Now maybe it’s the four-figure check direct from Mountain View, CA what’s sitting in my wallet that’s influencing me here, but I don’t think so. I’ll just say it: Gaia Bless Google. And here’s why.
These days, the Online Axis of Evil is composed of Facebook, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) what’s currently running the People’s Republic of China, and [INSERT YOUR CHOICE HERE,] right? Well, Google’s fighting all of them, tempering them, making them behave better, all the time. Hurray! Hurray for Google.
So sure, maybe they sent a multi-hued car to your street to packet-sniff your cellie ‘n stuff like that. But they didn’t mean it or nothing.
So Google, keep on keeping on, that’s the Message of the Day.
Ouch. Airbnb (formerly Air Bed & Breakfast or something) is a San Francisco company associated with a famous incident what just happened to a San Francisco woman, so a Taiwan television outfit has seen fit to, once again, make a mockery of the 415.
See? Airbnb is supposed to be better than craigslist if you want to rent out your apartment to a stranger for a few days and I suppose in some cases it is better than using CL.
Anyway, this is NMA-TV’s impression of craigslist:
And here’s the story, per NMA-TV:
“Airbnb guests trash, burglarize apartment.
Web start-up Airbnb has benefited from the recent tech boom.It just raised $112 million US dollars from investors.It is now valued at $1 billion.
Although Craigslist allows those wishing to rent out their homes to travelers,it has a sketchy reputation. Airbnb is user friendly with a shiny interface.
However, a San Francisco woman recently rented out her apartment through Airbnb. She left her keys for her guests before going on a trip.
The guests ransacked her apartment,stole her stuff and left a huge mess. It took the woman 14 hours to get through to an Airbnb employee.”
And here’s the whole story from EJ, the San Francisco woman who rented out her apartment to the wrong people.
I don’t know how Airbnb can fix this kind of situation…
Feel free to pay too much money for SanFranciscoMayor.Com. See?
“Purchasing sanfranciscomayor.com can help you become the market leader. If you are interested please visit: http://www.bigcountrydomains.com/sales/06H6Mv2hj47R“
But, I don’t know, if I owned this domain name, I’d feel obligated to not make people think that I was the real mayor, Mayor Edwin Lee, San Francisco, 2011- 2020.
Here’s the story straight, straight from the MSM’s Brent Begin. Now, here’s the back-and-forth between somebody, some random or somebody’s proxy and Kevin Montgomery at the Uptown Almanac. And here’s the cache of a post at AMOEBLOG:
Could it be that Amoeba is ascared of getting sued?
Should Amoeba have been scared?
Can’t tell. Not sure what’s wrong with the post they put up.
Anyway, that’s something to ponder as you listen to Song A Day #815: Jeanmarie Guenot and Her Quest To Kill SF Nightlife from Jonathan Mann
Well this is bold, going straight after the Big G:
“Duck Duck Go is a search engine based in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania that uses information from crowd-sourced sites (like Wikipedia) with the aim of augmenting traditional results and improving relevance. The search engine philosophy emphasizes privacy and does not record user information”

But I don’t know, should a new search engine be allowed to come to town and attract new customers without reaching a consensus with all the existing players? Discuss.
Let’s see if the Stanford MBAs down Mountain View way start crying over this one…
