SHOW AND TELL tonight 9:30pm ET! Using Google+ Hangouts On Air!
The weekly show-and-tell is tonight at 9:30pm ET. A special New Year’s eve one too! We’ll see who shows up!
NEW INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO BE ON THE SHOW AND TELL. If you are on Google+ and want to join, post a message/comment on Limor’s post on Google+ and say you want to show off a project and she will add you the “Show and Tell” circle. Then just look for the hangout announcement on the very same page later for your invite. There’s an 8 to 10 (at the same time) people limit per hangout, so if it’s full try later or just pop by next week same time. Some weeks are packed!
At 9:30pm ET you will see a link to the hang out. Just keep your mics muted until we call on you and have your project ready.
Google is allowing some accounts to broadcast and record – Ladyada is trying this out, with your help 🙂
Previously we broadcasted the hangouts on Google to Ustream using their Producer tool to capture the hangout. We’re still using Ustream for “ASK AN ENGINEER”.
So if anything goes wrong, it’s all very new, but that’s also part of the fun 🙂
SEE you soon!

I’m not trying to be negative here but do we have any reason to think the broadcast will work tonight? I’m just curious if you’ve been testing it this week or if there have been some changes we haven’t heard about?
hi bennett, last week even when one of the hangout members was dropped (us) – it still worked out and it was recorded. this is beta, we’re experimenting – it’s part of the fun living in 2011 (and soon 2012) 🙂
