    #1 Dear @CityVP Manjit, I'm touched by your kind message. I believe that Frank Zappa is a point of accumulation of interests of many and diverse persons, each with his or her journey of experience and discovery. When I launched the PoZ group I would have never hoped to attract so large a number of persons interested in the conceptual universe created by Zappa.; A nice surprise, which paradoxically seems to negate Zappa's vision of a Dumb All Over humanity.

    Impressive Vincenzo. I don't remember a time before where I read something on LinkedIn that took me to Facebook, usually it is people suggesting that things that do not belong on LinkedIn should be done on Facebook. I can see from your Philosophy of Zappa group https://www.facebook.com/groups/832016046873449/ that this is not at all the kind of people I would ever have expected to congregate at Facebook. in mass. Having 2000+ members in your group is impressive enough - but being that nearly all of them are smarter at magntitudes several leagues above those who comment on Linkedin this is quite a feat, You have brought your passion for Zappa alive - and I learned much about Zappa I did not know before.
