Oh, if only I made enough to afford a flat in the Inset!

As first noticed by Jim Herd over at SF Citizen, locals using Yahoo! Maps may find themselves doing a double-take -- right at the outset of their experience. For reasons yet unknown, the service has labeled the Inner Sunset "Inset" and Outer Sunset "Outset."


Our calls to Yahoo! have not yet been answered.

Since your humble narrator was born at U.C. San Francisco, does that mean he was in the Inset from the Outset?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
