Fun Fact

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 …

Quoted @cheddar

Canned water startup @LiquidDeath announced it raised $9 million in Series A funding to help push the brand into more brick-and-mortar retailers. https://chdr.tv/089f3 

Any conversation about capitalism being broken must somewhere include the words “canned water startup.”

Quoted @CNBCTheExchange

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"

Around 145 or so Eastern I’ll be on CNBC talking Golden Gates and housing with my old colleague/cubicle buddy @KellyCNBC, who I met as an intern in the WSJ econ group, but has now surpassed all of us.

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

My real life and work life collide, since all I ever talk about in my real life is housing. @ConorDougherty comes on #MakeMeSmart to tell us why every problem is a housing problem. Please enjoy!

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/ …

The Pete/Amy dynamic is quite something

They seem to be competing for the title of president of the Midwest

Quoted @BarackObama

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 …

If you're interested in what Pres. Obama was tweeting about on Tuesday, check out our interview this morning with @ConorDougherty. His new book is out and he joins us live on @cheddar in the 10a EST hour.

"People who lose when new housing is blocked don’t even know who they are. Organizing people who don’t yet live somewhere is a seemingly impossible task," @ConorDougherty writes:

No housing question in #DemocraticDebate but at least they’re moving to climate change. @OurHomesVotes @dianeyentel
