Geoff Link is editor and publisher of the <a href="http://studycenter.org/test/cce/index.html">Central City Extra</a>, a monthly newspaper serving the Tenderloin, mid-Market, and SOMA neighborhoods. It's put out by the <a href="http://studycenter.org/">Study Center</a>, a publishing house that also supports non-profits.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.15;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:19px;font-family:Arial;color:#000000;background-color:transparent;font-weight:normal;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;">As a journalist, Link has been monitoring changes taking place in this part of the city as tech companies move in, including the displacement of a lot of neighborhood non-profits. He himself has been affected-- the Study Center has had to move twice in the last two years. &nbsp;Link spoke to KALW's Ben Trefny in the offices of Central City Extra.
