This may be a new weekly series of posts I’ll try to stay on top of from here on out. Again, they generally have a marketing, small business, startup, web 2.0 sort of focus. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive list including conferences, as I suggested before, check out WebWallflower.
This proves to be a busy week for networking and holiday parties; probably more hectic and activity packed than the remaining weeks of 2009.
