d0ntb33vil --- A new media art installation by local artist, Harris David Harris exploits a loophole in wireless networks at Google and Facebook bus stops in San Francisco.

Over the past two weeks, bus riders' devices automatically connected to Harris's routers while waiting for the bus. Instead of granting internet access, riders see a animated image of the sidewalk before them.

Flax art store draws notice to move; condos planned
Tuesday, 13 May 2014 08:10

SAN FRANCISCO --- For 37 years, the Flax art supply store has held its ground near the corner of Market and Valencia, a crossroads where the North Mission heads toward the eastern edge of the Castro district.

Now third-generation store owner Howard Flax is going to have to move. He's the fallout of a development plan to replace his store with a nine-story, 160-unit condo building.

"We were given plenty of notice by the developer. We are looking for a new space in San Francisco comparable to what we have. Given the real estate market, we might have to downsize a little bit," said Flax, who followed his father, Herman, and grandfather, Phillip, at the helm of the store, whose current home is known for its distinctive tilted-letter sign. ~continue reading
