This week's kerfuffle in the world of publishing is about Microsoft's major funding of Barnes and Noble's ebook and ereader program. But I have nothing very interesting to say about that. Instead I will mention that this morning on my way to work I saw a city crew washing the below mural off the street at the intersection of Market and Montgomery. So I looked it up and it turns out it was created yesterday morning in the course of a May Day peaceful protest. Its interesting to contemplate why they chose to remove it in the middle of the morning commute this morning.
