Saving remote workers money & solving crowdchoice

Like many folks who lived in SF, my commute was always eventful. Even though it was only a 15 minute walk from my apartment to the office, I would pass at least a few homeless encampments every day, people who are obviously mentally ill screaming to themselves in the streets, and usually a few drug deals done out in the open. After a while, I decided to do something and after some research, it was obvious that the issue was mostly a policy generated one. So, I tried to get involved in local politics — I will spare you the details other than to say if you ever would like to 1) waste your time or 2) feel really really bad about the state of humanity, then all you need to do is get involved in SF politics. After a short while, I decided to make an escape and moved first to Berlin and then eventually on to Estonia.
