re/ news & facebook

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been posting to newslog recently. I’ve gotten into a new mode of operating that works better for me, and it involves facebook. I know a lot of people are wary of facebook, but with today’s surveillance technologies, email isn’t any more private than facebook, as regards Big Brother watching you.

These days, when I come across an interesting article, I post its link to my facebook page, and add my comment to it. This is SO much faster than wrapping up a posting and sending it out to our three newslog lists. My ‘friends’ (the facebook equivalent of subscribers) then get an email notification of each posting, with a brief description and a link. My ‘friends’ can add comments to postings on my page, and this sometimes leads to an interesting discussion thread.

This works better for subscribers, as well as for me. And, you can turn off notifications if you like, and just visit my page whenever you want to see the recent postings. 

So, if you want to monitor my ongoing selection of articles, please send a friend request to this page:
