Hey, is That Notorious “Bluewolf” Salesforce DreamForce Chalk Ad Company Making Amends with SFMTA Bus Advertising?Thursday, October 8th, 2015
I’ve never seen an ad like this afore:
How long did it take to create, one wonders? About two seconds?
No matter, I’m sure SFGov is starting to think of the bluewolf as a good corporate citizen now…
Dreamforce Nightmare: Ohio-Based Advertising Firm Glee-fully Mocks SF – Boasts of “Earned Media Impressions” from Illegal GraffitiTuesday, September 15th, 2015
And here’s the write-up by Joe Garofoli: “Tech company defies San Francisco graffiti ban at Dreamforce.”
Now let’s hear from the people at CivitasNow, the company what promised to clean up the sidewalks of SoMA and the Financh yesterday afternoon:
@bsinram 14 hours ago We’re making headlines from coast to coast @CivitasNow http://blog.sfgate.com/techchron/2015/09/14/tech-company-defies-city-ban-against-putting-logo-on-sidewalks/ …,
You see that? They think this whole sitch is funny.
I think I see the problem here, I think the CivitasNow people are thinking they might get a ticket for two or three or four or five figures, but, IRL, what they might end up with is a settlement for six or seven figures if they continue to embarrass / piss off / mock area residents, such as a Mayor, or a City Attorney, or even a Benioff or two.
Hey CivitasNow, hey Bluewolf, do you think there might be a reason why some DreamForcers covered up some of your numerous chalk ads?
Perhaps you all have reached Pariah status, but you don’t even know it?
Marc Benioff’s DREAMFORCE 2015 Starts Off on the Wrong Foot: Illegal Ads from “Bluewolf” Mar Sidewalks of SoMAMonday, September 14th, 2015
[UPDATE: This webpage (“Dreamforce Swag”) was just pulled by “Bluewolf.” Here’s what it used to look like:
So that takes care of that.
So, no you didn’t have permits, right, Bluewolf people? Or if you do, then share the info – it sure would interesting to see that. Thank you, drive through. END OF UPDATES]
Via KatieOnViolin, you can’t do this:
Oh, what’s that, it’s only temporary? Well, that’s what they all say.
And there’s this:
“Citizens can obtain permits for sidewalk stencils, but there is no legal means for a company to advertise using sidewalk stencils, Gordon said. Still, many companies throughout the years have created guerrilla marketing campaigns on city sidewalks, including Zynga and IBM.”
What you bluewolfers ought to do, you know, wikiwiki, is come on downstairs, buy some brushes at a CVS, and then start scrubbing…
“Marissa Mayer in Conversation with Marc Benioff” at the Castro on October 30th – Via INFORUM, the Commonwealth Club’s “Innovation Lab”Thursday, August 21st, 2014
I’m figuring Marc’s going to go all 60 Minutes on Marissa during his hard-hitting “interview” at the Castro Theatre, j/k.
More seriously, check out the “nosebleed” tickets for just $10.
Hey, both these people have had photo shoots at San Francisco Magazine. Benioff was so enamored, he’s using one of their photos as his g0-to headshot these days. Mayer was featured about six years ago – I remember ’cause I had one of my photos taking up two pages – I should dig up that issue sometime. Anyway, the title of the piece had the word “Googirl” in it and I was thinking, “That’s not cricket.” So they Googled the term and then decided to change the title. These days, they don’t deign to fix their mistakes (like talking about diesel powered Boeing jets) after publication. Oh well.
And now, on with the show:
INFORUM is awarding Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!, our 21st Century Visionary Award. Marissa is only one of 25 women to run a Fortune 500 company, and No. 1 on Fortune Magazine’s “40 Under 40” list. She began her career as the 20th employee at Google.
In 2012, Mayer claimed a bigger stage with her appointment as CEO of Yahoo! In two years, Mayer has launched Yahoo! Screen Live, acquired 17 companies including Tumblr, and spearheaded facelifts for the mail app, homepage, and Flickr. Her boldness has made her a household name.
Marissa will be interviewed by Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO of salesforce.com. Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt will present the award to Marissa via a video introduction.
Join us for an evening with two giants revolutionizing the tech industry at The Castro Theatre.”

Larry Ellison, the Biggest Douchebag in the Bay Area, Cancels OpenWorld Keynote – Afraid of Marc Benioff, SalesforceWednesday, October 5th, 2011
But it looks like Oracle is running scared, huh?
No matter, you can still watch this year’s Keynote by tuning in online – it won’t be at the convention itself, it’ll be just up the street.
Artist’s conception of Larry Ellison – look for him to be even douchier come America’s Cup 2013:

(Now, speaking of Salesforce, it took a while, but finally the $omewhat-corrupt Ed Lee Admini$tration is under$tanding how Salesforce is more important to $an Francisco than glamorous Twitter and Zynga combined. Proof of this is the fact that Salesforce now gets mentioned in the same breath when Twitter and Zynga get discussed in Ed Lee press release / campaign material. Is that a good thing? I don’t know.)
Anyway, all the deets:
