South Park – The Scene of the Crime
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. During the boom, you could waste a whole lunch break standing in line behind throngs just to get a cup of joe at Cafe Centro. 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.
