Hanging out in a Google+ Hangout

Tim Owens puts out a call for people to Hangout with him!

On July 16th I joined Giulia Forsythe, Ben Rimes, Jason Green, Zach Dowell, Bryan Jackson and Jim Groom in a friendly discussion lead by Tim Owens about Google+ using it’s Hangout feature. The new features of Google+ were discussed and how they could be used in an educational/storytelling context. Interesting stuff.

Unfortunately, I had technical problems (Hangout and the Google Talk browser-plugin with Firefox/Chrome/Safari browsers) so I arrived 1 hour late. I managed to catch the Hangout in limited sound-only fashion via Windows running on VMware Fusion. VMware Fusion had problems accessing my inbuilt iSight web-cam.

Looking forward to further friendly discussions in a Hangout!

This video is derived from the Exploring Google+ Hangouts which appears in a slightly longer unedited form on Timmmmyboy’s YouTube Channel.

I had problems connecting to the Hangout, so I attempted to communicate with my Circle via comments to the Hangout request. I was eventually able to Hangout!
