In celebration of the KC Streetcar coming online, probably my favorite transit app, appropriately called Transit App, now includes the ALL of Kansas City's public transit options, from streetcar to Max to Metro. Check it out and let us know if you have another preferred public transit app in the comments...

If you only read one Prince tribute today, I recommend making it Sara J. Benincasa's ode to the Purple One in Playboy.

Joe Reardon, the KCK Mayor who brought Google Fiber to the city under his watch, is interviewed in a new Economist documentary on startup communities.
Earlier this year Joe Reardon was interviewed by The Economist for a documentary “Crystal Balls: Startups and the Future of the App Economy” to help tell the story of Kansas City as a rising digital ecosystem in the world. The film, premiered this week at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, provides new insights and gives guidance on how to further integrate technology in governance, business and the economy. Joe did a wonderful job in representing our community as he always does!

Portal takedown rejection notice.

Appeal type: Portal Removal Request
Portal: Alien Mural
Location: 16203 Vanowen St, Van Nuys, CA

This portal, if it ever existed, certainly exists no longer. It's a sign supply store and if it did run some sort of Aliens/Toy Story-related promotion once upon a time, the "mural" (aka--advertisement) has long vanished. These photos are ones taken of the building in question today. No mural anywhere. And yes, I did submit it through the scanner and yes, I received a rejection notice for the takedown today. Please remove this portal. Thank you.

Good news: Kansas City startup Neighborly just raised $5.5 million in startup funds.
Bad news: It had to move to San Francisco to do it.

Portal: Alien Mural
Location: 16203 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA

Well, this is a little embarrassing. The photos I submitted as proof of a portal's nonexistence, along with a takedown request for said portal, were approved. So now the portal has 2 photos clearly showing the blank walls of a building where a mural once was. Other agents have submitted this portal as a bad one and one finally got a rejection notice: thus, this appeal for +NianticOps to remove what is pretty clearly an invalid, no longer extant, portal. Thank you! And I hope I posted this in the correct section this time. It's supposed to be in the section where you appeal a takedown that was rejected. Thanks again!
