Seattle High Tech

Seattle Post-Intelligencer writer John Cook has a local high tech/venture blog at It's purely a coincidence, I'm sure, given the fact that the Seahawks are playing the Steelers on Sunday, but John emailed me today for some thoughts on Pittsburgh's venture and entrepreneurial communities. I wrote him back; I'm looking forward to his story. Stay tuned for a link.

North America gears up for brains against brawn Super Bowl

DETROIT (Reuters) - When the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks meet in Super Bowl XL on Sunday it will be a clash of American styles and cultures, blue collar verses white collar. Computer nerds verses steel workers.

Lining up at one end of Ford Field will be the Seahawks, the team with trendy teal uniforms from the rainy north west famous for gourmet coffee and home for billionaire computer geeks.

At the other end, the Steelers, the four-times Super Bowl champions with the black helmets and a gritty reputation forged from the local mills and coal mines.

While the two teams can draw similarities for their play on the field, off it they are as different as their owners and the beer drinkers and latte sippers who support them.
