  • Will the public find any real dirt on Whitman? So far, that's a no.
Monday morning's Chron had a story about how a labor union-funded independent campaign has outsourced opposition research to the public in its creation of WikiMeg.com -- a "place to discover and share information about billionaire CA Governor candidate Meg Whitman."

We checked it out just recently to see what juicy investigatory nuggets the effort has turned up. Behold, the initial comment in the most substantial (and only) anti-Whitman thread thus far:

I had been an ebay-er for many many years until 2008, when I had been

contacted by ebay to divulge personal information which had never been

required before. My ebay account was frozen, along with a sum of money

due to me, which ebay refused me access to until I provided them with my

personal information. This new procedure seemed to be a result of an

in-house policy change. 2 years later, ebay has canceled my account and

taken the money in it.

When I heard Meg was running to govern my state, I thought to myself--

"NO WAY!!! She stole my money through ebay, and I'm not going to let her

do it as Governer of the state I was born and raised in!"

OMG! Whitman was probably behind that policy change! She probably stole your $5 or whatever! Then she may have used it to buy porn, which she loves

Additionally, two threads sprung up praising Whitman for using her own

money and scaring unions. Keep up the good investigating, guys!

  • 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.'"
