High Tech Law in Pittsburgh

Yes, this was me this morning, quoted in this P-G story about the high tech lawyers at the local branch of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. MLB knows how to play the game, but it struggles to play the hand it has been dealt:
Morgan Lewis also tries to bring investors to town periodically and show them a handful of technologies "they haven't seen before," said Mr. Kline.

"If they invest once, they will come back. But until they come in, they think, 'Why come in?' The problem with Pittsburgh is not the perception that we're a steel town. It's the perception that we're a third-rate tech player. People don't know enough about what's going on here."
