2011:

And this was yesterday during the kick-off of “Bank of America Sunday Streets* 2012″

You see, back in 2011, we opposed Bank of America, but now everything’s A-OK, it would seem.

2011 was bad for BofA, but spending a few thousand dollars on Sunday Streets makes up for that, the thinking goes.

“Financial partners include… PG&E, Lennar, Park Merced…”

Oh well.

*Kind of lackluster, actually. People don’t seem to care as much about this event as much anymore. It’s become more kind of a private-public, corporatist, corporate sell-out these days. Anyway, you can see some of its tents on the left and a few cyclists going past the Ferry Building, if you look hard enough.

The Internet Has Gone Plumb Crazy Today in San Francisco

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

What’s up with that? Earlier today, people trying to read the SFWeekly got sent to Ohio’s Cuyahoga County, in a way. More precisely, their browsers got sent to Cleveland Scene. Did somebody hack on the pooooor Weekly? Was this some kind of joke against Ohio’s Mistake By the Lake or agin Village Voice Media? Now who would do a thing like that?  Thankfully, things are back to normal now.

But what about over at the San Francisco Sentinel? Some web surfers interested in learning about the people working for Proposition G and Lennar Corporation weren’t able to access this page. All they could see is “Not Found” and “Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn’t here.” Isn’t that a shame?

But through the miracle of the cache, here’s the missing webpage:

After all, information wants to be free and available, doesn’t it? 

Wasn’t it Chairman Mao who said, “Let a hundred flowers bloom, let the hundred schools of thought contend”? It sure was. So, let’s stop all this internet fooferall and stop messing with peoples’ websites.

Capische?
