What We Were Reading While We Should Have Been Working (exist) - 381

Scott Lucas | December 9, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

How Workers Commute to San Francisco: Small decrease in the number of people driving alone and a small increase in the number taking mass transit of bicycling. (We'd bet those are well within the sample's margin of error, though.) [Socket Site]

Berkeley Pastor on Michael Brown Death: “None of us grew up perfect. All of us had moments of rebellion and moments of maturation. How do we create space for young people of color to have that?” [Berkeleyside]

Mass Arrests After Berkeley Protests Block Freeway: More than 150 in police custody. [SFGate]

Uber Driver Charged With Manslaughter: In the death of 6-year old Sophia Liu. [Examiner]

High Line Architect Chosen for Presidio Design: Hope Nancy Bechtle is okay with the changes coming to her backyard. [SFist]

Expanding the Long War: Sobering analysis from Tom Hayden. [Beyond Chron]

A Board Game for SF Commuters: Goodness knows you'll have plenty of time to play it. [The Bold Italic]

Facebook Envisions AI to Keep You from Uploading Embarrassing Pics: What do we do if they're all embarrassing, though? [Wired]

Previewing Market's Brewcade: We were at the bar/arcade last night too, and we'd still be there, drinking Anchor Steam and playing Bubble Bobble, but finally they had to ask us to leave at two in the morning. Sad. [Hoodline]
