Hey guys...I know this is extremely short notice but is there a Google employee that would be willing/available for a brief Hangout with a High School ESE class that is incredibly interested in Google, your history, how search works. It would be at around 1:15PM ET and only for a few minutes (maybe 15 or so.) Please let me know. Thanks!

Of course, you might share your cool things both here and on #Twitter  - very easily and without any extra action - using http://friendsplus.me for example. If cross-posting is positive or not is, of course, another discussion.

Thank you Jerry, I made a copy for my files in case we go 1:1 with iPads. We held off doing student Apple ID's in our 1:1 classrooms because of all of the issues. I was trying to purchase iBooks through VPP, we held off for now. Using other options.
