Its time for another PopCity Live. I attended the first of the PopCity Live series and was really impressed. Every month or so, the folks from PopCity Media put together a group of local of experts on a particular topic for a panel discussion and questions from the audience. This is a great chance to learn about some really interesting people and things in Pittsburgh. The events are FREE and are followed by a free reception with some tasty treats. I can say this is one of the best events I attended last year. Please rsvp ahead of time (just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org) so they can have a name tag ready for you when you arrive.
I think this panel on Green Jobs is going to be really interesting. Pittsburgh has a great opportunity to be a green city, and there are already a lot of people working on that now. I have had the opportunity to get to know Nathaniel Doyno in the past few years and I know he has been doing some really great things with Steel City Bio Fuels. The other panelists look very interesting too.
Labor = Green!
