Back to the Future

“The last time San Francisco went through what it’s going through right now was in the late ’90s, but the politics of the late ’90s changed the city. [Former mayor] Willie Brown suffered big losses at the ballot box, the planning commission was split, many members of the board of supervisors lost their jobs. There was this animus toward the tech community and gentrification from the late ’90s even into the mid 2000s. And it played a huge part in blocking Wi-Fi. And it’s interesting that’s happening again.” 

— Lt. Governor (and former SF Mayor) Gavin Newsom
