Hey everyone! I'm hosting +Best Buy's #UltimateShowroom  Hangout on Tuesday. Join in as I lead a discussion with people who are much funnier than I am.
Of course you haven’t completed all of your holiday shopping!  That's a given.  But what’s the latest and greatest in techie and electronic gifts? How do you get them and what are our best deals?

Come hang out with a group of passionate, tuned-in (and self-admitted techno-nerd) consumer electronics enthusiasts as they check out the coolest gifts for the holidays.

Join +Caroline McCarthy   -- author, speaker, former CNETer, former CBSer, and former Googler (‘course) as she leads a Hangout focused on plugged-in fun.  Riffing with her are +Austin Evans  (tech reviewer extraordinaire), +Marques Brownlee (MKBHD), +Machinima, +Mark Watson (Soldier Knows Best), Dan Duvalian (Best Buy Blue Shirt guy), and…..+you!  Join the party by asking questions at #UltimateShowroom – and find great gift insight and in-the-know info.

See you Tuesday, December 17that 8 PM EST / 7 PM CST!

Not only did I actually like "The Internship," I think it did a pretty good job of picking up on subtle Google cultural quirks.

I'm writing again! In the wake of the "Princeton Mom" controversy, I had this published on Date Report (most of what I write is on +Quartz, but this didn't have a ton to do with global business news...)
