Hehe, thanks! :) Yeah, discovered that they started putting ads in the mobile messenger when I loaded up yesterday. I was like, 'wtf?' That place isn't community, it's 100% a targeted marketing platform in the guise of a meeting place. When you have to pay for your friends to see the things you post and even your mom can't find you because of an algorithm...yuck. Glad to be here and meeting cool people like you :) Can't say it enough, after the drought I've been through...a breath of fresh air.

Need to look for fellow Steemians here in LA. Get some real world connections going to build the community stronger. I'm in Gamma :)

Meetups in LA sound totally plausible. Huge city with lots of niche interests. Ever get to Nashville, hit me up.

Totally, big city, lots of people. Just need to find them, hehe. If I head your way you can expect a friendly message :) Think I have some relatives around there.

Are we talking about a larger event of Steem holders or just a local meetup type deal? I'm up in Chicago, but based on what the event it could make the drive. Also willing to help coordinate if you would like a hand putting together a larger event.
