Re: [movement-72] Greetings, and how do you feel about Meetup, Facebook?

Hello Naomi:

The Seasteading community may not wish to limit itself to one social networking platform, especially when so many of them can be linked together fairly easily.? Yes, you can anchor many things to Facebook, and connect the meetup announcements to Facebook events and accounts, but one of the things I really like about Drupal as a platform (and wikis) is that, as open source projects, they can be adapted to serve as a foundation for a social network specifically dedicated to Seasteading (and controlled exclusively by TSI), rather than one page among millions of other special interest pages dependent upon a third party vendor/platform that is under the control of someone else.? Witness the most recent uproar over Facebook's latest change to its privacy policy as an example of what we don't want to happen to Seasteading.

It's also a lot of work to coordinate communication among multiple networks, but if you want to recruit volunteers to manage this, you might get more people involved and excited to participate (e.g., assign one person to administer the Meetup account, another person to handle Facebook, another to administer a MySpace page or a Hi5 fan community, etc.).

I know this probably sounds like I'm on the fence about it, but these are just some ideas provoked by your suggestion.? Perhaps we should discuss it at the next Meetup :-).

Hi everybody,

As the Seasteading Institute's new Development Manager, I just wanted to quickly introduce myself -- Hello! -- as I'll be helping to coordinate the Seasteading Socials from here on in.

AND... we've been talking about moving coordination all over to Facebook, from the Bay Area Seasteading Meetups Page:

But it depends: how do you all feel about Meetup? Would you be willing to switch over to the Facebook Page? Should we keep posting in both places?

It would be nice to keep the Seasteading Socials community focused in one place, and one advantage of Facebook is more fluid inclusion of photos, links, and discussions.

Let us know your thoughts!
