We're out to radically redefine the concept of a Guidebook. We're shredding the old assumptions of the Frommer's and Fodor's of the world, and building a new, vibrant, living online guide that constantly changes to meet readers' needs.
We are the journal of a passionate love affair between a place, the people who live here and those who come from around the world to visit. Not every town can inspire passion. Sausalito can.
We created this interactive site to give voice to the ideas and opinions of our professors in a forum that encourages public comment. Our authors include more than 140 UC Berkeley professors and scholars who share their thoughts on topical national and global issues. As the nation searches for answers to a litany of burning questions and issues, the site serves as a virtual blackboard for the game-changing ideas pulsing around the Berkeley campus.

Streetsblog is a daily news source connecting people to information about sustainable transportation and livable communities.
Since 2006, Streetsblog has covered the movement to transform our cities by reducing dependence on private automobiles and improving conditions for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Our reporters have broken important stories about transit funding, pedestrian safety, and bicycle policy from day one. And our writing makes arcane topics like parking prices and induced traffic accessible to a broad audience.

I work at Bay Area News Group-East Bay’s Contra Costa Times, a 160,000-circulation newspaper that covers much of San Francisco’s East Bay. As the Times’ online coordinator, I offer best-practices advice on blogging and social media, moderate site forums, polls and reader-generated content; and create a daily “link and load” list of daily-buzz stories for budgeting awareness. I was born and raised in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and earned a bachelor’s in mass communications (concentration in newspaper journalism) from Bowie State University. My first newspaper job (not counting several years as a Washington Post paperboy in Silver Spring, Md., and a year or so as editor-in-chief of Bowie State University’s Spectrum student newspaper) was a Chips Quinn Scholar internship at the Oakland Tribune. That led to schools and general-assignment/nightcops reporting stints with the Tri-Valley Herald in Pleasanton and a stint on ANG Newspapers’ universal copy desk as an editor and paginator; later came online copy-editor shifts at thestandard.com and salon.com. I joined the Times in 2001 as a copy editor and paginator and then as the paper’s first morning online reporter.
I'm a Berkeley native but I have been living in Oakland for the past 10 years. This blog is devoted to informing the public and keeping those that are interested up to date on my lawsuit against the City over Measure Y. I am a lawyer and I have been representing myself in this action. I graduated from Boalt Hall School of Law (UC Berkeley) in 1992. In my day job, I represent public entities, including school districts and community college districts. However, the lawsuit I have filed has nothing to do with my job. I hate corrupt, lying and insincere politicians. I love my neighborhood and I believe Oakland has great potential. I also love fighting for things I believe in.
