The LA Fire Department and Web 2.0

My interview with LAFD Public Service Officer Brian Humphrey is live at LAist. Thanks, Brian for taking the time to geek out with me for a bit re: the LAFD’s cutting edge experiments and efforts in making full use of ubiquitous Internet connectivity to provide the ultimate in public service.

Read the interview here.

Also, congrats to Assignment Zero for having its first series of crowdsourced articles (on crowdsourcing) published in Wired.

I don’t know whether or not my interview with Newsvine CEO Mike Davidson will make it into Wired, but either way, it was a great experience writing and editing for the project and I look forward to collaborating again in the future!

Fourth of July ’07

An action-packed 4th kicked off with San Francisco Mime Troupe’s hilariously frustrating — and at times insulting and painful for any viewer — Making a Killing. The 90 minute, multi-act satire was a winning, only-in-SF type of show — the troupe (they weren’t silent mimes) backed by a very capable band.

The fun continued at a combination of parties / barbecues in Mission Dolores Park, followed by the live footage of Miguel on the Slip n Slide (see video below) and concluding with views of the fireworks from the Twin Peaks view point (again, see video).

More great slip n slide photos here.
