Isn’t it ironic?

In any event, our Exploratorium is doing fine at its new location.

Look Who Else was Doing Chalk Ads on the Sidewalks of San Francisco: Paramount Pictures – “What is CLOVERFIELD? 1-18-08″

This one flew under the radar, AFAIK:

Seven years later, here in 2015, you can’t get away this kind of thing anymore…

Uber Beats Lyft Again! – They Both Put Illegal Chalk Ads on Our Sidewalks, But Only Lyft Gets Busted – Plus, a Shakedown

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

A couple years back I passed by this scene on Market, so then I contacted the Uber people by email on my cell…

uberr1a

…and I was all, “Can you do that? I don’t think you can do that.”

Why? Because it’s a chalk ad on a Frisco sidewalk and that aint kosher. I mean, I didn’t know for sure, maybe somebody had approved this and the Uber people had permits, who knows. I was simply “issue-spotting,” as they say.

So then, a half-hour later, the Uberers had these ads hastily obliterated, more or less, as best they could.

And that was that, back in 2013.

And now comes Lyft in 2015 with hopsc0tch chalk on the Streets of San Francisco:

Except that SFGov is now lowering the boom on Lyft.

(And there might be some shakedown to take money from Lyft to give it to those ugly “SF Beautiful,” people, who are now infamous for suing the City and County of San Francisco? That sounds wrong.)

Anyway, Uber beats Lyft, once again.

San Francisco Says NOPE to E-Cigarettes, You Know, Officially

Apparently, we, as the second largest town in the bay area, are all saying NOPE to e-cigs and we’re spending money to send that message all the way to North Carolina:

Sponsored Link: Your Honda Story Could Be In Honda NorCal’s Next Short Film!

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

I know all about Honda, the Founder, ’cause I read this book back in the 1980’s. I’ll tell you, Mr Honda was obsessed with the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy motorcycle races – that was a big part of the biography, IIRC. As you can see by the prices of used copies, that book is now a collector’s item.

Speaking of which, if you’re among those people who’ve enthusiastically held on to your Honda over the years and decades, this offer is definitely for you:

The Northern California Honda Dealers Advertising Association is giving Honda owners an opportunity for their Honda “special moments” to be included in a short film produced and distributed online.

Your Honda “special moments” can include almost anything where a Honda vehicle has played a special role in your life, like:

 Driving you to the hospital for the birth of a child

 Your first vehicle owned as a married couple

 A memorable road trip taken in a Honda

 A Honda that’s been in the family for generations

 Any unique modifications done to a Honda that display your personality

 Why you chose Honda over another car brand

The key is to tell your story the best way you can. Be emotional, factual, exciting, entertaining…whatever works best for you.

It’s really easy to enter, just upload your entry to http://bit.ly/11t0nrv

by Jan 31, 2015 at 11pm Pacific Standard Time. Your story must be 1,500 characters or less, and should include a photo showing you (or the owner) and the vehicle. Winning submissions will be featured in Honda’s #NorCalGetsIt campaign as short films.

Hurray! The Workers from FIXED, the Parking Ticket Fixing Startup, are No Longer Stapling Ads to Windshield Parking Tickets

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Back last year, people’d be stapling the ads for Fixed onto official SFMTA parking tickets.

I don’t know if they’ve given up on stapling altogether, but this paper clip is an encouraging sign

Actually, I’d recommend that the profit-driven Fixed people not even touch an official SFMTA notice, but baby steps, baby steps.
