WordPress WordCamp 2009 in San Francisco a Huge Success

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

UCSF‘s Mission Bay campus was all filled up yesterday with attentive youths, Genius Bar geniuses, and Laughing Squid’s Scott Beale, so that can mean only one thing – it must have been yet another one-day WordCamp from WordPress

As always, the focus is “on how to be a better blogger, on the development and future of WordPress, and other topics of interest.” Just read the WordCamp Report for the deets:

But, What Does WordPress Mean To You? That’s something to ponder as you…

Get free help from WP geniuses, such as Brian Colinger, for instance.

Or peruse the Job Board:

Or proactively look for work with your name card.

Or nosh on Southern BBQ complete with ham-hocked collard greens

And steer clear of the WordPress bully boys, with their tattoos and their flashing gang signs. There was lots of stuff to do.

Plus, attendees got American Apparel T-shirts. All this could have been yours for just $25. What a bargain.

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

As expected, yesterday’s Richmond District Town Hall Meeting went off without a hitch at the Rec Center on 18th Avenue. Take a gander to see if you want to attend the next one. And take a look at this very detailed account from StreetsBlog, just posted.

Your Government At Work. District One Supervisor Eric Mar, SFPD Richmond Station Captain Richard Corriea the San Francisco Planning Department, the Metropolitan Transportation Agency, the Department of Public Works and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition - all ready to lend an ear.

Do you people prefer PowerPoint presentations pertaining to planning? Perfect. (Personally, I’m getting a little tired of euphamistic adjectives dreamed up by department heads – you know if Vladimir Lenin’s New Economic Policy (1921) came out these days, it would probably be called Better Economy with Great New Improvements! Or something like that. Wasn’t horrible Octavia Boulevard supposed to be a “livable street?”) Anywho, MTA “Traffic Calming” Project Manager Adam Gubser was on hand and available at the Town Hall.

As were Capt. Corriea and Lt. Mark Osuna, both of whom brought pens and notepads along with their sticker-free semi-autos. Keep updated at the Richmond District Police Community Relations Forum, aka “Richmond Forum.”

And There You Have It.

Senator Leland Yee Pancake Breakfast and Town Hall Meeting a Huge Success

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

There was a good turnout at yesterday’s free pancake breakfast put on by Senator Leland Yee on Brotherhood Way yesterday. (I had spent the early morning “recycling” copper from some empty apartments in ParkMerced, so it was nice to have a little break.) Senator Yee talked about upcoming developments in Sacramento, including the May 30, 2009 deadline for getting proposed laws out of the Senate.

There were elected representatives like San Francisco Supervisor Carmen Chu and people from state agencies like CalTrans on hand as well. It was Democracy in Action. Read all about it.

Hungry constituents:

Catch up with your Senator here.

See you next year!
