In eigener Sache: Meine Kandidatur für die AIIC-Präsidentschaft
"I want all members to enjoy the respect, the trust and the loyalty they deserve as professionals.
I want us to push for a more democratic and inclusive way of working together.
First and foremost, I want to get AIIC back on track.
What I want to achieve for AIIC
The main objective of any professional association is to improve market opportunities and working conditions for its members.
A necessary first step is to improve the image and enhance the visibility of conference interpreting as a profession. By doing so, AIIC members will be in a better position to differentiate themselves from the competition..."

The advantages of remote interpreting 

Get an impression of remote conference interpreting of a web-based conference call in real life. Watch this video!

And now seriously. Will remote solutions help us work better, and possibly make our lives easier by reducing travel stress? Or will the spread of remote interpreting spell the end of our profession as we know it? Don't miss our last blog post, a conversation with Thomas Binder, chair of the Technical and Health Committee, about remote interpreting and new technologies:

Bye bye TeamViewer...
Neue App: Via Hangout auf andere Computer zugreifen

Super Update: Gestern stellte Googler +Daniel Caiafa eine neu App für die Hangouts vor. Mit "Remote Desktop" könnt ihr ab sofort auf die Computer anderer Teilnehmer zugreifen und ihnen dort z.B. bei technischen Problemen direkt weiterhelfen. (Meine Mutter wird sich freuen ;))

Um die App zu installieren, starte ein Hangout und wähle rechts in der Leiste über die drei Punkte die Option "Apps hinzufügen" aus. Direkt als erstes sollte "Remote Desktop" angezeigt werden. Installiert sie und schon könnt ihr anfangen.

Dabei stellt ihr eine Anfrage an Teilnehmer X, dass ihr auf seinen Computer zugreifen möchtet. Erst wenn er die Anfrage akzeptiert, übernehmt ihr die Kontrolle über seinen Rechner.

Ich denke, dass diese App die Hangouts nochmal pushen wird, da man dadurch nicht mehr auf andere Programme von Drittanbietern ausweichen muss.
