Biker Down – Kirk Jane

A bicycle messenger who had recently started his own delivery business was killed Wednesday when he was hit by a pickup next to Alamo Square, San Francisco police said.

Kirk Janes, 35, was killed at 10:55 a.m. at Fulton and Steiner streets at the northeast corner of the square. Janes had recently co-founded the business American Flyer and was also known as an artist, filmmaker, photographer and fencing enthusiast.

Janes was heading east on Fulton toward downtown in a bike lane when the pickup driver, headed north on Steiner, struck him in the intersection. Police Department spokesman Sgt. Wilfred Williams said it is unclear who had the right of way at the intersection, which is controlled by signal lights.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. …this was sad to begin w/ & knowing the area kinda brings it home a little closer but some of the comments that accompanied the story really proved what morons people can be…

    …as cyclists, we get pointed at regularly for creating ‘all’ the problems & these dim fucking bulbs couldn’t even wait ’till the man was put away…
