And curate I shall. Since I share the Susterian disdain for “conference ho-ing” I intend to inject my dispassionate rigor for why you ought to go to any given event. I’ve accepted this responsibility because candidly, my dear Silicon Beach, Silicon Valley still thinks we’re chumps. Wear this chip on your shoulder. Then see 90 percent of LA’s parties as a waste of your time, because on any given Sunday we wake up, watch this video, and get back to work.
As always, I’d love to hear your feedback. Feel free to ping me at @galica or firstname.lastname@example.org.
