If you were wondering why your Muni ride home took a lot longer tonight, this is the explanation. The rear wheels of the N car I was on decided to turn off down Church Street, while the rest carried on straight along Duboce. There were a lot of sparks overhead as the power connector sheared off, followed by a nasty crunch, but we were going slowly and nobody was hurt. Happily it happened just outside my apartment, so I was able to hop off without too much disruption, and it sounds like service should be back to normal tomorrow.
I also had to share this business card I came across. All I can say is that I'll be passing along some suggestions to my co-founder and CEO Julian in the morning.
