It's that time again--another day, another video about gentrification. It can get tiring, we know. But this one fascinated us.
Why? Well, for starters, it's not shot with a cellphone. But more curiously, it's weird to hear a start-uppy guy--speculative after a nurturing breakfast at Craftsman & Wolves--say the Mission won't be that interesting down the road.
That's not to say we haven't heard that line before either, because people have been claiming the Mission would be lame in 5 years since the 80s. And that fear has been coming up to the surface a lot lately (for some of the funniest thoughts on this, former neighborhood comic Chris Garcia has been working on a pretty solid bit about Apple Storification of Valencia restaurants). However, when it comes time for finger-pointing, tech is oft on the receiving end, not the other way around.
