A Russian and a German on an American radio broadcast. Sounds like the beginning of a [bad?] joke. Well, tonight 6pm I am going to be on Olga's show. http://www.u923fm.com/  You can also tune in on Ustream http://www.ustream.tv/channel/olga-show We will talk about SAP Mentors, Alive Schools, Future Salon and Russian/German/American relations. I may play a song or two on my guitar too. If I am brave.

We like the Google HangOut On Air functionality that is live streaming and recording to YouTube. We would like to use it for the upcoming Future Salon with David Brin this Wednesday.

We would like to provide the best interactive experience for our remote participants. It is a deal breaker if they can't chat with each other as well as with the folks in the HangOut. The Q&A module is not cutting it, that only allows +1, but not real interaction. 

Back to Adobe Connect for us, unless there is another module.

+Craig Cmehil and I got pulled on the SAP TechEd live stage in Bangalore, they wanted to tape us talking about the changes coming with SAP d-code. We did one take and I thought it was much to 'salesy', but the folks behind the camera were happy with it. At first I didn't even want to watch it, not to relive it, but then a colleague told me that he really liked it. So I checked it out and I must say excellent editing job. Nina, my 7 year old daughter, watched it with me a couple of times and said: Craig is like a rapper.  That's how good the editing is. Thanks Jason, Idit, Brian or whoever wizardry it was. Can't wait to see you all at SAP d-code.
