My pleasure. Enjoy!

Oh, I'll definitely be making use of social media, as a tool for promotion and recognition. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and that sort of thing. There's a difference between that and being personally involved with those resources, though. I'll start posting video clips and stuff when I feel my delivery is clean enough to record a few. I'm still working on that.
I might get more involved with it when I can leave the network engineering job behind. Right now, between the 9-5 job and my side-projects, I don't have the time to get involved with Facebook. It would be something to do while traveling the country, between gigs. Having that freedom would change a few things.
I'd probably do a lot of what you do, in that kind of situation. I poke around the edges. When in doubt, go Socratic on them. Ask questions ... lots of questions. Expose how everything they say is just a bunch of bald assertions, and if you think into it even a bit, it just falls to pieces.
I just haven't got the free time right now. I'm a bit obsessive-compulsive, so I sink into things like that, if I don't cut myself off completely. In a forum as vast as Facebook, I'd totally submerge myself and never get out of my day job.
