How a family joined the Pittsburgh Global Game Jam and won the Google prize

What happens when you bring gamers together for 48-hours of intense, sleepless game development?
 
The Global Game Jam, the world’s largest game creating event, took place last weekend in Pittsburgh and around the world. Think of it as the Olympic event for game development, one that gets a global buzz going while investigating what it takes to put together a cool and creative game.
 
The Pittsburgh Game Jam got underway at CMU’s ETC on Friday with the announcement of this year’s secret theme: “We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” From there, neurons began firing around the world and for the next 48 hours.
 
By the time it was over, 4,207 games were generated from more than 70 different countries.
 
“Some folks show up as teams, others arrive and hook up with people they meet at the jam.Then they stock up on pizza and spend the next two days working feverishly to complete whatever their sleep-deprived caffeine-infused imaginations can dream up,” says Gary Gardiner, creator of Dream Flight Adventure.
 
Gardiner made the weekend a family affair, forming a team with his wife and three sons, the eldest of whom is seven. The boys developed a storyline about two boys who live on a farm and mistakenly release all the chickens from the chicken coop. From this premise, “Chicken Chase” was born, with the boys contributing on design and game obstacles.
 
Gardiner developed the software and his wife worked on the music. The game won the Google Award for Technical Achievement; an iPad App will be out in two weeks.
 
While most of the participants were pulling all-nighters at ETC, Gardiner and family got some sleep. But “it was really neat to have my boys up there playing with professional game developers,” he says. "I pride myself on being a pretty creative guy, but this idea would have never have happened without my kids. It was a great family project.”

The latest in dining, dating and dressing in Pittsburgh? That's PGH YOU

Getting real world digital experience is what PGH YOU is all about, a student-driven publication and website created at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

This marks the third time Rob Straw, Shawn O’Mara and Tamara Pavlock have worked together to create a printed pub and online website with everything in it--videos, graphics, photography and moving social media parts.

While the first two efforts targeted 30-year-old males—PGH Man—PGH YOU was created with young male and female urban professionals in mind, those living the life in Pittsburgh and looking for good dining, dating and dressing.

“Students today need these resume builders,” says O’Mara. “It helps them create a portfolio and teaches networking.”

“Only a few college students have a full-blown publication like this in their portfolio,” adds Pavlock. “It’s totally unique.”

The students came together for 11 weeks and mapped out the undertaking, which involved the creation of a website creation, videos and motion graphics. ABC Printing donated – for the second time – the printing of the publication.  

The glossy print publication is generating quite a buzz on campus, says Pavlock.

“The class is a bit like a reality show,” adds O’Mara. “They dedicate a lot of time to this. It’s a very popular class.”

Pittsburgh rapper Kellee Maize says Toyota's Prius suits her style

There’s good corporate thinking and bad corporate thinking says Kellee Maize.  
 
For the Pittsburgh rapper, music is all about raising social and spiritual consciousness and many of her songs have an earthy, new age slant to prove it. ("Have you heard, about a magic place, we call Peaceburgh?" ) So when Toyota USA asked her to endorse their cars in a national advertising campaign, she considered it carefully.  
 
It was the Toyota Prius that sold her, she says.  
 
“It wasn’t an easy choice,” says Maize who grew up in Central Pennsylvania and attended University of Pittsburgh before making Pittsburgh her home. “Toyota takes the idea of being green very seriously. I actually have this dream of touring across the country with a fleet of Priuses.”
 
For an unsigned, independent artist like herself to land a three-year deal as the new face of Prius is a big deal, she says. She credits the accomplishment to the online buzz she has generated the last few years through YouTube. More than one million fans have downloaded her music for free online.
 
“More than 12,000 YouTube videos have used my music,” she adds. “It’s given me a platform that has helped me to grow organically. The strategy has paid off.”
 
Her music has been a passion since she began performing at the tender age of nine; her first group was Thunder and Lightning, but “we mostly just argued about who was thunder and who was lightning,” she says. She classifies her music as conscious rap revolving around spiritual, political, and feminist themes.
 
“I want to always be able to say what I want to say,” she says.
 
Maize is also a co-founder of Nakturnal, a creative marketing and events firm based in Pittsburgh, which she founded with two other women. She also devotes time to singing and raising money for several humanitarian concerns including a nonprofit called Committed, which works to ensure a quality education for the children of migrant workers in Nepal, and homelessness.
 
Maize will release her fifth album “5th Element” close to Valentines Day, perfect timing for a release that is all about love.
 
“I think Toyota took notice of the fact that I talk about environmentalism,” she says. “I’m staying true to my values.”

'Internet Famous,' a raunchy comedy with an all-Pittsburgh cast+crew

What happens when a young urban professional living in Pittsburgh goes viral and finds fame on the internet?
 
Internet Famous is a new web comedy series that premieres online tonight, Jan. 22, with a red carpet showing at the Hollywood Theatre in Dormont.
 
Creators Chris Lee (Pitt, MFA grad) and Tom Williams (Pittsburgh Filmmakers) met through friends and quickly found they had a mutual admiration for “good comedy." So they wrote a script and staged a successful Kickstarter campaign, which earned them about $7500, giving them enough to hire an all-Pittsburgh cast and crew.
 
The film was shot on location throughout the city during the recurring heatwaves in July and August of 2013. Lawrenceville, the East End and Shadyside served as backdrops for the story. 

“In a lot of ways, it’s the future of TV,” says Williams. “Netflicks and Hulu are producing original content. Digital production makes it all possible.”
 
The story follows a young urban professional named Andy and his friends—they hang out together at Remedy, by the way—as he discover the highs and lows of instant celebrity and internet fame.
 
“It’s Seinfeld comes to Pittsburgh, but a little more vulgar,” says Williams.
 
The music also draws from the local music scene: The Harlan Twins, Neighbours, Nic Lawless and His Young Criminals, Delicious Pastries and The Gotobeds, to name a few. Spruce Films in Lawrenceville pitched in on the production side.  
 
Trent Wolfred plays the lead role of Andy. A grad of Penn State University, he was last seen in Lucas McNelly’s Blanc de Blanc and is a cast member at Pittsburgh Public Theatre where he is the house manager. Matthew Robison, a graduate of Point Park University, plays Andy’s sex-crazed roommate. His previous work includes local short films and videos.

Seven short webisodes were shot, all of which will be shown tonight at The Hollywood. From here, the producers are hoping to find sponsors and local investors to begin season two. Check out the trailer and premiere.

2014 DATA Awards want to be the SXSW for art+tech innovation in Pittsburgh

Move over SXSW, Pittsburgh is raising the bar and taking the annual Design, Art and Technology Awards Exhibition to the national level this year.
 
The DATA Awards have always shown off both the hottest and coolest companies on the local tech scene. In an effort to attract more attention and buzz to the scene, the event is expanding to a two-day creative summit that invites  regional and companies from across the country to come to Pittsburgh and share the love.
 
“We really want to get national exposure for Pittsburgh companies and artists,” explains Kim Chesney Harvey of the PTC. “At the same time, we want to bring leading-edge ideas here. The idea is to engage people with each other.”
 
“The closest thing to this is SXSW in Austin,” she adds. “This is homegrown. You’ll see things here you won’t see anywhere else.”
 
PTC is calling on designers and artists—from Pittsburgh to Austin, San Francisco, Chicago and New York City—to be a part of the summit as either entrants or designers. The summit will feature workshops, panels, performances and networking opportunities.
 
The summit will be capped off by the Design, Art and Technology Awards Gala, and the DATA 2014. Entrepreneur, career guru and internationally known blogger Penelope Trunk will keynote.  
 
DATA 2014 will be held at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust May 7 and 8th. The deadline for entries is Feb. 17.

Pittsburgh's rue21 takes teen retail to new heights

Last year was one of monumental growth for the Cranberry-based teen clothing retailer rue21
 
In October 2013, the company returned to the private sector with London-based Apax Partners' purchase of the retailer for $1.1 billion. It was back to business for Apax, which owned rue21 before the company went public in 2009.
 
Then things took off. Within a month rue opened its 1000th store, launched a revised store format and expanded selection for guys and hung its shingle for online business. The discount retailer for guys and girls apparel and accessories continues on a steep growth trajectory. Forbes and DDIonline recognized it as one of the fastest growing retailers in the country.
 
This month the company announced the opening of its 1007 store along with ambitious plans to open 100-125 new stores across the country (in the 47 states) every year for the next five years, says Dan Harris, director of visual merchandising for rue21. 
 
rue21 employs 500 between its Weirton, Va., fulfillment center and corporate office in Warrendale and another 10,000+ people in stores across the country. The last reported sales were in 2012 of more than $900 million. 
 
The company’s sweet spot is catering to an underserved market, putting stores in strip centers and small towns, not necessarily the malls explains Harris. “We go into areas where American Eagle wouldn’t go. We can tandem in a Walmart."

“The crazy thing is people don’t realize rue21 is based in Pittsburgh, let alone how big we are,” he says.
 
rue21 rose from the ashes of Pennsylvania Fashion, a retailer that filed for Chapter 11 back in 2002. Since then, the company has been quietly reinventing itself and growing its presence through the private and public iterations. CEO Bob Fisch came on from Casual Corner in 2001.

More recently, the stores and merchandising has undergone a bright and colorful redesign. Much of rue's success comes from contantly taking the pulse of the teen market, says Harris. 

“We can react to a trend faster than most retailers can,” he says. “A teens perception of what’s cool is changing constantly. We can buy a trend and get it out faster.”

Show us the money. Several Pittsburgh firms receive millions in funding and other news

All the venture capital and innovation news you need to know in Pittsburgh this week:
 
It’s no secret that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is supporting the promise of next generation battery startups with funding. This month Gates again lent his support to Pittsburgh-based Aquion Energy, which recently completed a $55 million Series D round.  The funding will allow Aquion to ramp up production at its Westmoreland facility.
 
New investors, in addition to Gates, included Yung’s Enterprise, Nick and Joby Pritzker of Tao Invest, Bright Capital and Gentry Venture Partners.
 
Glen Meakem’s new startup, Forever, raised more than $4 million this month toward a $16 million goal, according to SEC filings. The downtown company closed on $8.6 million funding round earlier this month.
 
Forever is a cloud-based, personal social storage site for paid members that preserves cherished media memories— vintage photographs, audio, video and digital media—in a standard format and stores it in the security of cloud, Meakem told Pop City in December.
 
Pittsburgh-based Aethon has closed on a $3 million investment from Mitsui & Co. USA, which invested $4 million in the firm in 2012. Aethon develops automated robotic technology for hospitals across the country.
 
In energy-related news, a Bucks County startup has announced plans to build a small-scale natural gas-fired power plant in Chartiers Township near MarkWest Energy on Route 591.
 
IMG Midstream of Yardley, formerly Iron Mountain Generation, says it strives to bring economic benefits to the communities in the Marcellus Shale region while “minimizing any potential negative environmental effects” through smaller-scale technologies that realize “up to a 50 percent reduction in carbon dioxide  per kWh generated when compared to traditional coal burning facilities.”

Pitt opens cutting-edge Electric Power Lab and research-based Brain Institute

University of Pittsburgh opened two new leading-edge research centers this month, an Electric Power Systems Lab and a Brain Institute.
 
The Electric Power Systems Lab was unveiled last week in the in the Swanson School of Electrical Engineering, giving the next generation of electric power engineers the tools to learn the latest in electric-grid technology.
 
Eaton in Moon Township was a major collaborator and contributer to the center, a 1,500 square-foot lab on Swanson’s “Energy Floor” filled with the latest in technical and electrical equipment. The center will foster research across a wide range of electric power areas including energy efficiency, smart grid and microgrid systems and alternative energy.
 
“This is an engineers dream,” said Daniel Carnovale of Eaton during the ribbon-cutting ceremony last week. “This will allow students to work on modern equipment that will be used for the next 20 years.”
 
“It kickoffs a new era of electrical power learning,” added William Stanchina, chair of the electrical and computer engineering department at Pitt.  “Pittsburgh has had a tradition of expertise in this area dating back Westinghouse. This will allow us to be leaders in this field.” 
 
In other Pitt news, the university announced the creation of a new Brain Institute, a $45 million research center that will delve into the mysteries of the brain to develop new treatments and cures for brain disorders.
 
Pitt has always been on the forefront of brain research, especially the areas of Alzheimer’s, polio and autism, said Mark Nordenberg, Pitt Chancellor. The Institute will focus on the areas of neurotechnology, neurogenetics, brain mapping, learning and discovery in neuroscience.
 
“We have the intellectual firepower to take a lead role in the nationwide effort to revolutionize the understanding of the brain,” he added in a prepared statement. “The creation of our Brain Institute reflects the high priority that we have assigned to this important work and will position Pitt for even higher levels of impact and achievement in the years ahead.”

Innovation that Mayor Bill Peduto wants that Pittsburgh needs

While the weather outside was frightful, the inauguration of Pittsburgh’s 60th mayor on Monday couldn’t have been warmer. 
  
From rocker Joe Grushecky intoning “…won’t you be my neighbor” with backup from the CAPA chorus, to poet Vanessa German inciting us to rise up and become change agents on our own front porches, to gospel singers and homemade pierogies, the Pittsburgh promise generated a heat all its own. 
 
“There is nothing wrong with the institutions of this city that cannot be repaired by good faith, square dealing and hard work,” Peduto told the gathered crowd at Heinz Hall.
 
“I will not make the mistake of assuming that my ascension to the office of mayor is, in itself, political reform. It is my job to turn this moment into an opportunity for reform.”
 
A self-described data-driven guy, Mayor Peduto moves into the office armed with 1100 pages of notes generated by a citizen-lead advisory committee that worked through the holidays on ideas to lead the region forward.
 
He has an ambitious to-do list of his own, as well, no less than 100 highly-detailed ways to lead the region, often tapping technology to get the job done.
 
Here’s a sampling of a few of the items on his innovation checklist, things Mayor Peduto wants that Pittsburgh needs:
 
· User-friendly government, beginning with a new cabinet position. Among the first hires will be a chief performance and innovation officer, a job expected to go to Debra Lam. Bring on big data!
 
· City streets with smarter traffic signals. Streamlined digital building permit systems and equal opportunity technology for all.
 
· A green tech and clean tech investment fund.
 
· Quality education and growing STEM opportunities for students.
 
· Showcasing neighborhoods through pedestrian way-finding. It will be interesting to see what this looks like.
 
· And GPS tracking for snow plows.
 
Let the new year and new season for the region begin.

Mobile fashion trucks dress up the streets of Pittsburgh no matter the weather

Looking for the latest in fashion in Pittsburgh is as far as your nearest mobile fashion boutique.

A small fleet of fashion boutiques have rolled out in the last year. There’s StyleTruck, the adorable pink and lavender shop on wheels owned by Jackee Ging, XX. StyleTruck specializes in fashions at affordable prices for the professional woman.

Broke Little Rich Girl made its debut about the same time last July. Owner and driver Samantha Lugo, 28, sells women’s clothing and accessories, pieces she finds on shopping trips to her hometown of New York City. The collection includes one-of-a-kind finds—many pieces are handmade—but Lugo keeps the prices reasonable.

“Women don’t want their friend to be carrying the same handbag or scarf,” she explains. “I try to find pieces that are fun, different and unique.”

BLRG, a Chevy Grumman, can be found in the Strip District on many weekends, near Marty’s Market, when it isn’t attending a special event or festival. She also sells clothing online.

Cailey Breneman’s Roadie Fashion Truck offers a vintage line from her RV-boutique. Having grown up in a retail clothing business—her family owns Yesterday News on the South Side—Breneman says she has always aspired to be a wardrobe stylist.

Roadie specializes in second-hand clothing at affordable prices and is working on developing a men’s line, which is difficult given that men rarely get rid of the clothes they own.

While Breneman, 28, occasionally joins the other two fashion trucks for events during the warmer months, she hopes to find a pop-up shop where she can operate regular winter hours.

She also hopes Mayor Peduto keeps his promise and establishes a Fashion District on Smithfield Street downtown, a thoroughfare where boutique shops will coexist.

“Pittsburgh is really ready for something like this,” she says.

The more trucks the better for all, she adds, when asked about the competition. Lugo is the local ambassador on behalf of the American Mobile Retail Association, a member organization that represents and supports awareness and service around the mobile retail business.

“Our styles and demographics are very different. It’s cool to have all of us around.”

How Penn Brewery was saved. The "ladies of lager" tell their story at Chatham this Friday.

It’s a refreshing story just waiting to be told--how two smart Pittsburgh businesswomen came to the rescue of the Penn Brewery on the North Side. 
 
Sandy Cindrich and Linda Nyman had successful careers in corporate America. Nyman worked in marketing and brand management for corporate clients like HJ Heinz and Sara Lee. Cindrich specialized in software engineering and project management for USX Steel Corporation and BNY Mellon.
 
Their husbands, business partners and craft beer drinking guys, were looking at real estate when they noticed the brewery, which was about to be shuttered and closed. The year was 2009.
 
“It was serendipitous,” says Nyman. “We were not looking for it. It came out of the blue.”
 
With the help of two other partners, the women purchased the brewery and embarked on a new path in an industry that has been traditionally male. Since then, they have rehired several of the original brewers and rebranded and created a new craft beer line.
 
The brewery is back in production on the North Side and the restaurant is again open for business.
 
“Penn was one of the first craft breweries on the scene in the entire country,” adds Cindrich. “When it closed down, people felt they were not only losing a beer they loved, but a piece of Pittsburgh history.”
 
Now they are ready to tell their story. This Friday the “ladies of lager” will speak at Chatham University’s Women Business Leader’s Breakfast Series. The event gets underway Jan. 10th from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
 
“Neither of us is the type to crave the spotlight,” says Nyman, explaining why they chose to quietly go about their work without fanfare, until now. “As much as we’d love to believe Pittsburgh adores us, we know it’s all about the beer!”
