Jerk Tech

Interesting interview on CNET, with ” The Most Hated Man in San Francisco” (Brian Mayer).

Mayer is the “inventor” of the App ReservationHop — or he was for the single day it was live, before he pulled it back under anger.

ReservationHop would reserve blocks of reservations at the most popular restaurants, the resell that for which they paid nothing. If no one paid ReservationHop for the table, they would cancel the reservation just hours early.

It is the second in a new category called “Jerk Tech.” The initial member was another San Francisco upstart App called MonkeyParking, which tried to auction PUBLIC parking places — the City of San Francisco made them desist!

(Is there something about San Francisco? The answer is “Yes.”)
