Ben Rubin of Meerkat


Ben Rubin of Meerkat

Meerkat! Few things have tapped into the pop cultural vein as quickly as this cute animal and its associated live-streaming video app. For those not in the know, Meerkat, Ben Rubin's progeny, is an app that lets you live-broadcast the most interesting moments of your life (and some of the mundane ones) to your Twitter followers. Within moments of trying this ish out, we were fully hooked, and we're not just saying that to suck up.

If you haven't checked it yet, download Meerkat — these guys are kicking ass, taking names, and helping to define the future of broadcasting. Looks like they launched on Android today, coincidentally. Move fast, break the internet.

Now for the good stuff: Ben Rubin's SF food picks! We can't deny Southern Pacific's day-drinking excellence. Love that place.

But wait, there's more. In appropriate fashion, Ben is also going to do a Meerkat livestream to talk about his picks today, so follow him on Twitter or Meerkat to tune in. It's going down at 5pm PST/8pm EST.
