Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2007 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

At my request, Eric Fischer calculated the long tail of San Francisco street lengths as part of his effort to walk every block in SF.

I threatened to set up flash mobs that would walk the streets with him. This was abandoned as unworkable.
