Perfectly Nice Article About Philly’s Tech Growth Soiled By Yet Another “Philly Is A Real City” Quote From A Transplant
One of the nice offshoots about last week’s Philly Tech Week was and will continue to be articles like this one in Fast Company that break down the hype and get into the nitty-gritty of how and why the city is making great leaps in the tech sector. But seriously, AGAIN? Another person saying something along the lines of “This city is real life?” Did 300 years of beautiful American history somehow lead this person and all of the other friggin’ Etsy transplants who think they discovered this place think that, up until Indy Hall opened, THIS PLACE WAS A FUCKING MIRAGE? Sorry, it just sticks in our craws a bit. The actuality and realness of Philadelphia, to us, has never been up for debate, unless we were taking psychedelic drugs. Onward.
