    Thanks for the repost Douglas! It looks like beautiful weather this weekend. We have both indoor and outdoor spaces for people to play. There are some structured activities for those who like to know what to expect, but there’s also plenty of room for people to just hang out, network and collaborate.

    There’s still two free rooms available at the Ojai Guest House for anyone who wants to come up Friday or stay over Saturday night.

    Also, for those with partners who don’t care to geek out, there are lots of fun activities nearby, from hiking to shopping, from spas to galleries. Check out the Ojai Post for more info and links. Here’s a post from one of our vlogger friends, Chris Ritke, who will be discussing the production of this video and his plans for a larger project that goes cross-country.
