facebook for tops
« on: October 18, 2009, 01:23:45 PM »

I'm not sure who all is on facebook, but I found a group (a very small group) for spintops.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2372062654&ref=search&sid=5211405.3817466921..1

but it had a few nice links that I thought I'd share

http://folk.uio.no/knuthe/top/snurre.html
http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/top.html

One of the sub-links is for the worlds largest top

yo !! the real big top has been around for over 8 years !!

face-book sucks !
the concept of face book sux too
the people making money on your posts on F B suck as well

you can't even check facebook if you don't have a facebook account
(contrary to you tube)


stay away ... even for promotion it' s  a pain in the ...neck

c'est mon avis et je le partage  :D

WOW, Jim - you really don't like Facebook!  I have some frustrations with it as well, so I just use it to find and keep in touch with old and new friends.  I hadn't seen the giant top before -but I'm the Encino Man of Skill Toys - I've been frozen for 10 years and am still finding new-to-me stuff all the time.

Thanks for the link, physboy!

Very passionate Jim!  Thanks Aaron for the link.  I've been going cold turkey on Facebook!  To think all those years ago I started because my wife wanted to have it say "In a Relationship"

I LOVE facebook!!!  It's how I keep in touch w/all of my old kids from the school. It's why I joined in the first place, around four years ago.  I've joined a few spin-top groups on facebook but I don't remember seeing that one.  W/out facebook I wouldn't be in contact w/Daveid since he's not posting on the forum these days......So you see Jim, it's not all bad.   :P  ;)

I think that if one wants an internet presence it is much better to invest the time in developing a website. If you own your domain name you are literally the ruler of your domain! You can change formats, hosting companies, etc. etc., without limitation, and websites are here to stay for good. Social networking sites fulfill a purpose, but they depend on commercial interests that change with time (yesterday is myspace, today facebook, tomorrow ?), there are many things you cannot control and they collect tons of information about you (all your friends, the friends of your friends . . .)

I agree with Jim that not being able to look at a facebook page without registering even if the owner of the page invites you, is a big bummer. I had to register because of that (but I cheated and use the name Tao McSpin: it didn't let me use the character zero on the name >:( ) Having said that, why don't you invite me, Spin Queen?  ;)

Thanks Queen for making me your friend! :P First thing I noticed when I went to your account is that you posted on a "Tops Suck" wall! Fortunately, you put them straight by linking to one of the Academy vids.
