Thanks +Manu Sporny
These are very similar concepts to ones from an inhouse system I worked on around 1990. Fun stuff! :)

Hi all, this Hangout can now be found here:

https://plus.google.com/events/c1pgdpk3b7qike3qd9kt7b2mmh8

I thought I'd be able to turn on "Hangout on Air" after setting up the Hangout, but I was wrong. I needed to create a new link for this Hangout (above), please use that when the event happens 2-ish hours from now.
