Occasional poster, Susan Constanse takes a look at this year's GA/GI festival.
No surprise--most likely because of the limitations set by funders, it's all about the local and the hyper local. Don't get me wrong, local can be great, it's just that most events here end up retreading very familiar ground, offering out of town visitors little reason to pay attention and local creatives little opportunity to develop wider networks. (Great that this year a big slice of the Pittsburgh innovation crowd booked flights to attend the SXSW festival)
Even so, one sees a lot of stuff from interactive kids projects, to technology demonstrations, animation, street performances and craft.
