If he’s the one I’m thinking about:

As seen in the Financh, lately:
And as seen from the Filbert Steps, from back in aught-five:
And here’s the documentary from aught-three…
Here’s how the formally one-way Sansome is looking at Broadway these days
And here’s the result – heading north out of the Financh:
The SFPD doesn’t mess with this mess as it can just go north in the southbound lane.
This is another kind of meh SFMTA initiative. It’s not a game-changer and it doesn’t appear that it will ever become any part of any game changer, even when added with other things…
The Motorized Tricycles of Frisco’s Financial District – Are You More Batman or More Bieber? Polaris Slingshot vs. GOcarWednesday, July 13th, 2016
And look, another trike on the same block, more or less, just moments later. It’s much cheaper. (And born in Frisco, just like those people who are quite proud to tell you they’re “born and raised” here and whatnot.)
This Bieberesque couple looked like they were both 14 – I don’t know what any age cutoff might be.
And best of all, the two-stroke GOcar engines are all gone bye bye.
All right, choose your tricycle.
I think I was on-campus, you know, down in The Valley, back in aught thirteen when I saw my first post-collegiate tech bro* getting about on an electric unicycle.
Of course now it’s ought sixteen and these things have spread to Frisco’s Financh. But this tech bro is a true master. He’s got his hands in the pockets of his cargo shorts!

*One time I called a late 30’s tech bro a tech bro and he got all pissed off, saying how he has kids in the SFUSD and so ergo, he couldn’t be a tech bro. But he works at Box! So I’m still thinking he’s a tech bro. I don’t think there’s an age cut-off…
50 vs. ONE – Or, 1 vs. FIFTY – The Anonymous Buildings of the First Block of California Struggle to Find an IdentityThursday, May 12th, 2016
Here’s John King’s take on the new sculpture / logo at 1 California. You can see it on the right here. But what else can you see – a tacked-on “50” hanging from 50 California:
Practically, these signs make things easier for newcomers to find their way around the canyons of the Financh, ’cause these generic skyscrapers are really generic.
In another universe, 50 California could have used “FIFTY” instead, and 1 California would have used a giant “1” instead, and life would have carried on pretty much the same…
