Virtual Pittsburgh

Jim Russell at Burgh Diaspora goes Jim Morris one better:
The Steelers connect Pittsburgh with its Diaspora, the framework for Morris' suggestion that Pittsburgh "overcome geography with the internet." Connectivity is an emerging metric for gauging economic development. The New Pittsburgh is already thriving in cities around the country. There are Austin Burgh and Raleigh-Durham Burgh, homes to Cool Pittsburgh.

Connecitivty is a great watchword these days; Pittsburgh couldn't do much better. Operationalizing a "Virtual Pittsburgh" takes some doing, however. Ideas? Start with Jim (Russell)'s GlobalBurgh forum.
