Hi All,

presence in Social Media. Although I do have some placeholders, I don't 
take advantage of them as I should. I rarely check into Social Media 
sites. I think that the position taken by Jeff Willens is a good one. A 
Facebook page or group should link back to this listserv which would, 
besides everything Jeff said, archive any data that came from the 
Facebook presence.

Yes, I'm the same guy who ranted about data mining. However, data mining 
reaches far beyond Social Media.
