I Hope This Isn’t How SFGov Routinely Fixes Flat Tires on Its Rec and Park Electric Carts

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

The thrown shoe on this ride was manifest, but if that’s been the only thing wrong with it the past week then hauling it off with this mobile crane seems a bit much…

In mitigation, they could have used an even more expensive medivac chopper to airlift it out of there…

It’s a giant ice cream truck, with less horsepower than some Honda Accords.

Now the font on the side isn’t comic sans, but it seems a little bit comical to me:

Didn’t realize we had one of these. Perhaps we received a little Homeland Security money to pay for it, IDK.

I’m sure everybody was impressed at its debutante ball / first “MCU rally” in Sacramento a couple years back.

Look it’s the new Android-free Samsung Z

Coming to a car near you – a Land Rover in this case:

And Intel is on the scene, pushing its very inexpensive NUCs, the so-called Next Unit of Computing:

Do I know what’s going to happen with Tizen or the other newer OSes?

No, not at all.

Anyway, the big show ends today – see you there (again)!

Tizen Developer Conference 2014
#TDCSF14
The 3rd annual Tizen Developer Conference is a technical conference for Tizen developers, App developers, ISVs, Platform designers, Operators, OEMs, Hardware vendors, Software vendors, Open source enthusiasts, and anyone engaged in Tizen.

Tizen development has been primarily focused on mobile and in-vehicle infotainment the past few years, at the developer conference last year we focused largely on building our ecosystem and application development around these platforms.

Tizen is expanding beyond Mobile and IVI into a plethora of new devices, join us at this year’s developer event to explore the new opportunities Tizen is creating in this new era of the Internet of Things.

This year’s event will be held at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square from June 2-4. Visit our “Attendee Information” page for more information on the venue.

SCHEDULE

What to expect
Never been to a Tizen Developer Conference? Wondering what to expect this year?

Tizen Developer Conference is all about developer enablement. From keynotes to sessions to developer labs, the goal is to transfer knowledge from the world’s experts in Tizen to you.

The Keynotes:

At a high level, the keynotes help put Tizen into context within the industry. First, representatives from the Tizen Technical Steering Group will talk about the platform and future directions. You’ll also hear from Mark Bryan of iControl, one of the leading home automation, putting Tizen into context within the Internet of Things. In addition, Professor Lam from Stanford University will discuss how compelling apps can be easily created for wearable technologies like the Gear 2.

The Sessions:

CFP, and are excited to share the conference schedule with you. We’ll have a broad variety of topics for app and platform developers alike. At a high level:

Platform development, for those working on Tizen source code.
App development, with sessions on HTML5 and the native APIs.
Tutorials and community, which includes porting Tizen to new devices, how to use the SDK, how to create
Tizen system images, etc.
TV, for more info on the Tizen TV architecture and app development.
IVI, which covers In-Vehicle Infotainment.
Ecosystem, which includes porting from other platforms to Tizen.
Wearables, for those developing apps for wearable devices.
IoT, which covers Tizen for Internet of Things.
This is the single largest gathering of Tizen developers worldwide. It’s a great place to expand your knowledge and refine your skills.

The Developer Lab:

What do you do with what you learned in the sessions? How about some hands-on implementation training?

Near the end of the conference we’ll have a longer session dedicated to Tizen app developers. This will be a hands-on session where you will learn how the Tizen app development process works, from setting up the SDK to developing and deploying an app.

It Takes a Village (of SFPD Cops) to Arrest a Union Square Felon During Christmastime

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Man, the cops are all over the place in and around Union Square these days, the better to protect the all-important holiday shopper.

So that means SFPD vehicles parked all over, as a show of force for newly-arrived felons, including your Mobile Command Centers One, Two, and/or Three, and beat cops just standing around the corner of Fifth and Market answering tourists’ requests about which direction is the Metreon, that kind of thing.

And if you’re a drug dealer, the SFPD will literally tell you to conduct your business a few blocks up Market near Turk, you know, in the Twitterloin containment / enterprise zone, where you belong.

A half-dozen cops, one felon, Market Street betwixt Fifth and Sixth:

Don’t click to expand, in fact, shrink it down if you want, but, just saying, there’s always a reason when I post a messed-up filtered photo… 

Look for things to get back to normal starting the morning of January 1, 2013…
