Over the Weekend: Are We Ready for Valley-wood?

This past weekend, San Francisco was a playing ground for several of its annual shenanigans (between Oktoberfest and LovEvolution fest we didn't have a second free) . But there was a more subtle love fest which you likely missed – one that didn't involve people donning butterfly wings or banana costumes. Well, sort of.

You see, among other things, San Francisco is quickly emerging into a breeding ground for an odd little romance between technology and commercial art. Perhaps it's the growing saturation of startup-driven tech in our everyday lives (read: Facebook , Twitter, Foursquare , etc.) that's lead to a blurring of industry lines. Whatever the reason, last Thursday night's launches of the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (GAFFTA) and Justin Timberlake-backed, SF-based startup Robo.to illustrated yet more instances of these two worlds getting it on.
