I attended the LADOTNET February meetup held at Blankspaces last night. The event topic was: Start ups, Tech and Business Trends with John Shiple. The attendance was pretty massive as this user group is getting bigger and bigger every month. I enjoyed the speaker and presentation a lot. I do notice that it’s a trend that there are a lot of startup businesses growing outside of Silicon Valley.
