Exciting developments:

Sungevity and competitors such as SolarCity and Sunrun have become obsessed with making the decision to go solar as easy as possible for homeowners. A near-instantaneous quote certainly helps. In addition, the system will help chip away at the "soft costs" associated with solar installation. While the price of solar hardware has plunged in recent years, the costs of acquiring customers, designing systems and installing them haven't. Any company that can reduce those soft costs will have a competitive edge.

"It really shifts from being about hardware to being about software," said Sungevity CEO Andrew Birch. "We are hyper-focused on customer experience, and we think we have the software platform to deliver it."

I hope that both Lost Weekend and Adobe Books make it. Also, this is another reminder about how poorly served our neighborhood is served by restrictive liquor licenses rules. Thanks much to narrow special interests for advocating for them :(

This summer, stay in vacation mode a little longer and let Google+ do the work of showing off all the highlights from your amazing trip.
Google+ Stories automatically curates your best photos and videos from the places you visited and creates a chronological narrative for you to review, edit, and if you want to, share with anyone -- even those without Google accounts. http://goo.gl/xYr3Fc.

This is pretty fun: Tour de France winner Chris Froome has recently become the first person to bicycle from England to France, via the service tunnel of the Eurotunnel for trains. Marketing video can be found at the link below.
The Team Sky leader recently rode from the Eurotunnel Terminal in Folkestone, on England’s south-east coast, to Calais in France

To my knowledge, La Marseillaise is the only national anthem that goes out of its way to describe their country's accent as "manly". And yes, this includes anthems composed by Kahless The Unforgettable sung in the original Klingonese.

This article made me nostalgic for my parents' first visit to San Francisco.

Note: now that +Jean Lider and +Bruce Lider have visited so many times and so often, I'm not even sure I can remember their first visit. But it must have been good enough to make all those return visits! :)

The tours and tastings at this venue are amazing. Don't drive – arrange for a car or take public transit.

Easily the most dramatic architecture of any restaurant in the Mission, this place is a must-eat for locals and visitors. Brunch is perhaps even better than their dinner service.

This is my go-to dinner spot. It's my favorite pizza in the city, but even if you disagree with that, it's certainly in the top 5.
