3.  Worth mentioning are two upcoming workshops being presented by ArtsyGeek, an Oakland-based web design studio. We recently sat in on one of their classes on building an e-commerce site, and were impressed by the breadth of valuable information. These workshops seem most relevant for small business entrepreneurs trying to grasp the essentials of online social media tools. An added perk are the drums you can hear in the background from the Occupy Oakland gathering, across the street.
