  • Whitney Brothers; Processing, Jbum

    At BarCampLA, Jim Bumgardner was inspirational for many things. One small thing was for pointing out these two films: “Lapis,” a short film by James Whitney: “Catalog,” a short film by John Whitney, 1961 Over on Coverpop, Bumgardner shows off work inspired by John Whitney: Whitney Music Box which is beautiful and hypnotic and surprisingly…



  • Los Angeles Tech Networking

    For the past year I’ve ramped up my own tech networking. Someone asked on the excellent and long-running Web405 list for places to network a la VIC (Venice Interactive Community) of the old days (late 1990s) and these were the answers: BarCampLA: http://barcampla.org/ Dealmaker LA: http://www.dealmakermedia.com/la.html Digital Family Reunion: http://www.digitalfamilyreunion.net/ Dorkbot: http://dorkbot.org/dorkbotsocal/ ExecTech: http://www.meetup.com/ExecTec/ Geek…

  • Stating Where It’s At

    Note: I wrote this in a text editor around October 2nd, nearly three weeks ago. I’m posting with only minor edits to what was in the text file. My latest contract is going very well technically, I’m enjoying using SilverStripe as well as jQuery day in and day out. It’s a pleasure to write OO PHP….

  • BarCampLA5, including YUI 101 Presentation Slides

    I had a great time this weekend at BarCampLA5 (barcampla.org). It was a great event, despite some apparent venue hiccups and dramas behind the scenes, plus delays due to traffic from the LA Marathon on Sunday. It went really well, held at the AOL facility in Beverly Hills. Kudos to the planners, particularly Jason Cosper…

  • BarCamp LA Blog

    BarCamp LA has a posse blog. Awesome. Main page. I missed the meeting last night. I’m just wiped out this week. But I intend to go to the camp.

  • BarCamp Los Angeles Geek Dinner

    Leah, Devon and I went to BarCamp / BarCampLA-Geek2 last night. It was pretty great. Social and nerdy, and good food at Mao’s Kitchen. Dev was too young to make it into The Brig, but he was mixing it up at Mao’s. Good group of people, and we’ll be returning to such events in the…
