Facebook Posts
An attempt to catalog my Facebook Posts until when and if I use the ideas in formal essays and columns20-Jan-2018
Updated: 15-Jul-2018

I’m Bob. Frankston on Facebook. Note that I usually post publicly, so there isn’t a strong need to friend me. So, I apologize in advance for my backlog of requests I haven’t responded to. Typically, nothing personal – just one more thing to think about.

It’s easier to post simple thoughts on Facebook than to create a formal posting. Eventually, I hope to consolidate these thoughts into formal essays. In the meantime, I’m providing a list of Facebook posts that might be of interest to others. Please forgive the typos and consider them mulls-in-progress.

Facebook does have the advantage of providing an opportunity for a conversation – something I haven’t implemented on my site.

I’ve done very little posting on Quora but plan to list any new postings here.

I’ll attempt to list these in reverse chronological order and, at times, any summary may be longer than the original post. I’m going to try to use * or † for posts I do want to follow up on in a longer essay or a column.

No promises about getting this organized but I’ll try.

    • Hard to write managed extensions

  • Failure to embrace the metaphor
    • OneDrive online
    • OneNote tec.
  • Perhaps for file system extensions

#Fails

I'm going to start to use the tag #Fail for some posts. Partially to avoid having too many marked #gripe but also to be about more specific encounters.

Software, Programming and Disconnectivity

To a degree the concepts behind software pervade my writings so this isn’t a distinct category, but I’ll attempt to group some of the appropriate writings here.

The DNS (Domain Name System)

Telecom Legacy

Programming and Software

Home Control

CES 2018

Politics

A lot is politics, so I may not always list here.

Groups

Real History of Online
