The Pittsburgh - Hawaii Connection

The feel-good story of the New Year featured University of Hawaii graduate assistant football coach Brian Kajiyama, who uses a wheelchair to get around and a computer-assisted speaking device to communicate. He has cerebral palsy. (The 'Bows undefeated regular season took them to the Sugar Bowl, where the team was crushed yesterday by Georgia, 41-10.)

The Pittsburgh connection? (There's always at least one, and I'm surprised that the local MSM didn't pick this up.) Kajiyama's speaking technology was produced by local firm DynaVox.

(Thanks, Christian.)
