some of you are unhappy with my support for and posting about Google+
i'll try and cut back on it some.
for those who don't know, i've been mucking with computers for over 45 years,
and have had a good livelihood working with them for the last 30 years.
i know many people who work at Google, and elsewhere.
i was also a key early player in the free software movement,
which gave the world many things, including Linux, BSD Unix as it is today (the foundation of MacOS X),
Wikipedia, among others.
and was/is a major influence on the creation of the WWW by Sir Tim and the Do No Evil philosophy of Google, among others
i posted this on my farceborg(facebook) wall a few hours ago,
except they forced me to turn it into a note.
from here on out,
i'll just be checking in there every few days for their stunted form of email
known as fb messages
moving on from farceborg

as the next step in moving over to Google+, I will be cutting back on my 'Like'ing and commenting on the news here on farceborg, a lot.
G+ has a small learning curve, but is just better, and it's still being developed.
the last 11 days over there, has been some of the best i've had on my 40+ years on the Internet and it's predecessor, the ARPAnet. Partly, because everyday, the software/web_sight was improved, and the community blossomed.
i'll keep you all posted, unless the Zukerborg and his farceborgs can my account, +/or delete these posts.
Hope to see many of you on the Gside -len
ps: farceborg just told me this has to be a note, not a wall post. G+ doesn't care.
thanx fb for another fist in my face
back to your usual sboxing now ; - }
