    And if San Francisco still has people lined up to the moon waiting for them then the price is too low.

    I don't consider myself a progressive, but FFS we're talking about someone selling access to a public area, for private gain. That's not how things are supposed to work.

    And by no means is it free speech being stifled. Reasonable restrictions on capitalism are necessary, and this is one of em'.

    I just don't see how the city can stop this, legally or practically.

    Just watch.

    They will.

    And many of us disagree with the legality of it. I am amazed that anyone doesn't see it as a crime.

    I don't necessarily mean these particular apps. I'm talking about people sharing knowledge about parking on the Internet, either for money or for free. Cellphones and tablets are ubiquitous; everyone has one. So, practically speaking, how can San Francisco stop this sort of activity if someone organizes it underground? If the city sells a judge on the idea that it can regulate the Internet and shuts these apps down, others will surface to replace them as long as there's a dearth of available spots in San Francisco.

    I'm not entirely sure either.

    But just letting it happen seems questionable as well.
