Rebecca Solnit · Diary: Google Invades · LRB 7 February 2013
There are ways in which Silicon Valley is nothing like this: it’s clean, quiet work, and here to stay in one form or another. But there are ways in which technology is just another boom and the Bay Area is once again a boomtown, with transient populations, escalating housing costs, mass displacements and the casual erasure of what was here before. I think of it as frontierism, with all the frontier’s attitude and operational style, where people without a lot of attachments come and do things without a lot of concern for their impact, where money moves around pretty casually, and people are ground underfoot equally casually. Sometimes the Google Bus just seems like one face of Janus-headed capitalism; it contains the people too valuable even to use public transport or drive themselves. In the same spaces wander homeless people undeserving of private space, or the minimum comfort and security; right by the Google bus stop on Cesar Chavez Street immigrant men from Latin America stand waiting for employers in the building trade to scoop them up, or to be arrested and deported by the government. Both sides of the divide are bleak, and the middle way is hard to find.

Where You Should Move to Make the Most Money: America’s Superstar Cities - WSJ
A tech-driven concentration of talent since the 1980s has helped the rich get richer. But it has also sharpened an urban-rural divide that, some say, threatens growth.

The Secret History of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco – Foreign Policy
The dynamics and methods they employ will necessarily change, these officials said, but San Francisco and Silicon Valley are simply too target-rich, too valuable, and too soft for them to cease activities here. The spy war will endure; the Russians will, over time, rebuild their networks, adjusting their activities to account for their lack of local diplomatic cover. Ultimately, the circumstances surrounding the closure of the San Francisco consulate are just one piece in a much larger, and far more shadowy, antagonism between the two nuclear superpowers. “The great game is upon us again,” one former intelligence official said to me. “San Francisco has always been a focal point for Russian interests. The work won’t stop.”

SF supports immigrants — just not into our neighborhoods - San Francisco Chronicle
San Francisco is one of the most progressive cities in the nation, especially when it comes to national immigration. We believe so much in the natural right of people to join us here in America that we fought to keep our status as sanctuary city even in the face of being federally defunded for it. We pride ourselves on our rejection of plans to tighten immigration controls and deport undocumented immigrants. Yet take that same conversation to the local level and all bets are off. City meetings have become heated, divisive and prone to rhetoric where we openly discuss exactly which kinds of people we want to keep out of our city.

Uber self-driving plan defies California regulators
Uber is poised to start carrying passengers in self-driving cars in San Francisco despite lacking a permit to test autonomous vehicles in California, in the latest example of the company’s brash approach to regulation.

The move will heighten concerns about transparency and safety at a crucial time for driverless policy in the US, as carmakers and technology companies vie to dominate a technology that is seen as vital to the future of transportation.

Uber admits its self-driving cars have a problem with bike lanes - The Verge
Less than a week after self-driving Uber cars were spotted committing a range of traffic violations in San Francisco, the company has admitted that its autonomous vehicles also have a "problem" with the way they handle bike lanes. An Uber spokesperson told the Guardian that the company was working to fix a programming flaw that could see the cars making unsafe turns in the city's cycling lanes

Travels in Pornland | Andrea Stuart | Granta Magazine
Despite feminist porn’s influence on the media, art world and academia it has never been a financially viable undertaking; not least because women are not interested in buying porn in large quantities. The free products available on sites like Porn Hub are a disincentive, too, to pay for porn of any variety. And so the huge and thriving alternative porn product that the San Franciscans dreamt of generating simply has not come to pass. Piracy, too, which is rife online, has had a hand in undercutting the monetary stream that should fill the coffers of feminist pornographers. A sign of the industry’s stagnation is the fate of the Feminist Porn Award designed to recognize the talent of the sector – it has not been put on for a few years now. A number of notable feminist porn producers, too, who once aspired to make a living in this milieu, have moved on to other professions.

The great black feminist poet Audre Lorde once wrote that ‘the masters tools will never dismantle the master’s house’. But feminist porn director Shine Houston countered this by saying: ‘What I’ve learned in this business is that you absolutely can dismantle the master’s house using the master’s tools.’ Houston’s retort was made in the hopeful days of the San Franciscan feminist porn scene, when practitioners believed that they could establish a thriving feminist porn industry. But this has not proved to be the case. The master’s tools have not dismantled the master’s house. And the dominion of the mainstream porn industry is unassailed.

San Francisco Torn as Some See ‘Street Behavior’ Worsen - The New York Times
The city, known for a political tradition of empathy for the downtrodden, is now divided over whether to respond with more muscular law enforcement or stick to its forgiving attitudes.

The Chamber of Commerce and the tourist board are calling for harsher measures to improve what is euphemistically called the “condition of the streets,” a term that encompasses the intractable homeless problem, public intravenous drug use, the large population of mentally ill people on the streets and aggressive panhandling. The chamber recently released the results of an opinion poll that showed that homelessness and “street behavior” were the primary concerns of residents here.

The Tech Boom’s Second Cities - The New Yorker
The shift toward tech has brought people to Silicon Valley cities like San Francisco and San Jose, of course, as happened during previous tech booms, but tech executives and investors have been somewhat more cost-conscious this time around. That has meant opening offices and hiring tech workers in secondary cities outside of Silicon Valley. Austin and Seattle have been big beneficiaries of that movement, as have some smaller cities, like Salt Lake City. In 2013, when the small-business blog at the Times started a series on what it called “startup cities” outside of the then-obvious tech capitals, one of its first posts was a profile of Austin.

SF Vs LA: Different Strokes In Urban Development | Newgeography.com
How and why do places differ in their pace of economic development? Why do some flourish while others lag? These are among the most profound questions in economics and related fields. Are explanations found in geography, culture, institutions, or fortune?

In "The Rise and Fall of Urban Economies: Lessons from San Francisco and Los Angeles," Michael Storper, Thomas Kemeny, Naji P. Makarem and Taner Osman consider these questions for two great cities. Storper, Kemeny, Makarem and Osman (hereafter SKMO) direct their attention to the Los Angeles and San Francisco “extended metropolitan regions” — the Census Bureau’s Consolidated Statistical Areas (CSAs) — in the post-1970 years. SKMO claim to have a plausible story about LA/SF divergence, which they do a fine job of presenting in this clearly written and well documented volume.

Three Years in San Francisco » Mike Industries
If there’s one thing I regret most from my time at Twitter, it’s that I don’t feel I made enough impact in improving and codifying how teams work together. Clearly it’s a very tough problem, as many well-regarded companies are still finding out, but if I could wave a magic wand and increase my impact in one area, that would be it.

In Praise of Uber — Monday Note
Regarding the controversy over how Uber treats its drivers: The forums may light up with accusations of slavery, but while many Uber drivers’ circumstances are less-than-cushy, I don’t see how the life of a rent-to-drive cabbie is much better. Also, Uber has given some unemployed people a first job that they couldn’t get before. Even in countries, such as France, that have a more generous unemployment safety net, a number of young people prefer the challenge of driving for Uber to staying on unemployment rolls. I’ve ridden with some of them.

It’s been six months since I moved to San Francisco from London and it’s been wonderfully disorientating.

Here’s a round-up of the most important* lessons I’ve learned so far.

How San Francisco's Progressive Politics Led to Its Housing Affordability Crisis - CityLab
As the city got more and more expensive, progressive housing policy shifted gradually to a sad, rearguard movement to protect the people already here from being displaced. No longer would San Francisco even try to remain open as a refuge for immigrants and radicals from around the world. The San Francisco Left could never come to terms with its central contradiction of being against the creation of more “places” that would give new people the chance to live in the city. Once San Francisco was no longer open to freaks and dissidents, immigrants and refugees, because it was deemed to be “full,” it could no longer fulfill its progressive values, could no longer do anything for the people who weren’t already here.

Gentrification X: how an academic argument became the people's protest | Cities | The Guardian
As rich and poor people alike continue to flock to cities like London, Berlin and San Francisco, either for work or a better quality of life, the controversies will only intensify and multiply. Apologists for gentrification can continue to pretend a city is a force of nature, and displacement of poor people from their homes just ripples on the tide, but the rising popular sentiment against social cleansing is not merely a fabrication of leftwing activists, academics or journalists. The anger is real, and the determination to resist is growing.

San Francisco's Fog Over Growth - Bloomberg View
The past is not an option. Going forward we can become either a big city, or else a highly exclusive gated community for the rich. For homeowners this is an academic question, because as owners, nothing can make them move. For renters and all new entrants (your children) this question is over whether we live in the Bay Area or not. There are 2x as many people who want to live here than do live here. The current “character” of SF isn’t very useful to people who can’t live here.

Will The San Francisco Bay Area Dominate Digital Healthcare? - Forbes
A different outlook is not the whole reason for greater digital health deal activity in the Bay Area, of course. The Bay Area is a great ecosystem. It has unequalled density of talent and capital. Valuations are higher and hot companies seem to accelerate faster. The big Internet companies are mostly there, increasing opportunities for platforms, alliances, and acquisitions. And then there is the weather … However, one well-known healthcare investor tells me he avoids the Bay Area because the valuations are so frothy.

Bay Area problems — Benedict Evans
One can also look at Amazon in this light - like Sears Roebuck before it, Amazon lets anyone anywhere buy things that you could previously only get in a big city. But that is not at all the same as letting people shop the way you do in a big city. Buying is not shopping. The challenge is that most of America doesn't live in New York - so how can one take shopping, rather than buying, to the Bay Area?

The San Francisco Drug Economy
A once-ubiquitous club drug combining 100-200 milligrams of MDMA with “uppers” (amphetamine, caffeine, etc.), ecstasy has since been usurped in popularity by Molly, a pure MDMA equivalent. Likewise, OxyContin, an opiate that is released gradually over a 12-hour time period, has been upped by Roxicodone — essentially the same drug, except with a much shorter kick-in time.

Housing Affordability in China | Newgeography.com
Finally, there is credible housing affordability data from China. For years, analysts have produced "back of the envelope" anecdotal calculations that have been often as inconsistent as they have been wrong. The Economist has compiled an index of housing affordability in 40 cities, which uses an "average multiple" (average house price divided by average household income) (China Index of Housing Affordability). This is in contrast to the "median multiple," which is the median house price divided by the median household income (used in the Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey and other affordability indexes). The Demographia Survey rates affordability in 9 geographies, including Hong Kong (a special administrative region of China). The average multiple for a metropolitan market is generally similar to the median multiple.

The World's Most Influential Cities | Newgeography.com
In order to quantify cities’ global influence, we looked at eight factors: the amount of foreign direct investment they have attracted; the concentration of corporate headquarters; how many particular business niches they dominate; air connectivity (ease of travel to other global cities); strength of producer services; financial services; technology and media power; and racial diversity. (Click here for a more detailed description of our methodology.) We found those factors particularly important in identifying rising stars that, someday, might challenge the current hegemony of our two top-ranked global cities, London and New York.

Why Protected Bike Lanes Matter | San Francisco Bicycle Coalition
A new academic study of protected bicycle lanes (click for PDF) was released earlier this month – the first ever for the United States. This study, prepared for the National Institute for Transportation and Communities, examined eight different locations throughout the country, collecting extensive data and surveys. One of the eight locations was right here in San Francisco, on Fell and Oak Streets. Overall, the study showed that protected bicycle lanes are overwhelmingly safe by nearly eliminating all conflict between modes. There was also a strong growth in ridership, where protected bikeways inspired more new riders to get on their bikes with as much as a 171% increase.

Inside the human costs of San Francisco's tech revolution
I do not dismiss the value of hard work and good ideas or discredit the possibility of our favorite story, “rags-to-riches.” But I live in the building against whose walls a young boy sleeps, the walls that serve as a toilet for the man on the corner, and this is not a matter of merit. My soul is no more valuable, my body no more useful. In one sense, of course, the sleeping boy is not my brother but in another sense he is, or could be, and that’s the possibility that we, “the homed,” the billionaires and millionaires and builders of websites, might remember more often.
