I realized recently that I had neglected to post the good news here, that although I narrowly missed being elected delegate to the California Democratic Party, I managed to snag an appointment by representative Sandré Swanson.

We envision communities and workplaces where technology is a silent partner, boosting productivity, enhancing profitability, and enabling communication. There should be no internal barriers to the broad opportunities that are opened by the internet. Online strategies should be as straightforward to implement as sending an email. We envision that Tech Liminal can help achieve this new level of productivity and creativity by bringing business professionals, community leaders and technology experts together.
Marin Mommies was developed and launched by Pamela Fox in January, 2007. A stay-at-home mom of two small children, Pamela grew up in San Rafael, and currently lives in Novato. It is her hope that Marin Mommies will be a place for moms (and dads, too) to come together to learn, advise, discuss, and share tips and resources with other parents in Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area—and anywhere else, for that matter. Much of the content in Marin Mommies is specific to the Bay Area and Marin County, but much will be of interest to parents everywhere!

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.
Pim grew up in Bangkok, was shipped off to study in other places, and somehow found herself living and loving it in the San Francisco Bay Area. She quit her Silicon Valley job in 2005 to pursue a career in food: the writing, reporting, and basically anything interesting thereof that comes her way. Her recipes, writings, and photographs have since appeared in the New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, Bon Appétit magazine. She's also moonlighted as a judge on Iron Chef America.
Chez Pim chronicles her globetrotting adventures –and misadventures- in the world of all things edible, from vibrant street-side fares in Asia to the refined world of Three Michelin Star restaurants in Europe. Pim also cooks a mean pot of curry.

We hope that you will join us — and our friends — as we travel around the city and shed light on its many corners.
