Another Tech Development Consortium

Pittsburgh needs "a regional strategy for growing a vibrant tech community" like a fish needs a bicycle.

You want a vibrant tech community? Find technology developers. Give them money. Watch most of them fail. Let them start over. Repeat. Over and over. The P-G column says: "The dream is to have everyone thinking and working in tech on the same page, 'playing in the sandbox nicely,' as one source said, and a well-funded organization driving it all."

That's classic, old-style Pittsburgh thinking. One ring to rule them all. I, for one, would like to see some folks kicking up some sand, not playing nicely.
