Thanks to Jonathan Nelson of Hackers and Founders for promoting the protest. I ride my bike down Market Street every day, so his email got my attention and got me there.

For those who couldn’t make it, I thought I’d take a few pics at the protest. After reviewing the pics, I felt that a “best signs” theme was most appropriate.

Here goes…

Number 7

You’ll soon get the point that San Franciscans believe that the internet creates jobs. Not to mention the common theme of innovation.

Number 6

While many of us in San Francisco may see this as obvious, is it possible that other parts of our great nation do not?

Number 5

A second sign dedicated to the correlation between the internet and job creation. I can tell you first hand that tech positions are some of the most in demand for a reason.

Number 4

Anyone who has worked in a startup should have an appreciation for the phrase “business model”.

Number 3

Another sign about jobs. While the sign is simple, I appreciate the attitude. You’d think Washington would want to do all it can to create jobs these days.

Side note, if you haven’t seen it…check out New York City’s commitment to grooming Software Engineers.

Number 2

I got a good chuckle as I had to squint to read the end of the message. Point taken, and extra points for the hat too!

Number 1

Need I say more…

Extra Credit

Ron Conway said that he is a born and raised 3rd generation San Francisco native. I appreciated everything he had to say about PIPA/SOPA, but that stood out to me the most.

Double Extra Credit

San Francisco’s Finest was on hand to make sure the internet crowd did not get out of hand:)
