The Webby-Award Winning web-journalism startup, Mission Loc@l, has “hired” a “fashion writer” for this fall, according to a source. The only details that we have is that it a female student straight out of undergrad, which is apparently rare for Berkeley J-School. There was some speculation that this might have been a demographic hire, but we cannot confirm that at this time.
Our source adds: “The mission needs a fashion blogger like it needs a google map of bike stores“
There is a new neighborhood blog in town, this on hailing from the rough streets of the Tenderloin. Meet Tenderblog.
“Yeah, it’s dirty. It’s grungy. There are people shooting up/ defecating/ begging/ sleeping accross the sidewalk/ not showering in plain daylight. There are hookers out in the open. There are dealers on the corners.”
Hell yes. The Tenderloin is nothing but endless fodder for the chaos. I cannot wait to see how this blog develops.
