Whats the traffic situation like in Venice or Long Beach? I'll be getting some tech job (not sure where, yet) and will have a commute, I'm guessing, north.
I don't know if you've been reading the LA Times, but here's a couple of recent articles about the local tech scene that might be of interest.

That's not so true anymore about Ocean Park. I can tell you've been away from LA for awhile.

In any case, Venice has been compared to the East Village quite often and does have more than its share of New Yorkers who seem to feel very comfortable there.

Ocean Park has been considered nice for a long time. But generally speaking south of Pico within Santa Monica city limits is down market in comparison to folks who live north, closer to Wilshire.

SM used to be based on a north/south divide, however theres an east/west divide now as well. The big difference these days is that the north and northwest have more families with kids whereas the southwest has more singles and fewer families.

And Sunset Park (south of Pico, bordering on West LA and Mar Vista) is certainly not more down market than the adjacent Pico Neighborhood (north of Pico, south of the 10, heavily Latino and the cheapest part of SM, and parts of which are on the nasty side).

I really don't know where you are going with all of this. I 'm not even sure we're on the same page. I'm just reponding to the OP's question. Not trying to have a discussion about east/west and north/south divides, etc., etc.
