Good Morning Mission!

It is 6 a.m., 55° and headed to 64°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Dolores Park Works has called a special meeting for Wednesday at 6 p.m. Subject? Trash.

La Cocina has an online auction going today. 

The SF Business Times reports that the Flax store at the edge of the Mission could get axed for housing. 

And, good piece in Valley Wag on tech reporting, tech-start-ups, stock offers and press releases.  I thought tech companies were supposed to be smart, but offering tech reporters “friends and family” stock? Dumb.

    Flax is a cute store. My kids love it.

    But it is a criminal waste of air rights.

    “John F. Kennedy said change is the law of life. I am a big advocate of change. It’s an opportunity to turn an entity into something different and something better.”

    A quote from the owner of Flax: http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Flax-art-store-draws-notice-to-move-condos-5464579.php

      Either we do what the developers say or we oppose all change anywhere all of the time.

        Yes, because compromise is a dirty word.

          Compromise and capitulation are two different words.

          • marcos

            Compromise means splitting the difference. The nonprofits capitulate for minute crumbs.

            Unless you have personally conducted an attempt at extorting a developer, it seems unlikely that you will have developed the nuanced sensitivity that is required to understand how far is too far.

            Given that the city needs investment more than the investors need this city, any such negotiations are not conducted from a position of strength.

            I believe that you massively over-estimate the amount of extortion that is available before people far smarter and richer than you walk away.
