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…

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.

What is the price of indecision? What is the cost of delay?
