In Oakland, A Sign of Some Very High Times — How bad is the commercial real estate crunch in San Francisco and Silicon Valley? So bad that that prices per square foot are roughly where they were around the first dot-com boom. So bad that Uber decided to go in, buy its own piece of land and build its own headquarters from scratch.

Hundreds Protest At San Francisco City Hall After Soccer Conflict With Dropbox, Airbnb Employees — A week after a video of an argument between a handful of local teenagers and Dropbox and Airbnb employees went viral, hundreds of demonstrators protested at San Francisco City Hall, asking for the city's parks to be freely open to the public.

Uber-For-Weed Startup Meadow Lights Up In San Francisco — You can really see where David Hua's food blogger cred shines with his new medical marijuana startup Meadow. In the app, there is just close-up after close-up of bud. That's because as a longtime medical marijuana user, he has an almost weed sommelier-like care and taste in finding quality product.

Swipe And The Silicon Valley Idea Machine — Three years ago, a few months after the Arab Spring demonstrations forced a collapse in the Egyptian government, twenty-year-old Marwan Roushdy spontaneously entered a Startup Weekend competition in Cairo and won. It was a mobile app that connected users to emergency hospitals in the immediate area, and it was called Inkezny, the phrase for "rescue me" in Arabic.

Snapchat and Spiegel’s Interesting Call on the Hong Kong Demonstrations — I don't mean to pile onto Snapchat in the middle of the #Snappening. But I thought there was something interesting that went missed in CEO Evan Spiegel's multi-generational chat with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg this week at the Vanity Fair Summit.

A Conversation on Future Urbanism, Tech Hubs — It was a really interesting selection of panelists with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman, former New York City director of planning Amanda Burden and Zappo's CEO Tony Hsieh, who has been struggling to revive downtown Las Vegas, at Vanity Fair's New Establishment summit yesterday in San Francisco.

San Francisco Legalizes, Regulates Airbnb With 7-4 Vote, Lots of Amendments — After six years of operating in San Francisco, Airbnb will finally become legal on its own home turf. The city's board of supervisors voted to legalize and regulate short-term stays through a controversial piece of legislation that has been two years in the making and comes in the midst of one of the city's most acute housing shortages in history.

It’s Decision Day For Airbnb in San Francisco — Today, San Francisco's board of supervisors is voting on how to legalize and regulate short-term rentals on platforms like Airbnb. It's a critical moment for Airbnb because some of its most attractive and lucrative markets are in the world's top-tier cities, many of which suffer from chronic housing shortages.

SureMote Turns Your Android Phone Into A Remote For Any Wi-Fi Connected Device At Home — I don't think I've used a remote control in a year. Perhaps several years. They're cheap. They get lost easily and sometimes you end up with ten of them. But an Israeli company called Tekoia is trying to consolidate those devices through an app called SureMote that links to Wifi-connected home appliances.

Lever Raises $10M From Matrix To Build An All-Encompassing Human Resources And Hiring Platform — There are plenty of old-school software platforms for hiring and talent management like Taleo, which is owned by Oracle. But a new startup called Lever, backed with $10 million from Matrix Partners, thinks that it might be time for a change.
