"Officials in San Francisco published a set of recommendations Thursday to ensure that the city's ongoing work to develop its own gigabit speed fiber network doesn't violate residents' privacy rights and ensures equitable access to the internet.

If adopted, the recommendations would enable the city's network to enjoy some of highest internet consumer protections in the country. "
A "Blue Ribbon" panel leading development of citywide high-speed internet makes new calls for citizen privacy and measures to stop providers from blocking or throttling content.

A heartwarming moment three and a half years in the making.
Over the weekend, the Examiner put out an update on Scott Wiener's S.B. 827, examining the potential effects of the evolving bill on the cityscape. Aside from the obvious increase in well-served density, maps show the Westside taking on its fair share. For those aware of the racist history behind low-density zoning in the area, this is a welcomed bonus of an already necessary bill. Read more here -

The Salesforce Transit Center wants to hear from you. A community workshop is being held Wednesday, February 21st to learn more about the construction activities and the proposed Code of Conduct of the Salesforce Transit Center.
I have been following this site for a while, but unfortunately, nothing really is happening. I guess we need people on site to keep pushing, asking, and possibly demanding action from the officials.
I live in Los Angeles and I would love to move to San Francisco so I could finally ditch the car. But, prices are prohibitive and the idea of having roommates does not appeal to me given I am way past the "roommate" age.
The idea of a tiny home is extremely appealing to me - living on my own but close to other like-minded individuals, the best of all options for sure.
The push for more affordable housing ideas is actually there in the San Francisco area, so we might need someone or a group who can galvanize people and become a "real" movement.
I would love to help somehow, so if anyone has ideas please put them forth.
