The 2012 election broke records with 31.7 million political tweets. Election Day was by far the most tweeted about event in US political history.
My book, Golden Gates, comes out on Feb. 18, 2020. It's about how housing got so messed up. The pre-order tab in this link has lots of large and small booksellers from Powell's to Amazon. As they say in the real estate business: It's a great time to buy! https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/585765/golden-gates-by-conor-dougherty/hardcover/ …
It is not often that I see my 1980 undergraduate senior thesis on land use regulations, the origins of NIMBYism and the affordable housing crisis in California get cited - thanks @ConorDougherty and his great new book Golden Gates - see an excerpt at
On LitHub I wrote about housing books and other works that inspired me during Golden Gates. H/Ts to @just_shelter @nhannahjones @jonathanmahler @SandowBirk @Diane_Keaton and a bunch of other people who are either dead or don't appear to be on Twitter.
Economically speaking, I can't say that going from coding to journalism is a good idea. But I'm so happy budding reporter @sashaperigo is doing it. This insightful piece about the bizarro political coalitions that make up suburban NIMBYs is her best yet. https://sf.curbed.com/2020/2/20/21122662/san-francisco-bay-area-nimbys-history-nimby-development …
Any conversation about capitalism being broken must somewhere include the words “canned water startup.”
The housing crisis playing out in the #BayArea is a microcosm of the greater issues gripping the country. @ConorDougherty joins @KellyCNBC to talk about housing in America and his new book "Golden Gates: Fighting for Housing in America."
Great talking with my old buddy @KellyCNBC. We’ve come a long way from drinking beer in the cubicle.
How 1970s environmentalists planted the seeds of today’s housing crisis. https://buff.ly/2SEXAcF
And another take from the author of new book on the Bay Area's (and urban America's) housing mess: "it is disingenuous for people to show up to San Francisco three, four, five, even 10 years ago and anoint themselves warriors of gentrification but not participants in it"
The coalition fighting for housing +economic justice is large, diverse, and challenging to coalesce. Especially in our current fight for the CRA, it's important we bring these voices together. @ConorDougherty captures what it could look like: https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/02/building-enough-housing-requires-unlikely-coalition/606739/ … #TreasureCRA
When a guest asked who the main “villain” of the housing crisis was, Dougherty said apathy. Thanks to @ConorDougherty, for sharing Golden Gates with Kepler’s! Thanks to Menlo Together, the Housing Leadership Council, Peninsula For Everyone and the many YIMBY groups for coming.

Re-upping this Golden Gates excerpt I did for @TheAtlantic. It's about the long history of the housing shortage, and how the only way to solve it is to build a new housing constituency in which gentrifiers and the gentrified are somehow on the same side. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/02/building-enough-housing-requires-unlikely-coalition/606739/ …
Here are a couple of articles that are worth reading — from housing to health, these stories use data to explore challenges we face and demonstrate how policy solutions along with civic engagement can make a real difference in people’s lives. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/13/business/economy/housing-crisis-conor-dougherty-golden-gates.html …
