The Pittsburgh Technology Council’s Creative Technology Network hosted the 2012 DATA Awards last night at Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall at the Priory on the North Side, presenting awards to seven regional companies at the intersection of art and technology.

Moses traveled to Pittsburgh from New York City to talk to the DATA crowd about the next generation of social media and his new app, WeChi.
