TechFire Ignite Summit on May 28, 2015

2015 TechFire Ignite Summit on May 28.

Last year, TechFire’s seven events featured nationally prominent speakers from the likes of Kleiner Perkins, Greylock, SV Angel, First Round Capital, Dollar Shave Club, DogVacay, and more, and brought together 1700+ registrants, including many key players in LA tech.

2015 will be even better. We’re thrilled to announce the first round of speakers for our next TechFire Ignite Summit, on May 28, 2015, in Santa Monica: from Facebook’s former global head of communications, to a prominent founder who sold his latest company to AOL four days after launch (then bought it back!), to a leading bitcoin investor and the founder of an enterprise SAAS success story, our speakers (below) are not-to-be-missed.


To celebrate, we’ve released a batch of heavily discounted tickets; get yours here before they sell out.  Prices go up Thursday night, or sooner when this batch sells out.



TONY CONRAD, Co-Founder & CEO of & Partner at True Ventures. Tony has sold two companies to AOL, most recently, which he sold four days after launch — and better yet, bought back later for a fraction of the price. At True Ventures, he has led investments in Blue Bottle Coffee, FitBit,, andMakerBot. You could have paid $2995 for a ticket to TechCrunch Disrupt SF to hear him speak there — or for a fraction of that, you can hear him speak at TechFire Ignite!


  • Former Facebook executive BRANDEE BARKER, who helped grow Facebook into a global phenomenon, and more recently has advised clients like Sheryl Sandberg on her Lean In campaign, and companies like Uber, Dropbox, Airbnb, and Spotify. (Read her New York Times profile here.) She’s spoken at SXSW and DLD — and soon TechFire, too! Don’t miss her advice from her years at Facebook and advising Silicon Valley’s top founders.


  • Bitcoin investor DAN MOREHEAD, Founder & CEO of Pantera Capital, a ~$150MM bitcoin investment fund, and bitcoin venture fund. He previously also raised $1.3BN for Pantera as a macro hedge fund. Pantera’s investors include Benchmark, Fortress Investment Group and Ribbit Capital.


  • THERESE TUCKER, Founder, CEO & Chairman of BlackLine, the private-equity backed enterprise financial SAAS company that serves blue-chip customers like Hyatt, United Airlines, MasterCard, and NBCUniversal. Tucker has built BlackLine into an L.A. success story, headquartered here, and with offices from Paris to Sydney.

And more stellar speakers to be announced! (View past speakers.)


Go here to grab a discounted super early bird ticket before they sell out.

Make plans to join us to hear a stellar roster of speakers from Silicon Valley & L.A., and to connect with press, investors, founders, and other tech & business leaders. Check out past attendees.

BevMo! Legal Notice of Class Action Settlement – 5 Cent Sale
BevMo! Legal Notice of Class Action Settlement

 If you bought wine at BevMo’s 5 Cent Sale from October 21, 2005 through February 9, 2010, a class action settlement may affect your rights.


If you purchased one or more two-bottle sets of wine at BevMo pursuant to a 5 Cent Sale during the Class Period, you could get a payment in the form of one or more Discount Coupons from a class action settlement (the “Settlement”).

This Settlement resolves a lawsuit as to whether BevMo allegedly made misleading statements to California consumers with respect to its 5 Cent Sale wine promotion in violation of California Civil Code Section 1750 et seq., California Business and Professions Code Section 17200 et seq., and California Business and Professions Code Section 17500 et seq. BevMo denies the allegations in the lawsuit and denies any wrongdoing and no court has decided that BevMo did anything wrong.

If approved by the Court, the Settlement will provide: (1) permanent changes to BevMo’s marketing practices relating to its 5 Cent Sales; (2) to each person that BevMo’s computer records identify as a member of the Settlement Class (“Settlement Class Members”), one (1) one-dollar ($1.00) Discount Coupon for each two-bottle set of wine purchased pursuant to a 5 Cent Sale during the Class Period; and (3) up to $296,000 in attorneys’ fees, expenses and costs, and a $1,000 award to Plaintiff Peter R. Gray, Jr. (the “Named Plaintiff”), and any taxes. Information about how Settlement Class Members can obtain Discount Coupons is contained on this website.

Attorneys for the Named Plaintiff (“Lead Class Counsel”) state that they have incurred in excess of $425,000 in attorney’s fees, costs and expenses. They have agreed to limit their request for fees, costs and expenses, which must be approved by the Court, to $296,000. Lead Class Counsel for the Named Plaintiff also intends to ask the Court to award the Named Plaintiff $1,000 as an award for his time spent on the lawsuit. Those amounts, if approved by the Court, will be paid by BevMo and will not reduce the amount of relief available to class members.

The Notice (accessible on this website by clicking the “Notice” button on the sidebar) summarizes the proposed Settlement. For the precise terms and conditions of the settlement, please see the Settlement Agreement available on this website on the “Court Documents” page.


DO NOTHING AND RECEIVE BENEFIT If the Court orders payments to Settlement Class Members, and if BevMo’s computer records show you are a Settlement Class Member, BevMo will automatically email you one (1) one-dollar Discount Coupon for each two-bottle set of wine you purchased pursuant to a 5 Cent Sale from October 21, 2005 through February 9, 2010. BevMo will use the email address it has on file for you.

You will also give up your right to be part of any other lawsuit against BevMo about the claims in this case.

JULY 27, 2015
If you are a Settlement Class Member and you believe your email address in BevMo’s database is out of date or incorrect, you must update your email address no later than July 27, 2015 to receive one or more Discount Coupons. You can update your contact information at or by calling 1-877-77BEVMO during BevMo’s business hours.
JUNE 27, 2015
Submit a written objection explaining why you do not like the Settlement and think it should not be approved. You must send your objection to Lead Class Counsel by mail or email so that it is received by Lead Class Counsel no later than June 27, 2015 (if mailed, it must be postmarked no later than June 22, 2015), who will then file it with the Court for you. If you submit an objection, you may also speak at the Court’s Final Approval Hearing to explain your position. You are not required to attend the hearing, though. The Final Approval Hearing will take place on July 27, 2015 at 9:00 a.m..
EXCLUDE YOURSELF NO LATER THAN JULY 13, 2015 Get no payment in the form of one or more Discount Coupons. This is the only option that allows you to be a part of any other lawsuit against BevMo about the legal claims in this case.

These rights and options are explained in more detail in the Notice and on this website.

The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Discount Coupons will be provided to eligible Class Members if the Court approves the Settlement and after appeals are resolved, if any. Please be patient.

A settlement approval hearing (the “Final Approval Hearing”) will be held before the Honorable Curtis E. A. Karnow, Judge of the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Francisco, 400 McAllister Street, Department 304, San Francisco, California on July 27, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time to determine: (1) whether the proposed settlement of the Action on the terms and conditions provided for in the Settlement Agreement is fair, reasonable, adequate, and in the best interests of the Settlement Class pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1781 and California Rules of Court, Rule 3.769, and should be approved by the Court; (2) whether a Judgment as provided for in the Settlement Agreement should be entered; (3) whether to award Lead Class Counsel their requested attorneys’ fees and reimbursement of expenses; and (4) whether to award the Named Plaintiff his requested incentive payment. The Court may continue or adjourn the Final Approval Hearing without further notice. Monitor this website for any updated information on the hearing date and time.

IRS Scam – Worth Reading – Report Incidents – Audio of Calls – USTreasury #irsscam

IRS Scam-Long but Worth Reading and Sharing

The IRS is warning people about a phone and e-mail scams. Victims are told they owe money to the IRS and it must be paid promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the victim refuses to cooperate, they are then threatened with arrest, deportation or suspension of a business or driver’s license. In many cases, the caller becomes hostile and insulting. The IRS does not ask for PIN or credit card numbers over the phone, nor requests pre-paid debit cards or wire transfers and they don’t initiate contact by e-mail, text or social media. If someone unexpectedly calls or you receive an e-mail  claiming to be from the IRS and threatens police arrest, deportation or license revocation if you don’t pay immediately, that is a sign that it really isn’t the IRS calling.

Be careful! Lots of #IRSscam during #TaxSeason.  #scamAlert. #IRS:  If A Caller Says, ‘I Am With The IRS,’ He’s Not.

This poor lady was not that lucky

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) was established under the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 to provide independent oversight of IRS activities. TIGTA promotes the economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration of the internal revenue laws. It is also committed to the prevention and detection of fraud, waste, and abuse within the IRS and related entities.

Call 1:

Call 2:

Call #3:
On April 6, 2015, another call from yet a different number trying to pull this scam on us.

Here’s the transcript:
Foresee that can do to buy you a stranger. We have been sending you a serious interest in going this will be an intentional second attempt to avoid initial appearance for my just we charge for the Grand Jury four federal criminal. Offense number is (828) 528-2690. I repeat (285) 282-6952 to call please thank you.

Other characteristics of this scam include:

  • Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.
  • Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security Number.
  • Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling.
  • Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.
  • Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.
  • After threatening victims with jail time or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.


If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at 1.800.366.4484. More information is available on the genuine IRS website,

If you would like to report online, use this website.
