Finally, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Acknowledges that Pedestrians Don’t “ALWAYS” Have the Right of Way

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Well, this is refreshing, this new bit from the SFBC.

You see, they used to go around telling peds that peds “always” have the right of way.*

But, the always is now gone from their new materials.

Do you think the SFBC learned something from this tiny WordPress blog?

I do.

To review, telling peds they always have the right of way is always the wrong thing to do.

*That was all the way back in 2012, except now this old SFBC posting is down the memory hole, lost forever. Also lost forever are the SFBC’s tax forms, which used to be posted but now are hidden away, oh well.

News: “Increased Internet Access at the Library!” – Plus, Our SFPL is Waiving Lost Card Fee – Plus Free WiFi

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Here’s a fresh press release from Our San Francisco Public Library:

Increased Internet Access at the Library!

Effective Sept. 5, library computer users will have greater access to Internet-enabled computers throughout the library system. Computer users will be able to reserve up to two one-hour sessions per day, as opposed to the current limit of one hour per day. The second hour is contingent upon availability. The increased time is in response to patron need and popular demand, and provides better service and utilization of library resources.

“The Library is dedicated to free and equal access to information,” said City Librarian Luis Herrera. “We believe that these additional hours will better serve our library patrons.”

In addition, most of the Main Library’s Internet Express computers, will have increased time limits, from 15 minutes to 30 minutes. Free Wi-Fi is available for both card holders and non-card holders at the Main Library and all branches for those who wish to bring their own devices. In addition, library patrons may be able to borrow a laptop computer for in-library use at branches when desktop computers are not available.

All library users are encouraged to apply for a free library card. Use of library computers is free to card holders, and, as part of the initiative to provide more access to our library users, Library staff will waive the lost card fee and issue a free replacement card through June 2015.”

Hurray!
