Pittsburgh CONNECT?

I was out of town for much of last week, but I came across a couple of interesting resources nonetheless:

First is an outfit in San Diego called CONNECT, a 20-year-old organization dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs and investors in IT and life sciences businesses. Here's the CONNECT website. Take a look around. Among other things, note the involvement of the professional services community -- that is, the lawyers. Pittsburgh could use something like this.

Second is a little entrepreneurial program funded by a law firm in Boston: TechnOvation. Here's the website. (A pdf brochure -- nearly 2MB -- is also online.) Pittsburgh law firms could learn a bit from this, too.

Is it just me or is there something inherently funny about the "Nutter TechnOvation Awards"? I can't get the image out of my mind of Christopher Lloyd as Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to the Future when he answered the door.
