Venue

Venue graciously provided by Factual (http://www.factual.com/), founded in 2007 by Gil Elbaz, co-founder of Applied Semantics (which launched ASI's AdSense product). Applied Semantics was acquired by Google in 2003. Gil has had a lifelong passion for organizing and structuring information, and building smart tools which can make better sense of data. To that end, he set out to develop an open data platform and community in an effort to maximize data accuracy, transparency, and availability. Fellow data lovers -- Tim Chklovski, chief scientist & founding engineer, Eva Ho, an ex-Googler, along with Bill Michels, former GM of Yahoo BOSS, have joined him in this ambitious project.

Parking

Factual is in the Gateway West building, next to the Westfield Century City mall on the east side. It's the only building with big red "Westfield" signs on top.

We recommend you park at the mall. You get 3 hours free and the Factual building is a short easy walk: Exit from the mall parking garage up to ground level, head east, pass the Lens Crafters, and you'll be able to enter the west side of 1801. Then just hit the elevators to go up to floor 14, and Factual is in Suite 1450.

Food & Drinks

Food and drinks will be provided.  In order to cover costs we'd ask that you consider making a ($) donation - a link will be provided on the meetup page to contribute via Paypal or you can donate in person.  Thanks in advance!
