A friend asked if I could name a few San Francisco-based bloggers. It was harder than I expected, though there are certainly a few. Here’s an off-the-top-of-my-head list of bloggers I know of, in and around San Francisco:
Valleywag (a flagrantly commercial effort to capitalize on a particular region, not a human being who happens to live in that region–but what the hell)
Anil Dash though he’s really just a New Yorker living temporarily in SF
Evan Williams, the founder of Blogger
Matt Mullenweg (WordPress founder)
John Battelle (in Sausalito now, but hell, that’s the Bay Area)
Kevin Kelly (Pacifica)
Scot Hacker (somewhere in the Mysterious East Bay)
Seems like bloggers everywhere else are banding together around geography, throwing dinner parties and forming mutual admiration societies. What’s up with SF? Other than a few lame “West Coast Blogger” coffee mugs, we got nothing. This from the town that practically invented blogging.
Am I missing something here? C’mon, all you West Coast bloggers, it’s time to represent!
