ETGEC-C Facebook Page
The Facebook page is a common forum for the partners to dialog. Anyone can participate in the Facebook dialog. As this is a Facebook fan page it is not connected to one's personal Facebook account in the same way one's friends are connected. Thus, one's personal postings do not go to the ETGEC-C page. Current Facebook entries by administrators are automatically shown on the web page. Anyone can participate in the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ETGECC

Virtual World - Weekly Discussion on Aging
There is a weekly discussion about the current blog topic. The discussion occurs in real time in a virtual world. The virtual world is called Second Life®. Directions are found in two tabs (Discussion and SL) found at http://rodgermarion.com. Beginning January 2015, the Weekly Discussion on Aging will be held at Noon, CST, prior to the Science Friday events at the SL UTMB island.
The discussion is held using text chat. Second Life supports voice but it tends to have technical issues. The use of text chat also provides for a convenient transcript which is posted in the Comments section of the corresponding blog.
