A directory of bay area community sites and bloggers

Coastsider

Coastsider covers coastal San Mateo County, from Devil's Slide to the Santa Cruz County line. We're based in Montara, and focus principally on news in Montara, Moss Beach, El Granada, and Half Moon Bay. But we're also interested in Pescadero, La Honda, and the Southcoast. The subjects we're most interested in are community, planning and development, and the coastal environment.

SF Style

SFS is curated by Dyanna Dawson and John Tran. SFS is an acronym for 'street fashion style'. We use it as a practical abbreviation of our blog's official name: SFStyle. John Tran was born and raised in the Bay Area. He founded SFS in 2008 to utilize his talent and passion for art, fashion, and photography. He has worked with NBC Bay Area and 7x7 Magazine--and also contributed to Soma Magazine. His interests outside SFS include: perusing dusty bookstores, keeping freshwater aquariums, and consuming Indian cuisine. He has gone by the blogger nickname, 'JT Paradox' which also happens to be his eponymous photography blog.

A Better Oakland

I love this city. I know that Oakland has problems, but it also has an incredible amount of potential. I hope that we can become the “model city” that Mayor Dellums has promised. Unfortunately, we have a very long way to go, and many of our most politically active residents and elected officials seem to be more interested in feel-good nonsense than real solutions. In this space, I offer my personal commentary on our progress. I used to blog with dto510 at Future Oakland. You can read some of my older posts in the archives. I also cover local politics and development for the Oakbook.

Baseball Oakland

They fought their owner, and they fought each other. They wore their hair long, grew big mustaches and wore the loudest uniforms possible. Oh, yeah, they also were the greatest baseball dynasty since Casey Stengel's Yankees of the 1950s, winning the World Series in three consecutive years. We're talking, of course, about "The Mustache Gang" -- the nickname of the Oakland A's of the early 1970s. They were led by eccentric owner Charlie O. Finley and his smart, dutiful cousin Carl Finley, who ran the threadbare front office while doing the work of a dozen men. The team also featured future Hall of Famers, such as Catfish Hunter, Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson and manager Dick Williams, along with legendary pitcher Vida Blue (who should be in the Hall).

LivinintheLoin

livinintheloin is: a) a tree hugger b) an activist / volunteer in The Tenderloin c) a cartoon character d) car-free e) On the NOM/TCBD Board f) All of the above Basically, a regular guy that’s been in the area for about a decade, in SF for 6 years. Last summer, ‘07, I bought a condo in the Tenderloin — the American dream. From the perspective of a guy who had actually only been downtown a few times — the “dream” was initially more like a psycho-nightmare. Uh, what is that smell? Look at that, a guy using a car mirror to inject (I dunno) into his neck.

All Voices

allvoices is a global community that shares news, videos, images and opinions tied to news events and people. It is the first true people’s media. It's a place where individuals from all over the world can share what is happening where they are (location) at a particular point in time. allvoices then brings together multiple voices or points of view via news stories, videos, images and blogs from the Internet, to provide context and build momentum. The platform provides the community with the ability to search and navigate a news event by location and category, to share and to have a discussion around it, to emotionally connect with each other’s perspectives and complete the human story. allvoices is an open and highly relevant social media site "unedited by humans", where anyone can report and add their voice from anywhere.

Around Dublin

As proud new home owners who are excited about Dublin’s impressive achievements and vast potential, we started to read the Staff Reports, follow City Council meetings, and consult Dublin’s City Staff to learn more about the many exciting developments throughout this beautiful emerald city of Northern California. Once we realized that other residents would be interested in the information we have collected and digested, we started this website to share what we know, evaluate each project on its own and in the greater context of the city, and provide a forum for interested residents to contribute their perspectives.

Oakland Museum of California

The Oakland Museum of California is temporarily closed for the renovation and transformation. Join us in May 2010 for the grand reopening. The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) brings together collections of art, history and natural science under one roof to tell the extraordinary stories of California and its people. OMCA connects collections and programs across disciplines, advancing an integrated, multilayered understanding of this ever-evolving state. With more than 1.8 million objects, OMCA is a leading cultural institution of the Bay Area and a resource for the research and understanding of California's dynamic cultural and environmental heritage.
