Sunday night, San Francisco’s tech elite gathered downtown for the first night of the annual Crunchies, a conference and award show celebrating all things startup. A long line extended down the block leading to the Davies Symphony Hall, and private security guards checked tickets at the door. Killing our elders is a damn sin. Protesters held signs that reworked the Crunchies into the Crappies, a parody award show. Were protesting here because we dont think theres anything to be awarded, said Patricia Kerman, who was evicted by her landlord after living in San Francisco for more than 40 years.
