One thing I love about LA is the amazing wealth of talent we have here!
This morning I met with Jeff Turner, Dustin Luther and other tech geeks for our first "Doctor's Note" meetup. After that, it was off to lunch and some play time at the Apple Store with Jeff as our guide.
Everyone has their own favorite technology and their own ways of using that technology, so it's great to get together with other tech-oriented people once in a while to see what's new and how people are using existing tools. Check out our video comment on Rain City Guide for an on-the-fly video post courtesy of Director Jeff and the local Apple Store for an example of how videos can be used on blogs. [Yes, they were trying to convert me to Apple, and almost succeeded!]
If you're in or near Los Angeles, be sure to catch Dustin's half-day seminar in Pasadena on May 30. I guarantee you'll pick up some great tips both during and after this seminar, since Dustin includes a free 90-day email-based training program to all in attendance. At this seminar, Dustin will team up with Jim Marks of Virtual Results for 4 hours of hard-hitting, no-sales-pitch training that should keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Topics will include websites, social networking, blogging and marketing. Register here, and I'll see you there!
P.S. Be sure to ask Dustin if his wife is ok after her meetup with a sparkling-clean window. Sorry, Dustin, had to put that in! ;-)
