First ever Google+ New Your City HIRL (Hangout In Real Life)

12 02 2012

Google+ nycHIRL Feb. 5, 2012

First ever Google+ New Your City HIRL (Hangout In Real Life) took place in February 2012 with 70+ friends that meet in a Google+ hangout from around the word.

We gathered in New York City to celebrate our friendships by hanging out in real life.

Matthew Rappaport and Tiffany Henry organized a weekend that built memories that will last a lifetime.

We meet at the G+ HIRL HQ (head quarters) on Thursday night where there were a lot of hugs and kisses. Matthew went live ON AIR with his show Hangout Conversations with special guest Daria Musk and Ram Rich as a pre-show for the concert.

Friday we had a tour of the Google office with some free time to follow.

Friday night we were entertained by three of the most popular recording artist’s on Google+. Heather Fay, Ryan Van Sickle and Daria Musk. The music filled the room with fun and excitement that one can not explain. You’ll have to experience it for yourself however, we hope that by watching this video you’ll feel a piece of what we did.

Saturday we had a photo walk starting by walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, around the city, Ground Zero and ended by Battery Park looking at The Lady, The Statue of Liberty.

And just as fast as it began it ended. The first ever nycHIRL was over. But we did not exit the hangout sad, because we know that all we have to do is log back on and all our friends our close friends will be there.

We hope you enjoy this short video and feel a piece of what we felt.

There are a number of close friend that could not be with us for this event do to various reasons but made a contribution to our experience. I want to highlight one of many. But this man, this illustrator just makes you feel good when your with him in a hangout and I am sure in real life as well. Mike Searle created some artwork as a way to help us promote the event. Thank you Mike. Your work is great and very much appreciated my friend.

Thank you to Ron Jackson for capturing a video via live smart phone live hangout as we visited the Google office. A memory we would not have with out you doing this.

There are so many other friend to many to thank here, but we all know who you are. We hope to meet you in real life sometime very soon as well. And we all thank you for what you do every day.

Please feel free to share this post and video as a way to let others know that Google+ is here to stay. It’s the fastest growing social media network in the word that has so much power and potential you have to experience it for yourself to understand.

So log on, and lets hangout!

Google+ Hangout with Michael Dell

21 08 2011

Today I had the opportunity to hangout with +Michael Dell and a room full of very intelligent well informed people from around the world. Michael is holding an inspirational desk icon that is all about zero’s and one’s. As you can see it’s a zero and when Michael turned it 90 degrees in his hand it becomes a one.

He answered a question in the hangout by sharing a book he wrote with a first edition (February 17, 1999) Strategies That Revolutionized an Industry.
http://www.amazon.com/Direct-Dell-Strategies-Revolutionized-Industry/dp/0887309143

We spoke about tablets, pocket, and how HP is spinning off the PC business.
Very interesting conversation’s, if you ever have the chance to hangout with Michael take the opportunity he is a very down to earth man that takes interest in what you have to say.

Here Come the Google Hangout Innovators

Here Comes the Hangout Innovators http://t.co/f6e799g
Check out who was mentioned in this PCWorld article.

Google Hangouts, the group videoconferencing part of Google+, has attracted some of the most creative minds on the Web – and these folks are putting their ingenuity to good use. One of the first out of the gate is Bruce K. Garber and his friends from the Southern New England Media Makers. They captured this video of their group videoconference by using Camtasia Studio and uploaded this video to Youtube. The sound quality is surprisingly clear considering that they were using the condenser mics built into their webcams. I’m wondering how clear their audio would sound if they each used a USB microphone, such as a USB Logitech headset or a Snowball microphone. Here are the other participants in this video chat.

Next up, check out Drew Jones, who figured out how to stream his Google Hangout live using Ustream.tv and Livestream.com. Drew will be sharing instructions on how to do this in the next few days. Follow him on Twitter at https://twitter.com/#!/realdrewjones or on Google+.

Wherever opportunities for ingenuity exist, Phillip Torrone, senior editor at MAKE Magazine, is not far behind. Check out the Ask an Engineer – Show and Tell Hangout he recently ran. Yes, a little rough around the edges, but ripe with opportunities for sharing ideas at the most grassroots of levels.

Folks, if you’re still watching television, you’ve never left the last century. Put down that remote and pick up your imagination. The imagination train will be leaving the station and it’s best if you were on board. Instead of doing the “channel surf,”you could be establishing your own creative turf. Think carefully about the new world that is a-borning – and your role in it. Are you a leader or are you a follower? What rewards – emotional, social, financial — lie waiting for leaders? What experiences are typically encountered by followers? What ways are there to minimize risk and still be a leader? What collective ways are there to minimize risk and still pursue innovation? What is the price of indecision? What is the cost of delay?

Grateful thanks to Steve Garfield, founder of Boston Media Makers and author of the very useful videoblogging guidebook Get Seen. I met Bruce K. Garber when I virtually attended a Boston Media Makers meeting. Follow Steve Garfield on Twitter (or Google+) to stay in the loop about all media making opportunities and innovations.
