Considering LA is roughly the opposite of an ERE Village, I figure it could be good to band together, exchange tips and ideas, gather wisdom from those who have been doing this longer than I, etc. Also, I'll be trying to recruit people, particularly if you live in the west side, to rent a house and have like 30 people living there? Not sure how many you'd need to make it economical, but that's the right number of digits, I think. Housing is almost impossible to do well here, and I can only assume it will be a subject of conversation.
I'm not entirely sure where we would meet, but looking at the map of public transport, central LA (or Union Station, I suppose) might be easiest. I live in Santa Monica (ugh, I know), so Westside would be a little more convenient for me personally.
Who would be interested in something like this?
