Handy city info for your address 2010

I was checking to confirm who my city supervisor is when I found this handy dandy service from the San Francisco government. Just type in your address (or a cross street) and you'll find out

  • Your parcel information (block & lot, zoning, lot area)
  • Elected officials with links to their home pages (Board of Supervisors, U.S. House of Representatives, State Senate, State Assembly, BART Board of Directors)
  • Street information with – woo hoo! – street sweeping info for both sides of your block
  • Nearest school and public library

Hooray for public information!

Recently enjoyed podcasts 2010

Since I no longer have a commute or do so much plane travel, I am not consuming podcasts at the same rate as I used to, but they are great while I do dishes or vacuum. I also use them to induce happy calm on bus rides with irritating fellow passengers.

Here's what's stuck out for me lately among my subscriptions.

Productivity:

"Goal Setting" from David Allen Company

Science:

"Olduvai Stone Chopping Tool" from the British Museum and BBC's brilliant 'A History of the World in 100 Objects' series. This stuff just gives me chills, even more so since I've actually stood at the lip of the gorge (on my 2005 trip to Africa). We all come from this heritage.

A bunch from 60 Second Science:
"Monkeys Hate Others' Bonuses, Too"
"Count On Steves to Defend Darwin"
"Earths Common as Dirt"
"Money Can Buy Happiness Sometimes"
"Waking in the Dark: Daylight Saving Time"
"Heart Keeps Pumping Out New Cells"
"Breathing Easy Thanks To Great Oxidation Event"
"Iron Will to Live for Antarctic Microbes"
"Monkey Drives Dinosaur Game Extinct"
"Elderly Who Forget Age Remember Better"
"Bad Mileage Driving Tips"
"Rain Zone Moving North"
"Profanity Bleeps Physical Pain"
"Cat Call Coerces Can Opening"
"What's Behind Birthers' Obama Belief"
"Hot Rocks Were Technology Revolution"
"Gene Therapy Cures Color-Blind Monkeys"
"Salty Origins for Early Earth Biomolecules"
"Teen Inventors Fight Tinnitus"
"Pill May Change Attraction"
"Wind Farmers Go to School on Fish"
"Black Hole Quasar Building Galaxy"
"Caffeine Merely Masks Alcohol's Effect"
"If Time Flew, You Had Fun"
"Lighter Drinks Avoid Heavy Head" (Or just try smaller, better drinks, mm?)
"Gunfight Tip: Faster to Draw Second"
"Ancient East Asian Found in Roman Empire"

Cocktails:

"Traveling Mixologists Rock Paris, episode II" from OhGo.sh


Happy listening!

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
