HSRA Los Angeles Taking Shape

Posted Tuesday, July 17th, 2007 01:56 am GMT -5 in Technology, Work

Made it to Los Angeles today from Seattle, courtesy of Alaska Airlines. They had the lowest price and for the most part, it was an OK experience. I was ticked off, though, that I had to waste time in a line called “bag check” that wouldn’t let me check my bags until I stood in a different line to get a printed boarding pass. Oh well, at least they got the bags off the plane and into the baggage claim quickly.

I’m here to help set up the technology infrastructure at the new High School for Recording Arts Los Angeles. I stopped there on the way to the hotel and was amazed at the progress in the big space.

Tomorrow will mostly be a planning day–creating network maps, gathering ISP info, taking inventory, deciding on security camera placement and updating the work plan.

This time I’m staying at the Hotel Hermosa in Hermosa Beach. My first impression was not great, but I think it’s growing on me. It does have a Fatburger across the street, so it can’t be all bad.

The internet connection didn’t work when I got here (and it costs extra), but it seems to be good now…
