Wikipedia Moving To SF: All Hail The Anti-Google

Posted By on Mon, Oct 15, 2007 at 1:55 PM


Let the information wars begin. Bemoaning the lack of tech talent in St. Petersburg Florida, and looking forward to "eating at more interesting restaurants," Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales announced last week that the nonprofit and anti-Google messiah will move its headquarters to San Francisco sometime this winter.

Trustees of the Foundation also considered moving to London, New York and Washington, but the supercharged magnetic technology black hole that is the Bay Area sucked them in at last. Hiring for the new San Francisco headquarters is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

  • 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.'"
