I (Heart) Pgh Feted

Congrats to www.iheartpgh.com for this nice bit today:
Straight from the heart

Existing in the vast recesses of the Internet are sites celebrating every flavor of life.

So imagine our delight when we happened across a quirky little place called I PGH (or www.iheartpgh.com). According to a little blurb on the home page, I PGH is meant to be "a guide to greatness in the city of Pittsburgh. The places and things we love the most about Pittsburgh are not always the easiest to find, so we started this little Web site to share all of the good stuff with people who are looking for reasons to love this city more."

We? Here's all we know about the founders, pulled directly from their "about us" link:

"I PGH was started by Natalia and Lindsay in the fall of 2005. After having studied, worked and lived all over the world, Natalia and Lindsay moved back home and met while working on a political campaign to engage young voters. Relieved to be back in a place where everyone knew their name (and a thousand bucks rent got you a house and not a shoebox), they agreed that their hometown was one of their favorite places in the world. ...

"Sometimes the things we love about Pittsburgh are not so easy to find, and we hope this site can help uncover some of those hidden gems. We encourage longtime and honorary Pittsburghers, transplants and ex-pats to spread the word about its awesomeness."

That's it. No last names, no contact info. Just lots of tidbits about Pittsburgh events (arts, entertainment, politics), essays and the pre-requisite plugs for I PGH T-shirts and more.

Not much more to say other than it's always noteworthy when young (we presume) Web entrepreneurs return home to battle the perceived exodus of young Pittsburghers.

It is not a just a "perceived" exodus. It is real, tabulated, and documented.

I've heard of a few cases where some companies and universities are starting to favor young, local talent to keep them in the area.

This would obviously be a board room type decision, off the books, but it's interesting nonetheless.
