"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.

San Francisco Mayor Mark Farrell, who chairs the city's Blue Ribbon Panel on Municipal Fiber, released a report identifying key recommendations intended to thwart attempts by internet service providers to sell consumer data or compromise net neutrality principles. If adopted, the recommendations would enable the city's network to enjoy some of highest internet consumer protections in the country. "



San Francisco prioritizes net neutrality in latest citywide fiber report

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.

San Francisco Housing Action Coalition

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 -

A state bill seeking to solve California’s housing crisis by encouraging denser, taller housing near transit could force a striking, historic rezoning of much of San Francisco. Senate Bill 827, …

Hello everyone,
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.

There are more parcels available in the east bay (El Cerrito, Richmond) but I am sure there are restrictions, ordinances around having tiny houses on the lots, especially without any primary building structure.

I agree...I had to move out of my downtown studio because I ran out of savings and my income was not cutting it. Now I am back to commuting 6-hours a day from Sacramento and it's painful. I'm over the whole roommate area and renting shared space cost wise is the same as commuting from the comfort of my condo. So I am planning to get a tiny house this year and would love to have a location in SF to put it in.

Who would be the best person to transfer ownership of this thread to? Chelsea may not be fully engaged on this as she has several other projects going on right now.
