      Hello SVMUG and SMUG members,

      I have forwarded to you the latest from O'Reilly, shown below. Notice that we have a couple of Bay Area events -- the Petaluma Mac Faire, and the Geek Bike Ride. I would love to go to the World Maker Faire, but alas it is in New York. The Faire grounds are in Flushing Meadow, which was the site of the 1964 World's Faire, which I attended. Will Maker Fairs become the new World event?

      Are you a visual learner who wants to create web pages? Perhaps
      you're a graphic designer who would like to move beyond Photoshop
      comps and roll your own, but haven't found material that's approachable.
      Request a copy of Head First HTML and CSS, 2nd Edition. It's a
      brain-friendly guide chocked full of visual cues and humor that livens
      things up and engages the reader.
