The satirical punk website The Hard Times is ready to make some noise as a podcast

Friends Matt Saincome and Bill Conway once ran a story on their satirical punk website The Hard Times that had the headline “Pretentious Friend Only Listens to Podcasts On Vinyl.” They should hope nobody is that pretentious or they may have to blow wads of cash on pressing and distributing vinyl records since they have a fledgling podcast network of their own now. And with a guest list that so far has included punk legends from bands including Minor Threat and Cro-Mags, this podcast is no joke. ...

Leadership At Top US Nonprofit Theatres Is Finally Becoming More Diverse

“Across the country, scores of artistic directors, most of them white men who have served as community tastemakers for years, are leaving their jobs via retirements, ousters, and an industrywide round of musical chairs. As their successors are appointed, a shift is underway: according to a national survey conducted by two Bay Area directors, women have been named to 41 percent of the 85 jobs filled since 2015, and people of color have been named to 26 percent.” – The New York Times

As Bay Area moves left, some conservative voters move out

Retired engineer Stewart Tagg spent four decades in the Bay Area — appreciating the blue skies, good schools and strong economy. But in recent years, his home changed too much for his liking: higher taxes, an open immigration policy and no end in sight to the state’s liberal direction.  Tagg, 69, sold his San Jose home and moved his family to Arizona in 2014. He used a simple calculation to justify it: 70 percent politics, 30 percent taxes. “I’m a good old Republican,” Tagg said. “I just saw the...

Vectordash’s cloud gaming service brings crypto-miners a new revenue stream

PC gaming has grown to be a pretty wide niche of people with some far-flung similarities and differences, one thing they all share are souped-up rigs that rely on beefy GPUs.

Populus raises $3.1 million to help cities make sense of shared scooters and bikes

Cities are seemingly down for this new era of transportation, which entails micromobility services and ride-hailing, and operators are increasingly more down to share their data with cities.

Populus, which just raised a $3.1 million seed round from Precursor Ventures, Relay Ventures and others, helps cities make sense of the influx of transportation data. This brin...

Bay Area gets more rain than Seattle

Seattle might be the US city most stereotypically associated with heavy amounts of rainfall, but this year, the San Francisco’s Bay Area is blowing it out of the water. According to Mike Nicco, ABC7 News meteorologist, “San Francisco, San Jose and Santa Rosa have each received more than 45 days of rain so far this year. Seattle has received 39 days of rain. Portland has received 42.” While you might think the rain has dampened the spirit of San Franciscans, that’s actually not entirely true. ...

SF/Bay Area source for coarse rye flour Submitted by mikewasinnyc on March 10, 2019 - 11:09pm. I've been baking a Russian rye using a recipe that I found online on a Russian sourdough site - basically trying to recreate the taste of a bread that I loved when living in Russia as a student in the early 90s.

California’s message: You built that, now get out!

The people who build our homes increasingly can no longer afford them. Even as the state elite and their academic cheering crew celebrate our progressive boom, even the most skilled, unionized construction workers, notes an upcoming study, cannot afford to live anywhere close to the state’s major job centers. In fact, notes the study, soon to be published by Chapman University, not a single unionized construction worker can afford a median-priced house in any of the major coastal counties, inclu...

Did Sam Altman make YC better or worse?

Two weeks ago, Musk separated from OpenAI, whose operations Musk and Altman have funde...
