LOS ANGELES AND WHY IT IS SO ATTRACTIVE- Home - Quora

(4) Home - Quora: "People


LA is not just for people in “the industry.” Yes, there are lots of Hollywood types. Fame is the town’s chief currency. Throw a rock on Sunset and you’ll hit at least one aspiring actor fresh off the bus from Iowa.
Then there’s the other LA. Spend time in Westwood, Silver Lake, Downtown LA. You’ll meet designers, scientists, entrepreneurs. People who are ambitious and intent on changing the world.
Here are a few of the things my LA friends are doing:
· Building a personal sexual health app called SAFE to help people get tested for STDs and verify the health status of prospective partners
· Developing Greenfly, a tech platform that helps sports leagues, teams, and media companies produce and distribute video content and interact with fans
LA is different. The city can seem like a sprawling tangle of freeways and strip malls. It can be hard to get to know people. It takes time to get oriented and discover the city’s treasures.
I’m getting there. Magic Castle, The Pacific Seas at Clifton’s, Smorgasburg DTLA, Busby’s East, Malibu Little Beach House, Guerilla Tacos — there’s a long list of places I’m excited to check out.
