While I Was Away

I was out of town for several days last week. Interesting things that I missed:

The American Economics Association is consolidating its publishing activities in Pittsburgh. If only local economists could count on a home town advantage in the publishing process!

The Riverlife Task Force got some nice PR for its efforts.

According to Pop City, Pittsburgh's Life Sciences Greenhouse and Cleveland's BioEnterprise are partnering on unspecified economic development projects in the biosciences.

Pittsburgh got to pat itself on the back with its selection as a "City of the Future" by a panel convened by Foreign Direct Investment magazine. (Post Gazette coverage) (Pop City coverage). The Allegheny Conference must be handing out the SPF 50. The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!

Actually, I shouldn't be cynical about this last thing. Once in a while, it's a good thing for Pittsburgh to stand up and agree with the rest of the world. This really is a pretty nice city.
