Fabulous record of Dublin taken by a photographer who came from Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan, and which has now found it's way onto the Google Cultural Institute.

This will be brilliant for Hangouts on Air! Especially for schools and universities who use Hangouts on Air to connect with hundreds of students at a time. 
 
Live Q&A for Hangouts On Air: interact with all your viewers

With Hangouts On Air, you can take a group video call and broadcast it to the world. And we've seen everything from concerts to political debates to online classes share their conversations 'On Air.' What's been missing, however, is a way to interact with your live audience (vs. only the people onscreen). Not any more.

Today we're introducing Live Q&A for Hangouts On Air — the first of many features to help you engage with your viewers. If you’re hosting the broadcast, you'll now be able to:

- Solicit questions from up to a million concurrent viewers
- Select and answer questions live
- Timestamp the YouTube recording by marking questions as you answer them

If instead you're watching the Hangout On Air, you'll now be able to ask and vote on questions live, as well as replay the Q&A even after the broadcast is over.

We're rolling out Live Q&A over the next few days (fully on desktop, view-only on Android), so look for the new features the next time you start or watch a Hangout On Air. In the meantime, you can check out these examples to see how Live Q&A can enhance your broadcasts:

- Art and Inquiry by +MoMA Edu: http://goo.gl/hLohOv
- Live Car Talk by +Scotty Kilmer: http://goo.gl/cMZtz4
- Sony vs. Nikon by +Trey Ratcliff: http://goo.gl/4xEFXW

Keep the feedback coming, and keep those broadcasts going!

How will you use it??

We'll use it to host sessions for the 60k+ young people and teachers we are supporting in their employability journey in Kent.

Crazy excited about this feature!!

Cormac helped us move on November 1st 2012, and it was the best choice we could have made! For previous house moves we had rented our own van, but VanTasks was not only so much less hassle, it also worked out cheaper than renting a van for a few days! The van is also so much bigger than what we would have been able to rent, and Cormac was really helpful and efficient. We moved in less time, and for lower cost than what we had estimated. I would definitely recommend Cormac and VanTasks.

Bewleys makes some of the best coffee in Dublin! Always go upstairs for coffee though,not into the main restaurant area. They make a great carrot cake too :)

Lovely restaurant with authentic French dishes, but far too expensive to justify!!

Go to the cafe, not the restaurant; the menus are equally amazing, but Roly's Cafe has amazing prices. Loved the tapas desserts :) Will be going here as often as my diet allows :)
