I firmly believe this to be true compared to some other forms of live video, text chat, images and smiley faces ..

Which Google Chrome extensions do I use? Aug 2015 edition In the interest of openness, made these tips public. Hope it helps people see the simplicity and effectiveness of Google Chrome. Remember 99% of all Chrome issues are solved by using an Incognito Window Ctrl+Shift+N

My top three are: Video Speed Controller, Save to Google Drive and Password Alert..

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/video-speed-controller/nffaoalbilbmmfgbnbgppjihopabppdk?hl=en

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/password-alert/noondiphcddnnabmjcihcjfbhfklnnep?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/save-to-google-drive/gmbmikajjgmnabiglmofipeabaddhgne?hl=en

I've more video on Chrome tips at my channel ..

There are three versions of Chrome a user may install on windows:
Normal: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/
Beta: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/beta.html (which I use)
Canary: https://www.google.com/chrome/browser/canary.html
DO NOT install as it's super beta and real wild west stuff ..

This post builds on two recent posts: Social Video using webRTC and Blab.im live video and chat for the Police.

Blab.im have declared they will do Public not Private where Appear.in have said they do Private not Public - this could easily be a match made in heaven (heaven of course being the cloud).

OBS test with Zoom.us 001 This video is not really about hooking up OBS with a Zoom.us video call and other media - it's about what we are going to do with it next to Connect people and go LIVE ..

I am in England, +Larry Fournillier  was in Trinidad - yet we sit in the same video call. Larry could even control my PC if needed. We could play games, comment on the News while screen sharing it.. invite up to 100 people in the video call .. And yes control many screen scene changes at will. This is demo 001 .. 

A super thanks to Lydia from +SquidGame  as a demo slide I made  for her still appears on screen bottom left, find her at: https://www.youtube.com/SquidGame/live .. https://twitter.com/SquidGaming .. using Zoom.us or other private video chat will open up multi player webcams all in one room.. 

OBS is free from https://obsproject.com/ and anyone can can GO LIVE from https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard

fro a slide see: https://goo.gl/photos/BdRNxpFGnUmEUc6T6

pretty useful post from +Dan Russell on timeline generation tools .. as always he makes you Search for the answer, so that's part of the fun.. For those who pay attention, you will see i created a timeline by hand at:
http://www.whatsinkenilworth.com/2015/08/social-video-using-webrtc-and-whats.html
There are many great info visualization tools... ... but the plain old timeline is still incredibly useful for organizing a collection of events that happen over time. For instance, here's a timeline showing the history of Macs (you can click on it to see in full-resolution).

a month ago we have a post by google called everything in it's right place and now today we see, for me anyway, the severing of google+ -- youtube comments .. a real bummer for me -- not sure i will have the energy to cross post the many thoughts i have on youtube videos to repost at google+ .. In the last four years I've made over 24,000 posts at g+ however I can only really see myself posting at my post and at youtube from now on ..
 .. my legacy blog is Mike Downes Media www.whatsinkenilworth.com (made by blogger, and powered by the One Google login that posers all ..)

Just love the feel of this place, friendly owner and welcoming smile. Upstairs there's an excellent seating area, the styling with the bike on the wall is fantastic.

On a four mile walk across London yesterday, Somerset House was my highlight. When you step through those three arches, you enter a quiet hidden world of tranquillity. The courtyard has little chairs where people sat alone read a paper book, just brilliant.

Be careful with online prices (at Tesco Direct) compare to instore prices on larger items ie a TV. We had issues which ended up with a price haggle, thankfully Duty Manager agreed with us in the end, and gave us the Online Price.

On passing by the yard, I was totally impressed by the display of freshly cut timber posts. The smell was excellent too. Here are a few photos, I would certainly loot at more uses to these posts, sure as a fence, but from what I've seen they deserve to be hung on the wall as an art exhibit :)

Fantastic visit here today for a christening. Lovely to see such a friendly and welcoming Revd. The Church Hall adjoins the Church with such excellent facilities, see the photos..

Benefit have moved to a brand new Head Office in the Marconi Building (former New Street Works), I've attached a comp slip with the new address. It was lovely to see some of the radio memorabilia on display - so important as from 1912 this was the first ever purpose built radio factory. Visitors to Benefit Cosmetics should be aware 'Marconi Building' is also another the name of one of the local Anglia Ruskin University faculties, so make sure you arrive at New Street :)
