Energy efficiency and renewables are not the only or even a sufficient approach to reducing CO2: "Grazing large herds of livestock on half of the world's barren or semi-barren grasslands could also take enough carbon from the atmosphere to bring us back to preindustrial levels"
Hi - I just dropped in because I have an audio question and hope one of you experts can help. It seems like it ought to be simple. I want to record a hangout phone call happening on my iPad 4 while I'm wearing earbuds. Is there an app that will do that, including Garageband? I know little about this so speak slowly and clearly, please.
Hi, I hope this is not OT here. I want to find a reliable VA to record 21 sessions of an online class (Hangouts on Air) from Youtube (or download the recording from Youtube) (3 a week 1- 1.5 hours each) in Screencast (just because that's what I use), do a rough edit (trim the ends and major boo-boos), upload the result to my EVS account, then embed that in my member area, and separate the audio and upload that to my member area. Do you know someone you would recommend? Thanks.
I have a question. Using an iPad to do a hangout, is there an app that will record the audio portion? I have "Supernote" which is great for live recording but it ends the hangout when I try to use it at the same time. This is all legal and aboveboard, just need the audio to work from later. Suggestions?
+Daimon Sweeney how about just using headphones during the hangout (so that only you can hear the voice from your clients) and then have in front of you a digital recorder (not an app, just a separate small digital recorder= just to get your voice. Just make sure you are doing the session in a quiet space, which you want to do anyways. I do lots of recordings (classes, lectures, etc.) with my phone while using my ipad for pictures and note taking.
Here's what I'm trying to do and cannot yet figure out. I hope someone here can help. I am preparing to offer an online course and want to conduct it with HOAs as the communication channel.
I don't want the participants to have to go through technology hoops like getting inside G+. Many of them find this an impossible hurdle.
My HOAs can be obscured through deleting G+ notifications. That's good enough (unless I'm missing something).
I also want a private community for the duration of the class and probably from then on. For ease and familiarity I am looking at having a Facebook community on a "secret" page. A secret page is invisible to anyone unless invited. Membership and comments are invisible as well.
Ideally I want to have the HOA stream on the Facebook Page to focus community attention and interaction there through Facebook comments (visible only on this exact page).
I'm looking at 22s, a Facebook app which supposedly will do this, but have a problem at the moment with doing it on a secret page. Tech support is looking at it.
Here's the question: Do you have any other suggestions for ways to run the HOAs privately and with good, linked, ongoing commenting over a period of weeks or months? Thanks for any ideas.
I do want a few people on the hangout with me, so talking with +Ronnie Bincer today (thanks - very useful in confirming, clarifying, sorting thoughts, priorities and possibilities, including new ones) I had another duh moment. Those can be people already in g+ so I don't have to deal with that barrier.
This is simplifying. That's what I need. Thanks, everyone.
I would like to know how to do a private HOA open only to an invited circle. It would be posted on my website (hence it needs the embed code) and behind a password there. I understand I have to delete the post to my G+ profile announcing the HOA to prevent random people from joining it. I have also been told I have to change my YouTube Live setting to hide it. I don't yet have YTLive permission (no followers yet - brand new) so can I hide it anyway? Or do I need YTLive to hide the broadcast? And if I do have YTLive what do I do?
I'm fascinated by understanding how we construct our personal and shared realities, our lives and society. How much is biology? How much is programmed assimilation? How much is choice?
If we understand how all this works, can we deconstruct what we don't like and build what we do like? I am convinced the answer to this is "yes."
I work with models and methods to do those things. On the personal level, the approach I created (on the shoulders of others) is called Settings Work.
On the social and organizational level I have a model of innovation that relies on insights into how collective intelligence works.
One child, a daughter well-launched in the world (whew!). Survived childhood and early life with a drive to understand things more clearly, with significant success in that. I have puns under control as a public service. Created the Settings Model. Still healthy after all these years.
