Good for you Tony!

For the detractors: realize that this is the way of the world now.

Take a look at the software development ecosystems that are thriving today:
JavaScript, Ruby, Python, etc.  Their communities leverage social media to
communicate, organize meetups, solve common problems, and share code.  It
fuels their growth.

I'm saddened by the lack of U2 posts on Stack Overflow:
http://stackoverflow.com/tags/u2

And the lack of open source on GitHub:
https://github.com/search?q=unibasic&ref=commandbar

The longer the U2 ecosystems remains shuttered behind closed doors, the
faster it will get move towards its death.

As far as social networks for individual businesses -- it's cool if you
don't want to use them.  I'm happy to take all your leads. :-)
