Monday, May 23rd, 2016

This kind of thing, as seen recently on the windswept Geary Transit Corridor…

You know what I think? I think that sometimes companies pay money to Clear Channel Outdoor so that it will send part of that money to out sad-sack SFMTA and then maybe SFGov / the SFMTA will then look kindlier upon said generous companies. So it’s kind of more like a bribe / kickback / apology than a pure, earnest attempt at advertising.

I could cite examples…

Word on the Street: “Adaptive Segmentation Eliminates the Attack Surface” – Well, Of Course!

Friday, May 13th, 2016

I mean, DUH:

It goes without saying, am I right?

I mean, the other way to go would be with several oblique firefly overlockers, you know, laid out in mutually supportive positions. Those attack surfaces would start wishing they were never born after tangling with a few oblique overlockers, I’ll tell you. Anyway, that’s how I’d do it, and it’d be a lot cheaper than whatever the illumio people would quote you I’m sure.

Commemorating 501 Weeks on the Streets of San Francisco: The FALLEN, FALLEN IS BABYLON Guy

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Just a guess on the 501 weeks part, but this guy’s been out there on Market a long, long time – at least since the aughts.

Anyway, this “one original” man must have “endless stories” of Life on the Street by now.

Remember when Willie Brown turned Market Street into the Champs-Élysées Of The West? I do. And then a good part of it “transformed” into the “world-class” Twitterloin.
