Pitt's Bytes 7.30.07

From the Tech Council: Entrepreneurs Network Social "You're an entrepreneur. You work hard to grow your business. You deserve a break! [PB note: Sounds like a cross between Miller Time and a Big Mac Attack!] Join like-minded entrepreneurs and make new connections as HELP, Idea Foundry, Innovation Works, the Pittsburgh Technology Council and TiE Pittsburgh present the Entrepreneurs Network Social. Enjoy hot food, cold drinks and engaging conversation at The Library, a newly renovated South Side restaurant and bar. But don't attend if you're in the mood for a long presentation: this event is strictly recreational! Sponsored by Citizens Bank and the School of Business, Duquesne University, Entrepreneurial Studies. Date: Thursday, August 2 Time: 5 - 7 p.m. Venue: The Library, 2304 E. Carson St., South Side Council and TiE Member Cost: $20 Non-Member Cost: $30 . . . Pop City has hired a writer to cover the local tech beat. Welcome Debra Smit, and check out PC's "Pittsburgh Innovates" page . . . Shameless self-promotion: I'm part of a local group that is brainstorming foundations for an emerging "new" Pittsburgh. Our work was featured in the Post-Gazette's new, regular "Diaspora Report." Will economic development pros take notice? Maybe. . . . The Post-Gazette painted a picture yesterday, contrasting the contemporary friction between Pgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and County Executive Dan Onorato, on the one hand, with the public/private partnerships that produced Renaissance I and Renaissance II, on the other hand. And some people wonder why Pittsburgh isn't a great city today? Maybe Mike Tomlin should be in charge. The man has a plan.
