Thanks for your thoughts about Facebook.
I think we need to be mindful of our audience. FB is many of the
things you said but it's also more than that. It is familiar to many
in the region and they are already visiting it regularly for friend
updates so if a permaculture update gets in their newsfeed - great.
I say use whatever tools are available to share the information and
spread the love.
Some of my Khmer colleagues have already been enlisted - very

I just visited the group and made you an owner and Felicity a manager
with option to become owner later.

State on FB that your other resources are the primary sites for your
se asia work and provide all necessary links to them, i.e. the group,
blog, site, Google Docs, Picasa gallery, Google+ page and circle(s);
all integrated. Post to the group and attach material you have stored
Google Docs or elsewhere on the web or upload from your computer.
Facebook is not worth my time; it is a trivial, transient, useless
resource, only good for casual activity. Good to chat with friends
is a total loss as far as any serious archival and exchange of
information is concerned. It is a closed system, no search and
with Google. A Facebook group is worthless in my opinion. Google
resources are another matter.
Why don't you all get Google+ accounts so we can have a pcseasia
circle and a separate pcseasia Google+ page. It would be a bit of
to set this up but I am willing to do it.

Get your friends subscribed to the Group pcseasia then use that to
announcements and host discussion. I can create a Google Site to
documents and images of all sorts for use by the group members, a
gallery for images and videos, a blog to use as a journal to document
group activities. All these things work very well and are light years
beyond FB in the features department. The editor for groups, blog and
email posts offered by Google is without peer. Blog posts can be
have experimented with all these things for years and am convinced
they are superior in all respects to competing resources. Forget the
called "social network" thing and get on with sharing information and
announcing events and news. The default is social networking.

Use the group as the primary resources for information sharing, news
announcements. I can't emphasize that too much That was Google can
index all of it so people searching can find it.

This is good.
