Pittsburgh Tech Falling Behind?

Pittsburgh may be grabbing some quick headlines with the push to snag Google-based broadband IT, but Pittsburghers know that the surest way to the region's heart is through its stomach, not its ISPs.

And on that score, Pittsburgh's leading edge - its Cupcake Class - may be falling behind the tech curve.

Montreal's Clever Cupcakes is offering cupcakes with edible QR Codes that work - the codes point to the Montreal Science Center. Check them out at left.

An earlier version of the Clever Cupcake QR code pointed to the company's website.

Why didn't Pittsburgh think of that? The ball is in the Burgh's cupcake court.

As for the great Google Chase...   I still wonder who is our Al Franken?

I'm giving-up on cupcakes and going back to Prantl's Chocolate Sour Cream cake.

Yea, but we put beer in our cupcakes (thanks East End Brewing), that has to count for something.
