Politics shouldn't be this scary.

Do you think that a 21st century city like San Francisco needs to do a better job incorporating open data into public transportation? Luckily, the smart people at Kicker Studios do, too.

According to Scientific American, the design company has recently been working on a SMS interface that uses a number of data sets that have been available – and under utilized – for years. This interface is a work-in-progress, designed with the goal of using all this open data to improve on NextBus – a system that tells you when San Francisco busses and other forms of public transportation are coming. The data being put to use by Kicker Studios covers bus routes, incident reports, fastest routes, safest routes and parking information – ultimately, to make MUNI better. Read More

The Washington Post recently reported India’s efforts to deliver modern technology to the masses – at an extremely cheap price – has finally been realized with the release of the Aakash tablet.

The Aakash – which translates to “sky” in Hindi – has a 7-inch touch screen, can play HD videos smoothly and can access Wi-Fi. While its technological abilities are rather standard these days – the price is anything but. The Aakash is currently being sold at $45 U.S. dollars (2250 Indian rupees) to the general public of India. Thanks to government subsidies, the price drops to $35 (1750 rupees) for students and teachers. Read More


Today a new video featuring Bay Area 1%, came out in support of Mayor Ed Lee.

The video is set to a remix of MC Hammer’s song "2 Legit 2 Quit" with Hammer himself, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, Google’s Marissa Mayer and Giants Closer Brian Wilson. All are endorsing mayoral candidate Ed Lee. It’s a great video showing how billionaires get down. Read More
