Last Sunday Jon Reed @jonerp and I with a couple of friends gave G+ HangOut another try, but even with the Q&A module it fell short. You are not able to chat with anyone that isn't in the HangOut, which has a limit of 10 participants.
That's just not enough interactivity for our taste. Back to the good and tested Adobe/SAP connect:
We will stream starting 6:30pm PST. If you can't be there in person, join us remotely. Crossing fingers that everything works out.
