Bro jaywalks a bit, then is forced to stop by traffic, as seen, then starts jaywalking again – almost walked into the side of a car he did.
10th and Market:
Of course, nobody would design an intersection this way…
Here’s your Twitterloin status report:
Hey look, it’s COMING SOON FOR LEASE, which it has been for a couple years now.
Which is not to say it’s never used – the Hillary campaign used it for a few hours a few months back and the occasional conventioneer comes through, thusly:
But here’s what the promise was:
What I’m suggesting is this – if nobody wants this building, after, what, $20 million was sunk into it, then maybe it’s not a symbol of rebirth for the Tender / Twitter Loin? Perhaps it’s a symbol of all the empty promises and projections what come year after year, decade after decade?
Anyway, look for this building to continue to be COMING SOON FOR LEASE in 2017 as well…
Market in the Financh is down to just one lane, in parts, these days, right? So you can’t just stop and wait for your fare to come down an elevator, right? Frisco aint Tracy, CA, right?
After getting yelled out by Bike To Work Day, Uber driver from the South Bay scooched on over enough to let more people squeeze by.
It’s just not possible to legally pick riders up like this, sry.
On It Goes…
I ❤ Emoji-Con ’16!
You should go, Gentle Reader, and then ten years from now tell everybody how E-Con “used to be cool, like ten years ago, man.”
Emojicon is a multiple day celebration of all-things emoji that will take place November 4-6, 2016 in beautiful San Francisco.
There will be lots of things to do! See emoji art. Watch emoji films. Discuss emoji policy. Learn how brands use emoji to communicate. Get your picture taken in an emoji photo booth. Eat emoji-themed food. Suggest new emoji to members of the Unicode Emoji Subcommittee.
Mix. Mingle. Enjoy.
Emojicon is meant to be accessible to everyone will have a wide range of activities, including
Emoji Learn: a panel-and-workshop track
Emoji Play: an emoji exhibitor space/art gallery

Westfield San Francisco Centre, Level 4, #450A,, 845 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94103
I’ll tell you, I don’t have the balls to just park a ride on Market and then sass the SFMTA mounted sergeant(?) PCO’s what show up, but somebody at Sprig does, apparently. And no ticket was issued? Man, that’s lucky. (Delivering anything anywhere near the Financh is HARD, certainly.)
Can’t recall seeing two SFMTA employees on bikes at the same time, in all my years. You know, as Obama said at a fundraiser up in Pac Heights about rural Pennsylvanians who “cling” to their guns, our SFMTA clings to its cars and free parking spaces, oh well. Every SFGov agency is like this – they’ll agree in principal to get rid of / reduce their rides, but then when it comes time to actually do that, they’ll be all, “Well don’t count this car. It’s essential. Take away cars from Some Other Agency.” Poor poor SFGov, so addicted to cars it is…
