South Park – Shabby, chic, shabby, now chic again
InformationWeek leads with the story that South Park is again vibrant. South Park is the south of Market Street locale in San Francisco that was once considered a lucky address with companies like Wired, BigWords, and Organic Online, which all sprouted up along the park.

For the past few years however, as numerous tenants went bankrupt, South Park was more home to winos than to coffee-drinking coders. InformationWeek recalls a story where some pathetic wannabe broke into the South Park hq of the VC firm Hummer Winblad and posted his business plan in the men’s room.
