Google’s latest media hit involves a private ferry that transports employees from SFB to Redwood City (The Verge); this comes just weeks after demonstrators smashed the window of a G-bus to protest the area’s gentrification (The Verge); did some digging, SF Mayor Lee intends on charging tech co’s $100k/year to use MUNI bus stops; still doesn’t really address the gentrification… (TechCrunch);

A quick Google search for “tech gentrification” yielded ~ 400k hits (900 news articles generated in the past few months re: Google, Apple buses, Twitter moving into downtown SF); came across this great piece “2013: The Year we stopped trusting technology” – good call for action/reminder that actions have consequences and impact (Salon);
