I am the farthest thing in the world from technophobic; if I were, I would never have found the List ;)? As Marcin says, to each their own.? Facebook is a useful tool, but it is one which I do not choose to use, simply because setting it up and maintaining it could easily become a huge time drain.? I don't own a smartphone, a quality still/video camera, or an iPad either, although those things are available to me.? I'd rather spend the time and money on other things, including meteorites.
