Web and Social Media Presence

Because Dim Sum Labs are run by members voluntarily, we don’t have a centralized “marketing” department to handle all our web presence. Thanks to our member’s efforts over the years, we have amassed quite a bit of presence on the web, on various platforms.

Unfortunately, credentials used to access those presence are often lost, and current members aren’t able to update those presence. Worse, we’ve had accounts hacked and turned into something else (see Facebook below). In any case, it is still worth having a place to list these historical artifacts, so we can use them to piece together the history of Dim Sum Labs.

With the icons listed in the widgets, we’ll only include links that current members can control . For everything else, see below:
