Here’s the pitch..
…and here’s the story, from a couple years back.
You cannot monetize public assets for individual company gain. Just because an app can be built, doesn’t mean it should be.
I’m a Co-Founder and CEO of a San Francisco based startup called CARMAnation (www.carmanation.com). We look to help solve parking issues via the true intentions of the sharing economy – working with the community to benefit the community. Our users share their PRIVATE available parking spots with one another.
Having tech startups trying to solve the parking problems with their own unique approach means there is a need to disrupt the industry. Technology is a wonderful thing, it can solve/simplify a lot of problems, but it has to be done right, otherwise “Monkey Parking” is what happens.”
I wonder how they’re doing.
How would you water this wobbly putting green high up near Turtle Hill / Grand View Park? Do you wait for the rain of Yosemite to accumulate and then make its way through hundreds of miles of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct to get to Frisco and then have somebody pump it up to your house so that you can waste “America’s Best Drinking Water” for your own suburban-style glorification?
I think that’s the system, man.
But brown is the new green, man.
The Advisability of Riding Your Bike Through the Bunker Road Tunnel Whether the Light is Green or NotTuesday, June 28th, 2016
Here it is, your Bunker Road Tunnel* to Rodeo Beach and beyond.
The driver of this old Datsun(!) pickup truck seemed to be giving this cyclist a little bit of room, but then a shout came out…
…from this guy going the other way. So whoops, the Datsun driver moves a yard or two to the right. Thusly:
Bikes have dedicated lanes in this tunnel but cars don’t. Does that mean that bikes don’t have to wait up to five minutes for a green light the way cars have to? I know not. The surfer dudes in the 4WD pickup could not possibly look more like Marin Locals, like Regulars on this stretch of road, but the driver was surprised to see a cyclist going the other way? Now because it’s a tunnel, shouting works, but what if dudes had had the radio on and couldn’t hear? There could have been an accident.
A single-lane tunnel carries Bunker Road from the Rodeo Valley to U.S. 101. Built in 1918, this tunnel is known as Baker-Berry Tunnel but also known as the Bunker Road Tunnel or the Five Minute Tunnel. A date stamp on the western entrance to the Baker-Barry Tunnel lists 1994, which may have been the year the tunnel was retrofitted for earthquake protection or reconstructed for other reasons. Additional work was completed in 2013 to allow for wider approaches for bicyclists. A traffic signal governs the flow of traffic into the tunnel, since only one direction may proceed at a time.
*Some mock the Yelp for rating a tunnel:
“Solid four-star tunnel… Screw you, Yelp.”
“What can I say, it’s a hole in the ground..lol”
How Forest Hill Sees Itself / How MUNI Sees Itself – Mural Depicts Frisco as a Bucolic Ireland with Detached Single-Family HomesWednesday, April 27th, 2016
Hey look – it’s the streetcar what’s named Desire:
Or at least it’s somebody’s view of what big city living should look like.
Lover I’m off the streets
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire
And best of all, if we’re looking at the History of Forest Hill, and I think we are, there’s not any pesky Chinese laundryman playing basketball on his roof across the street…
A View of the East Bay From Top to Bottom: Mt Diablo, Oakland, San Francisco – How an Accident of History Put Part of The City on Alameda IslandFriday, April 8th, 2016
Here you go:
The Port of Oakland showed respect for the SF City Limits – can you see how the landfill project in the upper right ends abruptly? That’s the border. But the US military just didn’t care and it kept filling until it was satisfied. (You can see how the SF part looks different – it’s a wetter / greener area.)
Ans here’s another way of saying it – see our little homeslice?
Anyway, lots of people still don’t believe me. But you do, right, Gentle Reader?
That’s a WRAP: This #38 Geary Articulated Bus Couldn’t Possibly Have Any More Advertising on It – Super Bowl-Related?Wednesday, February 17th, 2016
I suppose this was yet another Dreaded Sunny Day Way Out West in The Richmond District, so that’s why so many windows are open? (I’ll bet the ClearChannel people would like to have a windows-shut-all-the-time policy, just guessing.)
Anywho, this is one remarkable wrap:
I’m thinking our corrupt MUNI SFMTA just gave away ad space to the NFL for #SB50 lately, so if we’re generating any kind of money from this non-Puppy Monkey Baby ad for Mountain Dew, that’s fine with me.
It’s just striking seeing this thing, that’s all…
Unless I’m Mistaken, What This “GREEN DIESEL ONLY!” Sticker on This School Bus Means is Really “DIESEL ONLY”Friday, January 15th, 2016
The basic point of having a DIESEL ONLY sticker next to the fuel filler is to tell people to not to try to put gasoline into a diesel bus. So tacking on the word “green” in front seems to be more of a marketing effort:
What if one put some of the other seemingly infinite types of diesel into this rider – what would happen?
Nothing, I’ll bet.
Reminds me of the phrase “clean coal.”
On It Goes…
A Rare, Non-Military C-130 Over Frisco: Lynden Air Cargo Lockheed L-100-30 Hercules Flying North, To AlaskaWednesday, December 16th, 2015
These are some of the Lockheed C-130 military airplanes I’ve seen over town over the years, but this here Lynden Air Cargo Lockheed L-100 is the first civilian version I’ve ever spotted.
As seen looking south on Laguna:
