Drupal Coworking / Hackerspace: Site visit to Big Art Labs

Start:

Organizers: 

Following the interest shown since the DrupalCamp LA 2010 keynote, the last two LA Drupal meetups and the great discussion at http://groups.drupal.org/node/100049 a group of us are checking out spaces for a coworking / hackerspace. Our first site visit is to Big Art Labs on Wednesday (Groundhog's Day!), February 2, 2011 at 1pm.

While this space will be open to all our friends in the LA Drupal community, this is not an LA Drupal-specific endeavor. If you're interested in a place where creative and technical people gather for a Drupal meetup or Drupal Café every day and the occasional Drupal After Dark at night, then join us and help make this happen!

Big Art Labs is at 651 Clover St., Los Angeles, CA 90031. There's so much parking that we don't know what to do with it all. Sign up below to be on this site visit's mailing list. We'll send you our phone number and any last-minute details if there are any.

We signed the lease and got the keys this week! The founders of this new Drupal coworking / hackerspace have settled on the name Droplabs and we'll be opening the doors to more people some time in the near future.

For all the latest news, stay tuned to @Droplabs on Twitter and "like" Droplabs on Facebook.

That's great. Congratulations.

I have not been in to a drop lab since Berkeley in the early 70's, so this name is quite nostalgia inducing for me.

Right now our slogan is

Right now our slogan is "We're just getting started" but I'll add "Turn on, tune in and drop out" to the list of suggestions!

Droplabs has had a couple slogans, including:

   "We're just getting started"
   "Coworking & Hackerspace in Downtown Los Angeles"
   "Coworking, Classes, Community and More"

… but this one is just made of awesome. I like it! I'll lobby to get that on our business cards.

This is timed to coincide with an office warming at Toyshoppe, one of our neighbors at Big Art Labs, so bring something to throw on the grill, something to drink and a jacket.

Hope you all can make it!
