LA Tech Karaoke

Daynah at "On the Rox" in HollywoodThe LA Tech community isn’t just about geeking out. They work hard, but play harder. I had a blast at the The FATHER of All Karaoke Parties event last night! The Roxy on Sunset was closed to the general public and only the Tech Geeks were allowed inside.

What do you get when you bring a lot of geeks to a club? The answer is a lot of craziness and tons of fun! It was a nice relaxing night after a stressful work week. I’m already looking forward to the next event. :)

If you are interested in these kinds of LA Tech events, please let me know and I’ll give you a heads up.

Wordcamp SF 2009

Wordcamp SFI’m so excited to be attending Wordcamp SF for the first time! I’ve been using WordPress way before it was even WordPress and the evolution of the software has been amazing to watch all these years.

It was originally written by Michel V and called b2 (then cafelog). I use to help him beta new versions of b2. Michel moved onto new projects and stopped developing b2, and that’s when Matt Mullenweg stepped in. WordPress has come such a long way. To me it’s like watching a child grow up!

I hope to see you at Wordcamp SF 2009! It’s on Saturday, May 30th. And I will most likely organize a Tweetup the night before, so keep an eye out. :)

WordCamp San Francisco is a conference organized by the creators of WordPress for our users and developers. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. The event is open to WordPress.com & WordPress.org users alike.

New Media Vault Event

I attended LA Mixers & Tubefilter‘s "The New Media Vault" event at the Crocker Club on Thursday, Feb 26th, 2009 and had a great time! It was great meeting Twitter friends for the first time, as well as making new ones!

The venue was quite unique. It use to be an old bank that was converted into a bar. We had a ton of fun exploring the vaults and such. ;)

One thing I forgot to bring this night was a CF card for my Digital SLR. Boy I was bummed! So I can’t tell you I how happy I was when Wm. Marc let me borrow one of his. Thanks so much Marc, you saved the night!

More about the event.
Beautiful photos taken by Albertech.net. Thank you so much!

I haven’t had the chance to write a decent post about my experience at New Media Expo yet. But it was definitely amazing. I met a lot of wonderful, incredible, and quite inspiring people. And I also got some great photos of my one day at the event. Here are a few that I’d like to share. I finally purchased a Flickr Pro account too, so I’ve been busy customizing that as well!

New Media Expo was like Hollywood, for geeks! And I mean that as the best compliment possible! I’m happy that I got the chance to meet Felicia Day, iJustine, Mostly Lisa, Veronica Belmont, Robert Scoble, Sarah Austin, Colin Devroe, Rob Sandie, Brandice, Rachel, Michelle Galvan, DJSteen, Geoff Smith, Chris Marquardt, Christine Lu, Chris Luckhardt, Greg Walker, Tony Wang, and so many more!

I also got to see Leo Laporte and Amber Mac do net@night live! Didn’t get to meet them because they were usually behind the camera. :)

I’m looking forward to next year’s event. :)

I’m going to the New Media Expo next week! Are you?!

This Expo is a hands-on, exciting, “how-to” event with practical conference sessions about how to produce high-quality online audio and video content, grow a loyal audience, and even make a few bucks with your content in creative ways.

I’m super excited! Recently I’ve been learning how to create and edit videos, but there’s still always a lot more to learn!

Rob and Colin have put together this great video about the expo. Take a look!

There’s also a FatBurget TweetUp on Friday night if you’re interested, as well as many other events!
