Air Force One in the house! Uptown Oakland was rolled through on by the Presidential motorcade. BART riders were aflutter with Obama sighting news as President Obama spoke at the Fox Theater. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan’s facebook page shared photos like a groupie would post of their favorite band after a Coachella concert. The President is a rock star.

Social Media for Small Business 2012 Presented by Oakland Digital ODALC
8:30am, Wed., July 25th, 2012 at Oakland City Hall, Council Chambers
SMfSB is Oakland Digital’s one day, five-hour event that serves as a neutral educational and learning platform for local small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs. SMfSB breaks social media down into easy-to-understand pieces, so attendees can make sense of and utilize digital tools and technology as a platform to grow their business.
MC Hammer, the Oakland rapper / dancer / preacher / entrepreneur, is making a special appearance, speaking about the power of social and Oakland Digital’s work to help transform Oakland into an area that flourishes through technology, innovation and collaboration among diverse community members.
Tech experts from Google, Yelp, Constant Contact, Wix.com, Jimdo, GoPago and Oakland Digital will be there to host educational sessions on digital tools for small businesses!
I was in attendance last year, it inspired and taught a lot about the small business mindset and the roadblocks to social media even though social media is plastered on all sorts of media much like going green and green washing. It’s simply a mindset, learn what that’s about at this event by Oakland Digital! Register before capacity is reached: http://oaksocialmedia.eventbrite.com/
Get there by bicycle, or take BART 12th St Oakland City Center!
