Salut Jean-Christophe,

  In answer to your email - I am quite aware that F Minor has a 'Facebook' account, I read Mary Jo's email carefully just like I reckon all of the members of F Minor did when the old list left Rutgers. This whole flap came about over the problem some of us have had sending in attachments. Suddenly someone sent in a photo attachment which had never been done before, hyperlinks were sent in all the time to the Rutgers F Minor but no photo attachments whatsoever although people were itching to do it. The whole 'facebook' thing came up because I'm a member of F Minor who wants nothing to do with facebook and I said so. Pat Zumst said so too. Merkin said so too. Another thing, a simple Google search on someone is a far cry from what a facebook account is when it comes to privacy. There's precious little left and even less silence anymore. I've always liked F minor because of the written format and the diverse people who come to it to write.

Sorry to keep this off-topic thread going but I cannot resist.
To the Facebook opponents: please bear in mind that all you write on F_minor is public and can be found by a simple Google search (try searching your name + Gould and you'll find your posts) and is therefore not protected at all. So try to be coherent when talking about privacy risks. And please avoid mentioning Evil for such petty things as choosing a file-sharing tool for discussions about Glenn Gould. The world is not as manichean as a Godzilla movie or a GW Bush address!

As for the forum proposal, I quite agree it would be nice.
PS. Strange no one noticed the F-word (Facebook) on Mary-Jo's e-mail on May 14 about the new F_Minor... As we all know, the devil is in the details!
Here it is: 
As you may have noticed, f_minor was out of commission for a couple of months while Karl and I transitioned it from it's long-time home at Rutgers to glenngould.org.  (Thanks Karl!! you're a lifesaver!) The main difference is the email address you'll use to correspond with everyone but there are a few other bits of information you should know.

All the information that follows is available at http://www.glenngould.org/
