Experimental Jet Set

For somebody who spends most of his free time jockeying a laptop, I’ve actually got a semi-busy social week ahead of me:

  • Tomorrow night is April’s BarCamp LA Geek Dinner at Shakey’s in Hollywood. While I’m not so much of a fan of Shakey’s grub, I’m really looking forward to hanging out with the BarCampers again.
  • Friday brings the Helvetica screening at USC. I managed to pick up a ticket when they were announced — and it would seem that I have to pay $25 at the door as I didn’t have to pay anything when I RSVP’ed. Part of me is debating going to the Laguna Beach screening instead tho. Tickets are still available for the 9PM show and they’re only $15 via PayPal. Decisions, decisions…
  • Sunday morning, I hop a flight to Oakland for a well deserved micro-vacation in San Francisco. It’s really more of a weekend trip than a vacation, but I’m going to be doing my fair share of relaxing. My Monday afternoon is spoken for — I’m supposed to be getting lunch with Andy (and hopefully Leonard) on the Yahoo! campus — but if you’re up for hanging out, drop me a direct message on Twitter (or an IM for that matter). I’ll try to squeeze in some face time with as many folks as I can before I see LCD Soundsystem with Frazier on Monday night and fly home for work early Tuesday morning.

See? That’s a busy week for the likes of me — but I’m looking forward to it…

BarCamp LA 3 Next Weekend!

Heads up! The 3rd installment of BarCamp LA is coming up next weekend (March 24th & 25th, 2007) at Little Radio Warehouse in Downtown LA. For those folks who’ve never been to a BarCamp before, it’s a completely free conference (with meals, snacks and beer) where the schedule is open for the attendees to give presentaions on topics they are passionate about. Want to talk about Microformats or web frameworks? Great! Is teaching folks yoga or how to mod their Wii more your speed? That’s totally awesome too!

As with most 2 day BarCamp type events, everyone’s encouraged to stay overnight — so bring your sleeping bag and your laptop — if they’re so inclined. If they do, they’re in for a geekfest that’s guaranteed to last until the wee hours of the morning at the very least.

So if you’re going to be in the LA area that weekend, I’d really love to see you there. Feel free to sign up on the wiki and throw your name on the list at Upcoming.


Sore joints. Stuffy head. Tired. Bloodshot eyes. Yep, I’m straight up sick…

Of course this means that I’m not making it to El Cholo tonight. Sorry BarCampers! I’ll catch you next month, I guess.

A Change Of Plans

Due to the slightly hectic day that I had at work, I totally spaced on the fact that Cory’s LA book launch was tonight. Shit. I really wanted to go to that…

I mean, I bought a copy of Overclocked so I could get it signed and everything. *sigh* C’est la vie.

BarCamp LA, The Weblog

The BarCamp wiki is great for coordinating planning and all, but I’ve got a theory that we can spread the word on BarCamp LA related events (monthly dinners, future BarCamps, etc.) better with a proper weblog. Check it out if you’ve got a second!

P.S. If you’re free the weekend of November 11th & 12th, swing on by the Little Radio Warehouse. The price (free) is right if nothing else… ;)
