What's your interest in LA Tech?

Writer & social entrepreneur...always nice hearing everyone's anecdotes and experiences in the tech field. And hearing anyone else's thoughts on how to alleviate homelessness in America using tech. Also, I'm developing a Silicon Valley-based TV pilot. So if you tell me an anecdote that I can use in my pilot, I'll buy you a drink. (And if I buy you more drinks, maybe you'll tell me more good anecdotes!)

If you could see anything change about the LA Tech community, what would it be?

When you meet someone at a networking event, you must be able to speak five sentences first without saying the words "programmer" or "funding". You should want to connect with bright people--and not just because someone says the right magic word.

What's your favorite beer?

Blue Moon

Know any good happy hours in LA?

Bodega Wine Bar on Wednesday nights ($20 bottles all night long). I try to collect a bunch of friends (and friends-of-friends) to meet there one Wednesday every other month. I have a better conversion rate than Match.com or Meetup.com!
