Re: [xmca] Re: [Mind Culture Activity] Andy Blunden changed the group description

Hi Dear All,
Andy, I am the one of those two who just joined the Facebook because I've got scared that xmca will migrate and I will be disconnected.  And I couldn't read the messages from the Facebook unless I join.
I would like xmca to continue in the way is always been there (here) for me and for my students.  And, similar to Mike, I have no experience with the Facebook stuff so I am not very sure what and why I am doing there.  Perhaps, my hesitation comes from the lack of experience.

Well Mike, you managed to make this comment simultaneously on FaceBook 
and xmca. Well done. That's a first. And as a result 2 xmca-ers have 
just joined the FaceBook group.

What you did is something someone can do if they choose to comment on 
FaceBook via email (which personally I don't) and send it to two 
destinations at the same time. Maybe Bruce could automate that, but I  
really don't see any value, in general, in duplicating the 
sometimes-intense discussions on xmca to a little FaceBook page, unless 
it is specifically about FaceBook,.

But I too, would like to know what others think.
