Also note, for all those attending, at 5 PM we will move over to the hotel bar to have the first big StatusCheck drink meetup in LA. If you can't make StatusCampLA, surely you can come and relax at do a StatusCheck!

Raise Your Communities Status

This is the first StatusCampLA and is the third StatusCamp after our successful StatusCampMontreal and StatusCampSF. We want to do more StatusCamps globally and encourage anyone interested in hosting their own StatusCamp. If you are interested, please do message or email I will personally help you get going and will even send you out some shirts and stickers to get started. You might even get Brion, Evan or another StatusNet'r to your city special delivery for the event.
