The Blurgh Diaspora

There is a new blog on the block, The Blurgh. Pittsburgh is a place for big ideas and these bloggers are dreaming a city upon a hill:

The goal of the Blurgh is to be part of the solution.

It is the story of two people living in Pittsburgh 20 years from now. The city has a booming economy, a world-class transit system, a vibrant cultural scene, and opportunities everywhere you look.

It is a vision of what this city can become, and only one version of how we can get there. While the details in this blog will certainly be different than what actually transpires, the bigger themes will not. Pittsburgh is a city with massive potential, and that potential lives in its people, both those who currently live in the city and those who’ve moved away as part of the Pittsburgh Diaspora.

What is the Burgh Diaspora's vision for Pittsburgh? The Blurgh is another call for expatriates to help build New Pittsburgh.
