re Facebook

Thanks for an interesting episode, FiftyOneFifty. :)

It is great to hear how people gather into communities, and even sort of spontaneous communties, to help out.

Before, I would never have thought of joining facebook, but I did a few weeks ago. Not for general "social" reasons, but mostly having to do with issues related to my health. There are very useful small communities on FB, and it is a very easy way to connect to people. It has meant a lot to me.

There are lots of problems with FB, but as you say, communities are made of people. That a corporation should be the intermediary is not nice, but FB can be a very useful tool.

As long as one doesn't put all one's ("social") eggs in one basket.

Take care
