Get ready for World Cup!
The world’s biggest soccer tournament, the FIFA 2014 World Cup, will be held in Brazil this year. Ticket sales are off the charts! For many of us who are not lucky enough to get tickets or be able to travel to Brazil to watch the matches live, we can still follow the tournament on TV or [...]

Story
Tagline
Bringing power to the people through technology
Introduction
My name is Michael Geer. Go by MG. I am a tech junkie and believer, who is currently building technology that fights internet censorship globally at AnchorFree as COO. We have over 200 million downloads worldwide and growing...

I moved my home base from the US to Moscow in 2003, Moscow to London in 2007, London to NYC in 2010, NYC to Moscow again in 2013, and now Moscow to SF. Through some of those moves, I helped create and was an executive of various titles at Badoo in London and Moscow. During my time (ending in 2010) we brought Badoo from less than an idea to a global over 70 million member - $100 million annual business.

My passion is exploring ways of using technology to enhance and improve our real everyday lives, and more specifically to decentralize more power to individuals.

Future plans include helping transform global philanthro-capitalist methods (social good with for-profit companies) with my company, NyMos.
Bragging rights
One of the few internet entrepreneurs on earth that has ever gained 100 million registered users for a project.

UPDATE: David the manager reached out to apologize and asked for the chance to prove they care and appreciate their customers. That is worth one more star. I will see how things go on my next visit and adjust my review accordingly. ======================================= Great croissants, mediocre espresso, but anti-customer policies from the owner (staff is nice) will push me to go to Red Rock and Dana Street from now on. Shame.

To be clear, the excellent rating above for "food" is actually for the coffee/espresso, which I can only describe as perfect. The world and my life need more places like this. Mike, the owner, has on a couple occasions made the day of my friends/family by taking the time to discuss all the beans with them. You will enjoy this place.

Interesting menu, but can't rave about the food. Good solid brunch option.
