San Francisco: Overrated or just plain craptacular?

If you've been reading BB for a while, you know that I live in San Francisco and that I'm not a big fan of the city. Nick Denton's latest column really nails my problem with the city.

Well, what about the alternative scene? The Yo-Yo man, a 300-pound mound of a man who dazzles with yo-yos. Where else, a San Francisco booster asked, would someone feel so free to express themselves? A typical San Francisco misconception. Personal discovery is rarely interesting and, in most normal cities, robustly ignored.
