    Deb and I talked about our in front of the camera persona and we agreed that she's the one who speaks much more clearly and convincingly while I make up for all my "kindas" and "you knows" with some good old fashioned folksiness. I do really want to practice my speaking presentation a bit more to be more concise, just in case I get more of these opportunities.

    You're right, Seattle is not far behind, and every time anyone writes something about SF being ahead you can count on commenters from Seattle pointing out how far their lovely city has come. I think that's great and really the kind of healthy and good-spirited competition we need to have. As I said in the diary, my SF pride would not take the least bit of a hit if we were overtaken by Seattle, because it really just means that all of us collectively are getting ahead.

    The waste classification is an interesting one, and subject to much debate. It's where some of the criticism of Zero Waste comes from, that it fails to count certain industrial wastes. I have to read up on it more, I'm not too well versed in it. SF does have a toxic waste program for paints and those kinds of things, but I agree some things that I may not even know of will be hard to eliminate unless we make some bigger infrastructural changes towards a more organic foundation.
