Welcome to Lazy News, the new Valleywag feature that saves you the time of actually reading news articles. The first article we'll slice-and-dice is the San Francisco Chronicle's business feature from Sunday.

  • Title: Web 2.0 has a local address
  • Subtitle: South Park, the neighborhood that fostered the dot-com boom, is back
  • Trend angle: San Fran is back too — the whole Valley is back. And this time the businesses are real.
  • Poster children: Adaptive Path, Rubyred Labs, Wired, Technorati, VideoEgg, Mule Design Studio, and other tech companies from Bryant to Brannan, Second Street to Third Street
  • Photos: Aerial shot infographic, kids in the park, street signs, and Rubyred's Thor Muller at the Cereal Bar.
  • Lead: South Park startup Rubyred Labs has a trendy Cereal Bar.
