Last Call for the Showcase!

Hello, Net2LA! Happy Bastille Day.

A couple of important updates re: this month's Meetup...please scan for the bold headers and read more if interested. Also, there will be a second member blast coming through shortly after this one with job postings.


So far, I haven't heard from anyone interested in presenting, so we're switching up the plan a bit. There will still be room for people to showcase their projects. However, inspired by this comment from C.J. "I am hoping future meetings focus more on the purpose of Net2: remixing the web for social change,? we're going to showcase nonprofits and other companies current using the power of the web and social networks to create change locally and around the world.

If you would like to participate by presenting your own project, or a company you love who uses tech well, please contact me.


Last month, CAUSECAST changed offices, and unfortunately, no longer has the ability to host us on Tuesdays. Mahalo has also booked a regular Tuesday event making our former hosting space unavailable. I am talking with BLANKSPACES and LA Meeting & Event Center regarding hosting this month's Meetup. However, I recognize that both of these locations are outside of Santa Monica, and therefore may be a lil' bit inconvenient for some.

I'd like to secure a space by early next week, so I'm looking for two things (one or both) from you, Net2LA members:
  • vote for either BLANKSPACES (mid-Wilshire) or LA Meeting & Event Center (Culver City)
  • suggest another space with good seating, a computer, and projector


If an effort to promote our groups talents, we started the Expertise Exchange last month. I also realize that some of our group members may have lost or be in need of work, so...

I'd like to start an occasional job blast that will also be posted to the Expertise Exchange. Please send any job listings you may have, or your contact info and skill set if you are looking for work.

The first job blast (and a slight change to the Expertise Exchange guidelines) will come shortly after this email.

Thanks for listening,

-- Bryan
