Links of Interest for June 19, 2008 – Manners in the ‘Hood

Today’s Links of Interest feature two sites that found their way into my Inbox recently which I hadn’t seen before and both are quite interesting. (If you have a site or see something on the Series of Tubes that would make a good addition to Links of interest, please email me!)
Our first link is to the new blog MUNI Manners, which tackles the problems of daily MUNI interaction front and center, with an emphasis on courtesy and common sense solutions. We had a bit of discussion here last year with this issue but it is nice to see some Good Citizens create a forum for this subject all on its own. (Edgehogs, beware).
Our second link is to the blog In My Hood, but frankly, I’d rather call this a magazine online since the profiles of people and businesses in the Sunset are a bit more indepth than the shorter blog format. Grace, the author of the site, did a great interview with the owner of the Sunset Shoe Repair which I really liked. Each week has a new feature and is definitely worth putting in your RSS reader.
As always, you can read about all the sites we link to by clicking on the Links of Interest subject in the right hand column.
PS: I’m still looking for a new place, so my psuedo-contest to you, the Loyal Readers continues – if your tipoff to a rental in the Sunset leads to a successful transaction, you get a prize! A real prize too, not something boring, either.

    I’m looking forward to reading MUNI Manners, however like most things in life, the people that most need to read such things never will! Can we make a pamphlet and hand it out to miscreants?

    @TB: believe it or not someone did one that was a bit cheeky a few years ago:

    some of it bugged me a little bit, but the edgehog thing was right on.

    MUNI manners looks interesting.
    Hi, my name is Mike, and I am an edgehog. I hate being smashed against the window. I will let people sit in the window seat (I even try to wave them over and stand up to let them sit), but it bugs me to the point that i would rather stand than sit in the window seat on a crowded bus.
    Hopefully that doesn’t wipe out the other ways that I try to be courteous. I never sit in the front seats and I will help people get in or out, etc.

    I’m unimpressed by Muni Manners — the lady who writes it spammed my Youtube videos with links to her blog. That’s not what passes for manners where I’M from.
