Mayor Ed Lee’s trip to Ireland was an eye-opener, revealing innovative programs to expose youth to technology that make SF look old-school – like we’re still still hoarding VHS tapes and Palm PDAs.

As of last night, the San Francisco Chronicle has put its daily content behind a paywall at sfchronicle.com. In an announcement, the Chron says that sfgate.com will continue to exist, but that subscriptions are required to read the premium content at the new website. It’ll be interesting to see how this iteration of the Chron’s get-paid-for-our-work plan is received, as they tried it once before, in a different format, a couple years ago. You can read about how that started, and ended in the attached East Bay Express story.
