I think leaving dog poo on the sidewalk is just as impermissible as tagging, but sometimes two wrongs make a right?
Anyway, somebody’s fed up with some of the dog owners of the Between Alamo Square And The Projects part of town…
This kind of thing, as seen recently on the windswept Geary Transit Corridor…
You know what I think? I think that sometimes companies pay money to Clear Channel Outdoor so that it will send part of that money to out sad-sack SFMTA and then maybe SFGov / the SFMTA will then look kindlier upon said generous companies. So it’s kind of more like a bribe / kickback / apology than a pure, earnest attempt at advertising.
I could cite examples…
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…
As seen by William Diaz:
I’m not sure what a hate crime is anymore.
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?
[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…
As here, when the covering paint was still wet:
Here’s how things looked a few days ago.
You know these days, it seems I’ll see something on Twitter one week and then it will appear as graffiti the next week…
