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.
"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.
