I am intrigued by facebook ... I love to ponder the potential for education and world unity from the grass roots ... I am intrigued by what motivates some people to scribe the posts I see and why some people share every personal detail ...

 

I am intrigued by its potential as an enabler for disaster management, social change and community relations ... I would like to understand why facebook facilitates teen bullying so effectively and what creative solutions might turn that into a positive rather than such a destructive force ... I love observing the world (and people) through the facebook lens ... and, I love the great wit and humour shared through the many wall posts ... come explore it all ... comment, follow and add to this site by suggesting posts!
