Viewed as a whole, the design progression of the iMac line over its 15-year lifespan is pretty amazing.

Biking (or walking or driving) around San Francisco is great for any number of reasons. One of the best, though, is the ever-changing gallery of street art on display, often in the most unlikely places. Sirron Norris, Mars1, Bigfoot and Erica Il Cane are just a few of the our super-talented artists here in SF.
