Do you tweet?
Most the time I dont even know where my cell phone is so, go figure. It has been months that buddies have asked me (and a few recent emails) to get into the twit-mode. Is that what the cool kids are doing?
Here is me: @meligrosa

I Tweet, Therefore I Am
By Owen Thomas
‟Why do people Tweet? Even the company’s CEO,
Ev Williams | @ev can’t answer that question. Perhaps he

[Via Crosscurrents] AUDIO: The City’s new bike plan -an interview with Dave Snyder
Dave Snyder is the transportation director for SPUR – the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association – which has been involved with virtually every major planning decision in the city. He sat down with KALW’s Ben Trefny who asked him why the city needs a better bike network.
A couple of the girls and I went out to dinner last Wednesday. Afterward, K took us out to Nob Hill’s Minx (formerly Red Room) to show the local support for Jamie, representing ♥San Francisco in Bravo’s Top Chef.
It was a pretty fun night, Jamie won the scallop challenge which we got to see on one of Minx’s nice TV screens (their new look and energy is very nice and inviting, well done Minx!) I forgot to take a photo of my bike locked onto this robust tree outside, it was comedic.
It was a pleasure to have Jamie around, watching the show she is in! Her friends & a large group of peers cheered her on & had snacks and drinks 🙂 It is the first time I meet someone that has been in a TV show. She is adorable! I’ll be cheering, good luck Jamie!!!
