Yesterday we celebrated 9 years of the Bayway bike commute route from San Francisco to the peninsula. We had 30+ show up and ride with us. I never could have guessed that long distance bike commuting on such a pieced-together route would be so popular. I can't wait for Bike to Work Day next month were we will have hundreds of people on this ride!

Thank you to all who have made Bayway and the other SF2G routes part of their commute.

Yet another reason not to fly United Airlines.
WASHINGTON (AP) — United Airlines stopped a prominent security researcher from boarding a California-bound flight late Saturday, following a social media post by the researcher days earlier suggesting the airline's onboard systems could be hacked. The researcher, Chris Roberts, attempted to board a United flight from Colorado to San Francisco to speak at a major security conference there this week, but was stopped by the airline's corporate secu...

"Roberts also told CNN he was able to connect to a box under his seat at least a dozen times to view data from the aircraft's engines, fuel and flight-management systems."

Absolutely would have him banned from any flights. He was doing penetration testing on planes in flight with people on board.

Each of these reviews were seminal events for me. I'm sad to see Siracusa retire from OS X.
Nearly 15 years ago, I wrote my first review of Mac OS X for a nascent “PC enthusiast's" website called Ars Technica. Nearly 15 years later, I wrote my last. Though Apple will presumably announce the next major version of OS X at WWDC this coming June, I won't be reviewing it for Ars Technica or ...

How many times can police officers lie in a single report? Gah. It's so sickening.
A white police officer in North Charleston, South Carolina, was charged with murder Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him fatally shooting an apparently unarmed black man in the back while he ran away.

Overdue but I'm glad this is finally happening.
SACRAMENTO — California imposed its first ever mandatory water cutbacks of 25 percent for residents and businesses after the state recorded its lowest snowpack ever amid the worsening drought. Brown issued an executive order directing the State Water Resources Control Board to make the water reductions mandatory, a move he had previously been reluctant to do when he had instead called on Californians to voluntarily cut back 20 percent. Brown’s ...

A lot of residential use is discretionary. Savings are still savings and they add up.

Commercial and agricultural uses also have lots of room to reduce usage. We should also be talking about that.
