LA Tech Events -- getting busy again.

After the hibernation month of December, it seems like tech events are popping out of the woodwork here in January!

Tonight (2011-01-11) is CloudCamp LA, an un-conference on all things "Cloud." It is hosted at MorphLabs in El Segundo. More than 200 people are pre-registered! All the in-person tickets are gone, but there are still 30 registrations to watch a streamed video from home. (as of 11:11am on 1/11/11)

Tonight also features a round of Lightning talks at ScaleLA: Los Angeles High Scalability Meetup (formerly Hadoop Meetup) Meetup, hosted by the wonderful folks at Mahalo in Santa Monica.

Tomorrow is the Thousand Oaks Perl Mongers, TO is a bit of a drive from down here, but I try to make it every couple of months to visit my ValueClick peeps. Not gonna happen this month, though.

Friday is TED x Caltech : Feynman's Vision (50 years later). Tilly and I will be volunteering. I'm still unsure if I can make volunteer dinner on Thursday night, for volunteers to mingle with presenters.

Next Tuesday, Steven Hawking returns for a presentation at Caltech. One wonders how much longer he'll be out in public. Caltech Alumni can register for a lottery drawing for tickets (deadline noon on 1/13), everyone else can show up and wait in line.

Wednesday the 19th brings back Los Angeles Perl Mongers, it feel like forever since our November meeting. January finds us visiting our friends at Rent.com -- thanks for hosting! My presentation is still TBD, but I hope to have the directions and presentations squared away this week. Thanks for coming!

Thursday the 20th is another wonderful Mindshare, back in the comfortable digs of The Independent theater downtown. Now with complimentary pre-event Happy Hour! Their schedule is also TBD, good to know I'm not alone on that front.

Just over the horizon to February brings SCALE -- the Southern California Linux Expo., Feb 25-27, 2011. Make your plans now!

L.A. Nerdnite also took off the month of December, as our beloved venue, the Air Conditioned Supper Club, closed or took on new management. Look for an announcement soon of a new hip venue. Who is up for a hollywood BYOB picnic experience?
