Wow, what an awesome set of responses. Thank you VERY much.

There are consistent opinions in many of the responses. So I hope all of you 
will forgive if I respond to my own post here with a new sub-thread, and with 
another blog, as I wanted to keep all of the thoughts together.
In summary, what We think about social media is unimportant. What is important 
is, that is where other people are, so that is where we should be too. I'd be 
interested to know if this second blog entry prompts any re-consideration.

I recognize that this isn't directly a U2 topic. This is more of an industry 
topic, of which U2 users are a part. Increasingly, U2 is becoming less 
associated with the MV industry and more a self-contained industry of its own. 
I don't think that's the right direction. We all lose personally, and "the 
industry" suffers, because there are so few common places where MV/Pick users 
congregate. I'm encouraging people to broaden the horizons rather than 
furthering the contraction. Our scope as more diversified professionals 
shouldn't be limited to any one group, or just to U2 groups in different web 

In this forum in the past, we've discussed the merits of email versus 
browser-based forums, Usenet, Google Groups, etc. The passionate preferences 
expressed for all of these media is exactly the same as that expressed, for or 
against the various social media. I'm suggesting that now the question is not 
just "which forum" but what other media should we consider in addition to 
forums? It's almost the next inevitable question ...

Twitter is OK for some purposes, not others. Same with LinkedIn, etc.
No one medium is good for all purposes.  I think everyone should give proper 
consideration to each venue, individually, on its merits as a tool for 
providing and receiving specific kinds of information.

Your (really really verbose, thankful, and apologetic) colleague  :)
