Update: Creator of glasshole-free.org Daen de Leon explains what's up with the new "glasshole" website. Read at the bottom of this story.
Earlier this week, we incited readers with the news that a popular pub in SOMA, The Willows, made it official: no Google Glass-wearing patrons were allowed inside.
At least as long as they were donning the wearable computers.
It appears, other bars are following suit. According to glasshole-free.org., there's plenty of local watering holes that prohibit Google Glass "or otherwise restrict audio & video recording on their premises."
Here's the updated list as of lunchtime:More »
If you thought the stand off between Google Glass and San Francisco's favorite watering holes was over, you thought wrong.
The Willows, the super chill gastropub in SOMA, has decided Google Glass-wearing techies are persona non grata at the bar as long as they're donning the wearable computers, according to this image snapped by Broke-Ass Stuart the other day.
We called The Willows to find out whether Google Glass is a real problem there, or if this is just a preemptive measure, considering the craziness that went down at Molotov's in the Lower Haight last week.More »
The gentrification debate could very well wind up in a San Francisco courtroom soon. This afternoon, a legion of San Francisco activists (housing, labor, gay rights, etc.) filed an appeal, attempting to challenge the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority's decision to charge tech buses a $1 per-stop fee..
Richard Drury, an attorney representing a group of activists, released a statement saying the appeal is based on "significant environmental impacts that the City has failed to analyze and mitigate," including the displacement of housing, low-income communities,and people of color as well as air quality concerns.
"The Commuter Shuttle Program is like the opposite of school busing. Rather than busing low-income children of color to neighborhoods with good schools, this program buses wealthy white adults into the mission where they displace low income residents of color," he says. "This is an environmental justice issue and an environmental impact under" the California Environmental Quality Act.More »
Much to the chagrin of San Francisco progressives, the western span of the Bay Bridge was officially rechristened the Willie L. Brown Jr. Bridge Tuesday in a ceremony held on Treasure Island.
But while politicos, including Gavin Newsom, flocked to Treasure Island to celebrate, a group of artists remained on this side of the Bay Bridge and did a little celebrating of their own, honoring their successful attempt at upstaging Willie Brown
Late Monday night, a group of unidentified artists installed a large sign at the Bay Bridge onramp at Fifth Street, commemorating Joshua A. Norton, not Willie L. Brown. Norton was a famed 19th Century San Francisco eccentric, known for his many, many proclamations, notably the one where he declared himself Emperor of the United States, and later tacked on "Protector of Mexico" to his title. In addition, Norton is best-known for his many decrees about bridges and tunnels that he had hoped to build, connecting San Francisco and Oakland.More »

His life is seriously disrupted and his fledgling two years of riding the wave of the technology boom appears over.
Former startup CEO Greg Gopman almost qualifies as a tragic figure -- except for the fact that the more you find out about him, the bigger an asshole you might think he is.
In addition to breaking voter registration rules (he would have committed fraud, too, had he bothered to vote), it appears Gopman -- whose Facebook rant last week hating on the homeless catapulted him to instant infamy -- at one time took advantage of a resource intended for the lower-classes: he lived for a time in city-subsidized affordable housing, according to records.
Yes, the Florida-born fraternity brother-turned-object of scorn is a colossal hypocrite.
That's not the problem. The problem is that there are many, many more people who think just like him.
