It’s not every day that we get to look at someone’s birthday presents, but this one came up in a Google alert on the Mission. The blogger’s husband commissioned a work from Sirron Norris.

Other gifts? Artist Rio Yañez has a new 3D camera.

Food stuff: Tim at Weird Fish, what are you doing to vegans? Taking off the seitan dish (again), reports Grub Street.

Founder/Executive Editor. I’ve been a Mission resident since 1998 and a professor emeritus at Berkeley’s J-school since 2019 when I retired. I got my start in newspapers at the Albuquerque Tribune in the city where I was born and raised. Like many local news outlets, The Tribune no longer exists. I left daily newspapers after working at The New York Times for the business, foreign and city desks. Lucky for all of us, it is still there.

As an old friend once pointed out, local has long been in my bones. My Master’s Project at Columbia, later published in New York Magazine, was on New York City’s experiment in community boards.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how you make that long-held interest in local news sustainable. The answer continues to elude me.
