Not directly development related but since things have been a little slow lately I thought I'd post:

Pittsburgh named one of 4 U.S tech hubs to watch in 2018
Other three were Ann Arbor (?), Indy, and Raleigh

https://venturebeat.com/2017/12/27/4...watch-in-2018/

I thought this part was interesting:
“In 2016, the number of patents issued to Pittsburgh’s major research universities — Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh, and Duquesne University — reached a 10-year high, according to a report from Pittsburgh seed-stage investor Innovation Works, while the number of spin-off companies generated by these universities has remained relatively steady.
And this:
"The Innovation Works report also pointed out that the city secured the fifth highest number of venture rounds per million residents in 2016 at 40.8 — behind only San Francisco, San Jose, Boston, and Austin."
