Social Media Sig

We should probably get our social media sig going so that the data needed
for events is posted. I"d like to start getting that out to the group,
Alex, etc... who are taking care of the SIG... the posting to Facebook,
Twitter, etc...

I just saw this while looking for some other info in my email.
And i forgot about this, so let's work together to get the public events
posted and out there.

Now, it was decided we'd try the Meet UP for 6 months, and then evaluate
the status. So, I approve the purchase of 6 months of Meet Up. We will have
a lot of upcoming Public events to advertise through that means.

Howard, I believe you were taking care of the Meeting up....
Let me help you by sending you the data needed, Alex, you too,
and don't purchase the Meet Up access until we have our first event info
ready to be posted to Meet UP and Twitter, etc.

We work together. And six months should take us almost to May.

Give me a bit to get that data out to you.

Thank you Social Media SIG members.
And thanks to those who voted we try it for 6 months.

Good friends are like stars. You don't always
