Perhaps of interest to you if you're in town, and/or to IP.

The student organization Carnegie Mellon Students for Barack Obama is hosting a dynamic event showcasing Senator Obama’s progressive policies on innovation, technology, the Internet, and how these policies mean more jobs for Pennsylvanians.

Barack Obama has made innovation a cornerstone of his vision for America. Pittsburgh has also embraced advanced technologies, forward- looking innovators, and a trained workforce to rebuild after steel's collapse.

Pittsburgh's leaders will discuss their triumphs and challenges, what innovation means for the region, and how more economic growth would be possible under President Obama, on Tuesday, September 23 at 7:00 pm in the Alumni Concert Hall in the College of Fine Arts, Carnegie Mellon University.

Speakers include

·                     Nathan Martin, CEO of Deep Local
·                     Sean McDonald, CEO of Precision Therapeutics
·                     More to be announced.
Moderator:  Jon Peha, Professor at Carnegie Mellon University
