Today, we’re going to do the first in what will hopefully be a regular Friday afternoon coffee break. At 2pm Central, come join us for a Google+ Hangout to talk about technology, productivity, and blogging with me, Ernie Svenson, Adriana Linares, and anyone else who drops by. We can only have 10 people on video at once, but any number of people can stop by to watch and comment.
Grab some coffee and fire up your webcam if you want to be seen, or stop in to watch and chat anyway if you don’t want to show your face.
And, that’s a wrap! Thanks for those who dropped by, and if you weren’t able to get into the Hangout, come again next week!
We talked a lot about the Google+ Hangout itself, since most of us were trying it for the first time. Not everything about it is intuitive or obvious, such as how people who responded to our initial invite are supposed to find the Hangout once it has started. But most people who RSVP’d found it, in the end. I will see if I can figure out how to make things go more smoothly next time.
The idea, by the way, is not for anyone to do a formal presentation. This is not a webinar. It’s more like a coffee break — or maybe office hours. If you would like to chat with people you know from the Internet, drop by next Friday. Bring questions, ideas, or share what you are doing with technology in your practice.
If you want to get an invite to our next hangout, join our SoloSmallTech community on Google+, or just stay tuned. I will remind you of the next one early next week (hint: it will be 2pm Central on Friday).
