This is the best thing the city has done in a while.
Above, the San Francisco Chronicle printed a special edition of their paper in honor of Bat Kid, with articles written by none other than Lois Lane and Clark Kent.
Again, best sense of civic pride anywhere.
Salsa dancers: the latest occupation to find itself unexpectedly displaced by robotics.
This could be good. Also, how did they film a walkby of Multikult without me noticing?
Cisco had a crappy quarter after Brazil and Russia started pulling orders; expect a lot more of the same from similar companies (IBM, HP, Oracle, and especially network equipment companies like Juniper). This has the potential to be a gigantic shot in the foot for the American economy.
Now this is what I call a motherfucking cover.

Awww, jumpcut.com. An ignominious end. (Also: the first thing that came to mind for crackers.com was snack food?)
When you’re a company that’s been around as long as Yahoo, there are lots of fun things that you stumble across. This year, we found a huge list of domain names that the company has owned for quite some time.
As we discussed what to do with them, it became obvious that it was time to set them free…back into the wild of the Internet. Surely, creative people, businesses and entrepreneurs could come up with something great to do with them. They could even spark some brand new ideas or companies.
Tomorrow, we’re starting a week-long auction that includes well over a hundred premium domain names. How premium you ask? How about sandwich.com? That’s a pretty awesome name, and now it’s back on the market!
Get ready to bid on your favorites, here’s a partial look at the treasure you’ll find:
- Crackers.com (Snack-rating site?)
- AV.com (Reminds me of high school)
- Jockeys.com (A social network for people who ride horses?)
- Sled.com (Winter is coming)
- Blogsport.com (Could be great if blogging ever became an Olympic sport!)
Go here to find the list. The Domainapalooza starts on the 14th and goes through the 21st, and we’ll be adding more domain names during the week.
