It has been six months since the last major anti-tech bus-blocking protests, and San Francisco’s local characters and Silicon Valley tech titans are finally showing they can agree on some things.
Or at least they can make a video together.
For the launch of One City, a campaign to unite tech companies, elected officials and public opinion, everyone from San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee to Twitter co-founder Biz Stone made a cameo appearance. The video below promotes One City’s big initiative, called Circle the Schools, which partners a Bay Area tech company with every public school in San Francisco.
The joke: Stone starts the video off by saying, in an interview, “My book will launch soon,” and all of sudden everyone is asking about this MyBook, as though it were a new iPhone.
It’s the cast list — peppered with SF-famous names and types — that makes it work: Duboce Girl. Burrito Guy. Tech Journalist. Lyft Driver. M.C. Hammer.
