Big excitement for me – I finally got to meet Brigham Yen in person! I nominated him to be on the blogger panel, and he said yes! Brigham blogs about DTLA via DTLA Rising: the new developments, new establishments and more! He recently pioneered a movement to convert parking meters into donation collections for the homeless! Read about it here!

Here I am with Brigham and Lawrence of DTLA Rising!

Big excitement for #SMCLA. We trended on Twitter during the event. Love it when that happens!

Serena, President of Social Media Club LA, made an awesome Storify collection of tweets from the night. See it here.
