The Bay Citizen, Online Newspaper, Forgets to Renew Its Domain Name

Posted By on Fri, Feb 3, 2012 at 11:39 AM

We know merger talks over at the Bay Citizen have everyone on edge about the future of the online newspaper. But amid all this excitement about joining forces with the Center for Investigative reporting, the BC forgot to do the one thing that would surely help bolster its online presence: Renew its domain name.

Seriously.

  • 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.'"
