Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Official Facebook Fan Page for AOO

Thanks.  First thing is to remove the "proposed" from the about, now 
that you have other PPMC'ers helping.

Please add me as an admin; I'd like to see how (P)PMCs can best manage 
this kind of resource in other situations, and once my current overload 
of work tails off hope to have more time to contribute.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only "Shane Curcuru" out there.
