Local events marketing firm Delphi Productions has merged with Fort Wayne, Ind.-based ICON Exhibits, a move that will increase the geographic reach of both companies, according to this piece in the San Francisco Business Times. Delphi, which was founded in 1989, is based out at Alameda Point.

The American Stock Exchange has rejected pinkeye drug maker InSite Vision Inc.’s plan to regain compliance with the exchange, according to this piece in the San Francisco Business Times. The company is seeking an appeal.

    Who knew there were all those business and people working out at Alameda Point? Over 1,100 people working there, I understand. How is that "development" and "progress" in Alameda have been re-defined to mean building ONLY housing? Why not grow what's out there already?

    Someone told me that if you enter the 'Point at Central and Oriskany, and turn left at Skyhawk, there's a campsite there that used to be used by the Navy? Google maps has "alameda park" at that location, and I have to drive out and take a look. But I was told there are campsites with podium BBQs (not maintained) and so on – a little campsite in Alameda, right on the Bay! Who knew?

  • DK says:

    DH – I knew about the campsite, I have been there too. When you say it is not maintained, do are being overly polite – It is a broken down dump and just another vandal site.

    Truthfully I don’t know how the agreement with the navy/city is written or who is responsible for, or the owners/controllers of that site, which could be / should be a beautiful site to relax, picnic, or camp.

    There are many scout troops in Alameda, in fact Alameda has its own Boy Scout Council [– very unusual, and a bonus for our island city. It provides a great deal of autonomy compared to all the other East Bay Cities combined into a single EB Council. I think Alameda Scouts (Boy Scout, Girl Scout, cubs…) must have received a large endowment early on to have this advantage…]

    The thing is boy scouts are required to do community service projects – Rehabbing the City’s own campsite seems like an ideal candidate for a scout project. It could even benefit out of town scout troops who want to camp in such a great spot and then spend a day on the Hornet Museum.
