Here Come the Google Hangout Innovators

Pt 101314-3-1-1

Here Come the Google Hangout Innovators @ PCWorld Business Center.

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…

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?

Next show and tell is Sat night 9:30pm 8/6/2011!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord
