The plot gets complicated from there, but it features Chris Hemsworth as a muscle-bound, MIT-trained hacker who is sprung from the clink by the FBI to help track the bad guy down. Instead of Thor’s hammer, he uses digital footprints to go after the bad guy. Last week, a bunch of real-world hacker types got an advance look at the film in San Francisco.

How this tech billionaire is getting Silicon Valley to give back to San Francisco
Hi folks -- a lot of you have probably seen that all of my posts have been coming from San Francisco. I quietly slipped away in August and spent 3 months interviewing at some of the hottest start-ups going. In my usual audacious bravado, I rushed in with no plan and no strategy...I didn't see how I was going to get a job in San Francisco if I wasn't in SF. So...very much like the 49'ers of old and hoped to find my prize at this end of the rainbow. I kept on landing interviews because of my campaign and political experience, which, as one friend put it, makes me "an odd critter" for the usual techie resumes that get floated around. I'm very pleased to say I that found a job that really is perfect for me - it combines policy expertise and entrepreneurial spirit -- Since early December I've been working at a start up called Get Insured. We are growing at a torrid pace and our goal is to be the premier IT infrastructure support software behind the state health insurance exchanges...we're already the actual .. ...
October 6, 2011 at 2:29pm  Youth (1955-75)   Steven Paul Jobs was born in San Francisco, California on February 24 1955. His biological parents, unwed college graduates Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah Jandali, had him adopted by a lower-middle-class couple from south of the Bay Area, Paul and Clara Jobs.   Young Steve grew up in a valley of apricot orchards that was already turning into the world center of computer technology: Silicon Valley. It was not uncommon to see engineers fill their garages with all kind of electronic devices in that part of California. Steve Jobs was fascinated by these, and that’s why, in 1969, he met with a computer whiz kid who shared his interests in electronics: Stephen Wozniak — commonly known as Woz. Steve and Woz quickly became friends even though Woz was five years older.   When Steve Jobs reached college age, he decided he would go to Reed College in Oregon. It was an expensive liberal arts college, way too pricey for his modest parents; but they had to keep their ...

It's night 16 of The Reed theater's 25 Days of Bond Christmas marathon, as we settle in for Roger Moore's final outing as 007 with 1985's "A View To A Kill." As we said, it was the seventh and final Bond film for Roger Moore, who had tried twice before to leave the series. He's joined on screen by Christopher Walken as the baddie, psychopathic microchip industrialist Max Zorin who plans to destroy Silicon Valley. Grace Jones is the co-heavy, as she portrays May Day, Zorin's chief henchwoman. Tanya Roberts plays the Bond girl, Stacey Sutton. Yes, that's the same Tanya Roberts that played Midge Pinciotti on "That '70s Show." Also making an appearance in this one is Patrick Macnee as Sir Godfrey Tibbett, Bond's ally. Macnee is best known for the spy he portrayed on television, John Steed on "The Avengers." In an interesting sideline, look for Maud Adams in the background on one of the Fisherman's Wharf scenes in San Francisco. While it's tough to spot her, it makes her the only Bond girl to appear in three f ...

Gianni D'Alerta made an important point at CEF's inaugural Dolphin Tank. We need a name for South Florida that captures the image that we're trying to convey.

April home prices in Bay Area hit 7-year high Thought of sharing an article I just read in Mercury news. In a milestone for the Bay Area housing market, April's home prices reached the highest levels since just before the recession began, with Santa Clara County hitting a new peak in records going back 26 years, according to a report on Wednesday. Prices for single-family homes across much of the region are at levels not seen since fall 2007, the Real Estate information service DataQuick reported. The Great Recession began in December 2007. San Francisco and Silicon Valley are more than pulling their weight Buyers flush with earnings from a booming economy are chasing a limited supply of homes for sale, and that's helping drive up prices. It's especially hard for first-time buyers looking for something priced below $500,000. But the hope remains that rising prices will draw more sellers into the marketplace, easing the shortage. The median price of a resale single-family house was $615,000 in Alameda Coun ...

Tech billionaire silent on decision to use armed guards to close California public beach: Vinod Khosla, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who co-founded Sun Microsystems – a computing pioneer perhaps best known for developing the Java programming language – took the witness stand in a civil trial on Monday regarding his purchase of Martins Beach. The civil suit was first filed in San Mateo County in March 2013 against the then-unidentified owner of the beach for painting over a billboard welcoming people to the seaside location, locking the gate, preventing entry, and hiring armed guards to keep the public out. The beach had been open to the public for 100 years, acting as a popular swimming location for the duration of that time. It is located 35 miles south of San Francisco and was especially popular among surfers trying to ride waves that are hard to find elsewhere. Private ownership of California beaches has become an increasingly contentious issue as more billionaires have come out of Silicon Valley. ...

1969- Reasons for Leaving   In the 1960s, parents of wealthy families in the Philippines often sent their children overseas to study. Among elite families in Cebu City, children were overwhelmingly -if not exclusively- sent to the United States. My sisters Margie and Gerry were sent to study at the Dominican Convent in San Rafael, California at a very young age in the 1950s and early 1960s. My brother Francis was sent to Virginia Military Academy and the University of San Francisco. Margie went on to study at the University of Santa Clara (Located in what is now called Silicon Valley) and my late sister Gerry went on to study at the prestigious Georgetown University in Washington DC. They were educated at the time when our family was at the height of its prosperity and power, the era of entertaining Philippine Presidents at home, when heads of Corporations like Cargil and US Admirals sent telegrams congratulating my mother and father on the birth of ‘little dickie’ (ie. me- my first name is Richard). ...

Bitcoin transactions can be tracked by governments very easily and government regulations are coming that will require all Bitcoin exchanges to identify in detail all buyers and sellers of Bitcoin. Bitcoin is NOT a libertarian instrument to battle government."

There are 56 billionaires in the Bay Area, most of which live in Silicon Valley and San Francisco. The complete list for 2014:
Silicon Valley billionaire buys record life policy worth $201 million (INR 1200 Crores) San Francisco: An unnamed Silicon Valley billionaire has purchased the world's most valuable life insurance policy, worth $201 million. The man who cobbled the deal together said Saturday that it took seven months and 19 insurance companies to put together a deal that surpasses a $100 million policy sold to Hollywood mogul David Geffen in 1990. "No one company can afford to take a $201 million hit," said Dovi Frances, the financial adviser who represents who he calls a "well- known billionaire." The Guinness Book of World Records announced the surpassing of Geffen's record on Thursday. Guinness officials spent about three months reviewing records, Frances said. "It was worse than any audit you can think of," he said. Guinness credits Frances with the record for selling the policy, surpassing United Kingdom life insurance salesman Peter Rosengard who helped put together Geffen's policy. Frances is president of Santa Bar ...

Big cities don't work in California, unless they despoil distant land to survive. What has caused the drought in California has been the rise of the Silicon Valley, its mowing down of all the magnificent orchards of the former "Santa Clara Valley," to be replaced by hot black pavement and software companies; and its octopus-like spread outward North, South and East to built more paved bedroom communities, as far South as King City, as far East as Manteca and Tracey, and as far North as Sonoma, where they are still cutting down ancient endangered redwood trees to build lines for commuter trains. Now if we could just ban San Francisco from stealing water from the Hetch Hetchy valley, 180 miles away and a valley as deep and beautiful as Yosemite (until San Francisco dammed it). Anybody reminded of the movie "Chinatown?" Or L.A.'s destruction of the Owens Valley for their OWN water greed? More water in the atmosphere and in the soil and plants cools things down.

PLAN TO SPLIT CALIFORNIA INTO SIX STATES. A plan to divide California into six states is one step closer to a vote. Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tim Draper got the go-ahead this week to collect signatures for his "Six Californias" plan, according to the California Secretary of State's Office. Draper needs more than 807,000 signatures of registered voters by July 18 to get his proposal on the November ballot. With 38 million people, California is too big and diverse to properly represent all of its residents, according to Draper's plan. "You'd be creating one exceptionally wealthy state and others with dire poverty," Corey Cook, a political science professor at the University of San Francisco, said to The Huffington Post.

Rich Guy: We Should Get More Votes Than Poor SAN FRANCISCO - Tom Perkins, the Silicon Valley venture capitalist who compared the plight of the wealthiest Americans to Jews in Nazi Germany, offered up a provocative new idea on what the rich deserve: more votes in public elections for every dollar they pay in taxes. "If you pay a million dollars, you should get a million votes," Perkins, the retired co-founder of venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, told an audience at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club in comments that he later said were meant to be provocative. He also said that only taxpayers should have the right to vote. Last month, Perkins wrote a much-discussed letter-to-the-editor published in The Wall Street Journal that likened the Nazi party's war on Jews to what he called "the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the 'rich.'" He later apologized for the analogy, which included a reference to Kristallnacht, the 1938 attack on Jews in Nazi Germany and Austria. He ex ...

Record Year for Luxury Home Sales in the Bay Area If you thought the Bay Area's luxury housing market was on fire last year, you weren't mistaken. In fact, it turns out 2013 was a record-setting year for luxury home sales in our region, according to a new report out this week. DataQuick, the La Jolla-based Real Estate information services company, confirmed what agents and their clients suspected all along: There were more luxury sales in the Bay Area last year than in any other year since the firm began keeping records dating back more than 25 years. Alameda County had a 70 percent surge in sales over $1 million, followed by Contra Costa County with a 63 percent spike, according to countywide data reported in the San Jose Mercury News. San Mateo, San Francisco and Santa Clara weren't far behind with increases of 39 percent, 34 percent and 29 percent, respectively. The DataQuick numbers are based on new and existing sales, both single-family and multiple-family dwellings, such as condos and townhouses. Al ...

Pending Patent Legislation Stifles The Next Steve Jobs REP. Dana Rohrabacher Steve Jobs started Apple in his garage in Silicon Valley. Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in an apartment garage outside Seattle. Stanford students Sergey Brin and Larry Page got Google off the ground in a garage they rented south of San Francisco. But a Senate bill supported by these companies and a handful of other deep-pocketed multinational corporations threatens to close the garage doors of small inventors forever. If enacted, it will stifle American innovation and destroy untold numbers of future jobs. I am speaking of S.1720, the so-called “Patent Transparency and Improvements Act of 2013.” Its backers claim it will reduce frivolous patent lawsuits. In reality, it was designed to rid big high-tech companies of what they fear the most: little guys with great ideas. When an American invents something useful, the only way he or she can protect that discovery and profit from it is to apply for a patent from the U.S. Patent and T ...

IT giants to pay to use San Francisco bus stops SAN FRANCISCO: Google Inc and other big technology companies that rely on private commuter buses to ferry workers around will now pay the city of San Francisco fees to use city bus stops, the city announced at a news conference. Companies using commuter buses, which some see as a symbol of unwelcome gentrification in San Francisco, will end up paying the city around $1.5 million over the next 18 months as part of a pilot programme, Mayor Ed Lee said. The programme will institute a permit system for the private commuter buses, which carry an estimated 45,000 workers daily between their homes in San Francisco and dozens of technology companies based in Silicon Valley, south of the city. The commuter buses will be limited to 200 specific public bus stops, out of 2,500 in the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency system, the city said. The vehicles will have to operate under guidelines such as yielding to Muni buses, pulling to the front of the bus zone ...

Just looking at the volume of job listings that piled up in my in box over the holidays (and even calls from recruiters during the holidays!), the insane price increases and overbids in Silicon Valley Real Estate, the stratospheric San Francisco rents, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer on the cover of Vogue in a red evening gown, the abundance of new restaurants, the redevelopment of once shabby Market Street and the reappearance of lavish free parties, and I'd say there's a second coming of the dot com boom happening, right now. Deja vu. This new wave is created by social media-driven sharing apps like Lyft, Uber, AirBnB, wearable computing, big data, cloud apps and social gaming. It's design-driven, rather than technology-driven. I have no idea if this wave is going to last 5 minutes or 5 months or 5 years, but no matter what your business is -- it's a good idea to jump on this boogie board and ride it as long as the exuberance lasts.

More by Martyn Williams Police in San Francisco have arrested a 16-year old resident of the city on suspicion of murder and attempted robbery after a cellphone theft apparently went wrong earlier this month.

Silicon Valley's invasion of San Francisco: Not quite the Ayn Rand nightmare portrayed in the tech press.
I'm still thinking over Allison Arieff's critique of the "tech sector's" approach to urbanism, as seen through the prism of development in San Francisco. Tim McCormack's response to it: any number of things that are worth engaging with in there, but Arieff's lede gave me pause: when she wrote that the tech sector is "embracing the language of urban planning — town hall, public square, civic hackathons," I did a bit of a double take. I've never heard any urban planner talk about civic hackathons as a component of their work. In fact, as far as I can tell, the civic hackathon is a concept that has only emerged in the past few years, combining the format of an event that has long existed at MIT, Stanford and Silicon Valley with a focus on governmental or societal systems of processes. Events where civic activists, open government advocates, journalists, and officials meet to discuss the needs of city residents and ways to use technology to improve upon those conditions -- and then start trying to do so, th ...
Opening of my 2000 book about the ways Silicon Valley was ravaging San Francisco and wealth can destroy culture: San Francisco, Capital of the Twenty-First Century Saturday night a new bar called Fly opens on Divisadero Street and immediately becomes a mecca for white kids. Sunday evening the St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church a few blocks down the boulevard holds a benefit to help it relocate from its home of twenty-nine years. And this bar and this church aren't even in the San Francisco neighborhoods that are being most rapidly changed. What's happening on Divisadero Street in the Western Addition is just the spillover from the wild mutation of the Mission District, once a bastion of Latino culture and cheap housing, and of the formerly industrial South of Market district. They are becoming the global capital of the Internet economy. San Francisco has been for most of its 150-year existence both a refuge and an anomaly. Soon it will be neither. Gentrification is transforming the city by driving ...
Tom Ehrich posted the following. See his other postings at morningwalkmedia.com December 14, 2013 Yearnings and Bubbles By Tom Ehrich "Bubble living" might be delusional, but it expresses deep and serious yearnings. Take "champagne music" maker Lawrence Welk, for example. His 1951-1971 music variety show on ABC was built on perpetuating the squareness of a pre-war world being challenged by change. My father was still watching Welk reruns forty Years Later. They reminded him of a world long supplanted. I wonder how many of our Tea Party patriots are the "Welk set," hankering for yesterday. Megyn Kelly, of Fox News, got thoroughly trounced for her inane on-air dream of a "white Christmas" -- Santa is white, Jesus was white, she insisted. But she also spoke for many who yearn for a more settled era when times were good inside the bubble of white privilege, if not so good outside it.

3 Best Cities for Sellers Are In Northern California We're coming upon mid-December and knee deep in the holiday season. In many markets across the U.S., the past two years have been much better for sellers without a doubt. But this holiday season, sellers in our neck of the woods in Northern California sit in an incredibly fortunate place. A recent analysis of markets nationwide showed that the three best cities to sell your home right now are all in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. A local Real Estate and information company analyzed the 100 most populated cities in the country and highlighted Fremont, San Jose and San Francisco as the top three markets for home sellers. They based their analysis on much more than list price alone, looking at the number of homes on the market, average time it took to sell, crime rates, school quality, unemployment rates and median household incomes. With this mix of variables in mind, Fremont came out on top. The East Bay city has a median listing price of $640,000, wit ...

Alibaba led a recent investment round for ShopRunner that raised US$200 million. Earlier in the year, the company also funded Quixey, a search engine for mobile apps, and Fanatics, a retailer of licensed sports merchandise.

The part of Silicon Valley that can't happen online In Silicon Valley, it feels like everybody’s always “meeting.” They’re "meeting" investors for coffee, or having a “walking meeting.” Steve Jobs was famous for those. And everyday, there are talks, conferences and private parties, where techies go to meet. I went to one of those meetings recently. It was a dinner given by some of the partners at Google Ventures, which is the search giant's venture capital fund. The fund invests in start-ups. And investors are serious "meeters." The event was at Foreign Cinema, in San Francisco's hip Mission District. When I arrived, the hostess took me upstairs to a private room, where the cocktails were flowing. The event was star-studded, in a geeky sort of way. Kevin Rose from Digg was there. So was Rich Miner, the co-creator of Android. Both of them work for Google Ventures. Miner told me he'd been on the meeting merry go round since 5 a.m. “Today, I think I had about 10 meetings,” Miner said. ...

Mouse inventor Douglas Engelbart has died - The computer scientist demonstrated many of the concepts of modern personal computing in 1968: Douglas Engelbart, a Silicon Valley engineer who invented the computer mouse and is credited with many of the concepts that underpin modern computing and the Internet, died on today at his home in Atherton, California. He was 88. Born in 1925, Engelbart was coming of age as World War II raged in Europe. He joined the U.S. Navy as an electronic and radar technician, and after the war studied electrical engineering at Oregon State University. He went on to complete a master's degree and Ph.D. at the University of California at Berkeley, where he was also an assistant professor. About a year later, in 1957, he joined the Stanford Research Institute (today called SRI International), which was just over a decade old. From 1959 until 1977 he led the organization's Augmentation Research Center, and in 1963 came up with the concept of the computer mouse. The mouse would go on ...
Who will stop Google? This piece originally appeared on TomDispatch. Finally, journalists have started criticizing in earnest the leviathans of Silicon Valley, notably Google, now the world’s third-largest company in market value. The new round of discussion began even before the revelations that the tech giants were routinely sharing our data with the National Security Agency, or maybe merging with it. Simultaneously another set of journalists, apparently unaware that the weather has changed, is still sneering at San Francisco, my hometown, for not lying down and loving Silicon Valley’s looming presence. The criticism of Silicon Valley is long overdue and some of the critiques are both thoughtful and scathing. The New Yorker, for example, has explored how start-ups are undermining the purpose of education at Stanford University, addressed the Valley’s messianic delusions and political meddling, and considered Apple’s massive tax avoidance. The New York Times recently published an opinion piece th ...

Silicon Valley is so unique because: 1. It is the largest R&D and innovation network in the world with an unparalleled concentration of research universities, government research centers, business innovation centers and collaborative R&D centers (with business, academia and the government). 2. It is the world's largest venture capital and angel funding network. 3. It has an entrepreneurial culture, in which risk – and failure – are accepted. What makes Silicon Valley so special is the culture of sharing ideas and also the input and participation of people from all over the world.

San Jose (/ˌsæn *** ˈzeɪ/; Spanish: St. Joseph) is the third-largest city in California, the tenth-largest in the United States,[5] and the county seat of Santa Clara County. San Jose is the largest city within Silicon Valley, which is a major component of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It is the largest city in Northern California. San Jose was founded on November 29, 1777, as El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe, the first civilian town in the Spanish colony of Nueva California.[6] The city served as a farming community to support Spanish military installations at San Francisco and Monterey. When California gained statehood in 1850, San Jose served as its first capital.[
11:00 AM - May 30, 2013 No, it’s not another housing bubble Hysteria in pockets of the press over a long-awaited recovery By Ryan Chittum The top story in all the major papers on Wednesday was news that home prices jumped 11 percent in the first quarter from a year ago, further confirmation that the housing recovery is underway in earnest. The double-digit home-price increases and return of bidding wars have led to an awful lot of “bubble” talk lately. Gawker declared yesterday that “The Next Housing Bubble Is About To Pop All Over You.” Gawker doesn’t quite grasp that soaring prices in Silicon Valley and San Francisco are being driven by a flood of newly minted tech millionaires chasing after a constrained supply of higher-end homes, and that’s not a bubble. Bay Area transactions are still 16 percent below average levels over the last 25 years and half the level seen at the peak in the mid-2000s. Prices would have to skyrocket, as we’ll see below, to get back to peak levels. Yahoo Finance ...

I'm happy about the Super Bowl coming to Bay Area, but I'm bitter about it not being in San Francisco.

But soon, you may be able to gamble on your smartphone. Thanks to improvements in technology, a change in federal rules and shifting political calculations, a push to legalize online and mobile gambling is picking up steam. Three states already have moved to allow it, and Silicon Valley tech companies, including San Francisco-based social gaming giant Zynga, are rushing to cash in. "It's inevitable that this spreads pretty quickly," said Doug Walker, who studies casino gambling as a professor of economics at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. Last month, the governors of New Jersey and Nevada signed laws to legalize online gambling in their states. And earlier this year, Delaware, which legalized online gambling ...

Today Gerald's friend Isabella took us out to Silicon Valley. Our first stop is the Stanford University. The Leland Stanford Junior University, commonly referred to as Stanford University or Stanford, is an American private research university located in Stanford on an 8,180-acre campus near Palo Alto. It is situated in the northwestern Silicon Valley, approximately 32 km northwest of San Jose and 60 km southeast of San Francisco. Stanford is considered to be one of the most prestigious universities in the United States and the world.

$100 Million Hillsborough Estate Hits the Market But With An Eccentric Twist The San Francisco area is known for many great things: the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and Ghiradelli Chocolate, but if you’re in the market for a luxury home with Tuscan-style architecture and a few acres, generally your search will come up empty. This is of course unless you head half-way between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley to the rustic town of Hillsborough. via JustLuxe.com
In his State of the City address last week, Mayor Ed Lee cheerfully characterized San Francisco as "the new gravitational center of Silicon Valley." He touted tech-sector job creation.

Roger James Hamilton wrote: What do you do if you’re not happy with your country? Start your own! These guys are - 12 miles off the coast of San Francisco... Peter Thiel, one of the billionaire founders of PayPal, has just helped to fund Blueseed, a floating city in international waters, 12 miles off San Francisco. The community will be home to high tech start-ups where every citizen need not pay tax, needs no work visa, and can run a global business from the high seas - while connecting to the brains and connections of Silicon Valley. The ship, effectively, is under the rules of no nation, and can set its own rules of how everyone lives, works, plays and pays. This has been 4 years in the making. In 2008, Peter invested $500,000 in the Seasteading Institute, to begin paving the way for floating sovereign nations in international waters. The Institute, set up by Patrick Friedman (the son of famous economist Milton Friedman) has set the mission of enabling “the next generation of pioneers to peacefully ...

Your Bi-Weekly Bay Area Real Estate market update. There’s no doubt in my mind that the tide has turned. Just recently, the National Association of Realtors reported that October home sales in the U.S. were 11% higher than a year ago. This marked the seventh straight month that the nation’s housing market saw improvement year-over-year, the first time that’s happened since November 2005-May 2006. One thing I’ll explain about the U.S. housing market is that it’s a very local issue; prices and the strength of the market vary tremendously from state to state and city to city. While some cities in the U.S. suffered extremely sharp downturns in prices and sales – Las Vegas, San Diego and much of Florida come to mind – other areas were not really impacted as much. San Francisco and Silicon Valley, for example, never saw prices drop as sharply as most of the nation. And both regions have rebounded sharply in sales and prices with the biggest challenge being not enough homes for sale to meet buyer . ...
How American Chinese Food Came To Be If you visit any of today's modern Chinese American communities, such as the San Gabriel Valley outside of Los Angeles, Flushing in New York, or numerous areas around San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and even Houston, you will find an interesting array of wonderful and delicious Chinese food. Yet when you compare that to what most 20th century Americans believed to be Chinese food, (and what still passes as Chinese food in many parts of the country to this day), there's absolutely no comparison. So what happened? Of course, this is a complicated question with many factors at play. But the leading cause is the little known history of the immigration patterns from China to the United States. The Chinese first came to the United States during the Gold Rush, went on to build the railroads, then developed the agricultural industry. But few people realize that virtually all these Chinese came from one small part of China: the rural districts of Toishan outside of the city f ...

Think Nerds Have No Game? Some Reasons Nerds Make Great Partners. San Francisco Examiner When you think about Silicon Valley usually one of two visions come to mind; 1) money and 2) nerds. Some may ever argue that nerds and geeks are the ones responsible for putting Silicon Valley on the map as a technological "hot spot", and there is even a book aptly named Geek Silicon Valley: The Inside Guide to Palo Alto, Stanford, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, San Jose, San Francisco. Many people use the words geek and nerd interchangeably, but there is usually one major distinction between the two. According to Carrie Tucker, author of I Love Geeks, a "nerd" is often a term given to someone who is highly intellectual and knows a lot of diverse information, whereas a "geek" is sometimes known to focus in on a single obsession and then study it in minute detail. Sure, geeks & nerds might not have the best game in town, but they don't necessarily need it either. Here are a few reasons that gee ...

This morning on another long run reminds me of my hometown Cupertino, nestled on the Santa Cruz foothills in Silicon Valley, near San Francisco, California where the fog rolls in on any summer afternoon settling in whatever community it wants to lay it's cool comfortable blanket upon. Today I ran in a fog so dense it was filled with wonderful memories of running through the Santa Cruz Mountains or surfing in the awesome waves of Half Moon Bay and all that right here at home in Canton, Illinois. To make my run even better was running into Kathy McDowell and her lovely dog Kona, who was having the time of her life in probably her first experience in fog barking at the squirrels frolicking in the fog shrouded trees. Coming soon the wedding of the century, Casie Markum and Ian McDowell, the son of Kathy and Kent McDowell. We are so excited!

Some info from the web - GoPro unveiled its latest, impossibly small, impossibly precise, impossibly cool camera on Tuesday evening in San Francisco. The GoPro Hero 3 gets smaller by 30%, faster by a factor of two, and shoots 4K video at 15 frames per second. That’s cinema quality in the “black” package for $400. Add built-in WiFi leveraging a GoPro app for your iPhone (Android coming soon), and you can also live-stream your images or video. Full disclosure: I have been rooting for GoPro since founder Nick Woodman almost rode me off a poison oak-filled cliff along the Northern California coast years ago. It’s a Silicon Valley company that has been built on passion, with Woodman leading the charge, and it shows. GoPro Hero 3 WiFi remote. I’ll let the real WIRED gadget hounds take it through its paces, but it’s insane how much is being packed into such a small package, and how far GoPro as a company has come. Consider that after the big camera companies ignored the opportunity, this formerly tin ...

Google can't enforce German Microsoft injunction: US court Updated: September 29, 2012 11:39 IST San Francisco: A US appeals court on Friday ruled that Google Inc's Motorola Mobility unit cannot enforce a patent injunction that it obtained against Microsoft Corp in Germany, diminishing Google's leverage in the ongoing smartphone patent wars. The injunction would have barred Microsoft from "offering, marketing, using or importing or possessing" in Germany some products including the Xbox 360 and certain Windows software. The ruling against the German injunction came from the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. Microsoft deputy General Counsel David Howard said the company was pleased with the ruling. A representative for Google's Motorola unit declined to comment. Brian Love, a professor at Santa Clara Law school in Silicon Valley, said the decision helps Microsoft counteract a favorable dynamic for Google in Germany. "To some extent Germany has a reputation as place you can go and get an inj ...
I like to think our neighborhood has a lot to do with making SF the number 1 city to live in the US!!! In its annual “America’s Best 50 Cities” roundup, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked San Francisco as the No. 1 Best City.

Major professional league and minor league teams, as well as U.S.-based teams belonging to international leagues in each city.” “The City by the Bay, this year's winner, provides residents with the best blend of entertainment, education, safety, clear air, and a prosperous economic base. As the heart of the Bay Area, San Francisco draws on the prosperity of Silicon Valley and possesses its own diverse history well represented at cultural center ...

Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about “two fundamentally different visions” for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternat...e vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous – an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans. When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale.
