprout Fund

More support for innovation in the arts in Pittsburgh: The Sprout Fund.

A puzzle: looking through just the few entries on this blog about innovation in a variety of domains, why is Pittsburgh still best known--at least around the U.S.--as an old-time manufacturing city? Between high technology research and support for the arts, why isn't this the cultural heart of the mid-Atlantic region?

(For internationalists: Would the same question draw a different response outside of the U.S.? Is Pittsburgh's true modern form better appreciated elsewhere?)
