Worldwide #JELLYWEEK 2012
January 16, 2012 is Worldwide #JELLYWEEK in North America and at Droplabs we're celebrating with a day of coworking (or jelly, as they call it in Australia). You're invited!
What's this Worldwide #JELLYWEEK 2012, you say? In simplest terms, we're participating in a global event with thousands of coworkers and coworking spaces around the world and are opening our doors to provide free coworking space during the event. Drop in any time between 10am and 6pm. We'll also be in the #droplabs IRC channel during the day.
Here's what others are saying about the event:
Let's make the global coworking movement visible. Everybody is invited to start a jelly at his place and to invite coworkers from all over the world.
Push your local coworking initiatives and develop ideas and actions to connect the global community! JELLY is a casual working event. People are coming together (in a person's home, a coffee shop, a public space or an office) to work for the day.
Bring a laptop (or whatever you need to get your work done) and a friendly disposition. And you are free to create an interesting program (barcamps, exhibitions, workshops, networking events, exchange programs with other coworking communities etc.) during the jelly week.
Just bring your laptop, your business cards or whatever else you need. You're also welcome to bring some light food, sodas or beers to share with others at the workshop.
We share a large parking lot with Big Art Labs and there's plenty of free parking. After you pull into the parking lot, park to the left of the entrance and follow the signs to Droplabs.
Please note that our guest wireless network is limited to 1Mb per client, so bring your MiFi router or a phone you can tether with if for some reason you need a lot of bandwidth. Access to our high-speed network is provided with a Droplabs membership.
For any changes to our agenda, stay tuned to this meetup announcement follow @Droplabs on Twitter (or both!) to be notified when the agenda has been updated.
After we wrap up the night and clean up, a group of us will go to a nearby restaurant or pub. In the past we've had beers and a bonfire and were serenaded by Skrillex. We've also gone to a variety of other locations, including Barbara's at The Brewery (at 620 Moulton Ave., just a 5 minute walk away) and Carnitas Michoacan (on 1901 N. Broadway, just a 5 minute drive away).

Droplabs is in the Mission Junction neighborhood of Los Angeles at Big Art Labs, just 1 mile down Main St. from Philippes (the first-ever venue for LA Drupal meetups!) and Union Station. We're one block west of The Brewery, the largest live-and-work artists' colony in the world.
When entering the parking lot, park anywhere in the main area and follow the yellow signs to Droplabs. To carpool or catch the Droplabs shuttle from Union station, post a comment below.
