Hello everyone! We are almost ready to release our feature to allow you to charge participants to join your event. This great for trainings, exclusive conferences, access to a course, and a lot more. 

We want to test it out with some early users first, if you are interested in trying it out please let us know below and paste your Crowdcast profile url as well. 

THANKS!

Lots of people ask how I have so many followers. Well, it was actually an event in a few years back involving Google+. This is the story of how I got punched in the face by the internet.

It’s the summer of 2011, a few months after one of my darkest periods. I’m working day and night on freelance projects and need to find something to keep me sane....

It was great seeing this feature was live today on my Crowdcast Experiments Session #1! thank you +Saidur Hossain! I think having the question visible for about 1 minute should be sufficient. Some folks have suggested it should remain up as long as the Q is being answered-- I disagree.

An answer might require the host to do a screen share.

The Text in the Question area could/should be able to be a topic marker that the host puts in-- for a teaching presentation, for example. A topic start would be great to be time stamped!! But yiu wouldn't want the Q/text remaining on the host's screen the whole time, especially if a lengthy bunch of content.

The Hangout Button api seems to be broken at the moment. Instead of showing the button it is showing a white box. 

Here is an example: http://codepen.io/saidur/pen/bNBYbO
