Muni Wants You ... for Online Advisory Panel

Muni's recruitment pitch for an online advisory panel begins with a straightforward question: "Do you live, work, attend school, or spend time in San Francisco?" 

The answers aren't all straightforward. There's "yes," "no," and "Don't know." 

Don't know? It's not clear how someone can not know the answer to that question. In any event, answering "don't know" or "no" gets you bounced from the survey. Those who answer "yes," however, may yet earn the right to "provide important feedback in customer surveys, participate in new programs, and become more involved in helping the SFMTA improve the City's transportation system."

For the purposes of this enterprise, let's assume you answer "yes." 

If so, you are then queried how often you use Muni, a bicycle, or a taxi (and not Uber, Lyft, or other app-based services). 

You are then quizzed on your zip code ("Don't Know" is, again, a potential answer), gender ("Don't know" isn't an answer here, but "other" is), age, and household income. 

You'll also need to know your own email address if you want to be a part of Muni's panel. But they don't ask for your name. 

"Your responses to all SFMTA surveys are confidential and provide us with valuable insight into how we can improve your transportation experience."

That sounds like a challenge

  • 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.'"
