InBerkeley on Twitter

Thursday, June 11, 2009 by Dave Winer.

Latest news -- we were about to get a Charles Hotel, run by the same people who run the Charles in Cambridge -- a truly classy hotel (a great place to wait out a snow storm). At the same time I found out about it, I found it's been cancelled. Oy! It's almost too much to bear. Permalink to this paragraph

Lots of new posts on InBerkeley and now you can follow us on Twitter, and never miss an update. I'm having so much fun with this project.  Permalink to this paragraph

I just posted some pictures from my evening walk. Lately we've been showing newly vacant storefronts. In this walk I show two recently empty stores that have new businesses. One a new restaurant and the other new Internet cafe. Berkeley has plenty of both, but imho there's always room for more. Both are at the intersection of Cedar and Shattuck. Permalink to this paragraph

Also walked through the North Berkeley farmers market. Every Thursday, "all year round, rain or shine." Permalink to this paragraph

Everyone should start a hyperlocal site. It'll give you fresh eyes for: 1. Blogging and 2. The place you live. Permalink to this paragraph
