What you should forward to is the switch to .Net and library dependencies.

Hey, KShep, how are you? I haven't seen you in any of my social streams for far too long:-)

I'm part of a distributed engineering team, and although we make heavy use of chat, it's always nice to hop into live video from time to time. There are certainly cases where we just start a new Hangout, but we also have one that's just running all the time.

If you create a new multi-day event on Google Calendar, you can "Add video call" to that event. The hangout will last for the duration of the event, even if everyone drops out. Invitees can come and go as they please by clicking on the link in the event on their calendar.

It's not necessarily that difficult to set up a hangout on the fly, but it's definitely a bit quicker to say "anybody who's interested in this conversation can jump in the hangout".

Of course I just realized I messed up the screenshot of the example... ours is scheduled from 1/1/2014 to 1/1/2015. Sorry about that.

This is the age I coach in San Francisco. My two favorite lines from the article:

"[Mesquite Pee Wee Football Association President Ronnie Henderson] suggested Elijah play for his middle school team, but the boy doesn't have much football experience and was hoping to feel his way in peewee first."

...and...

"'No one is telling boys who are too thin or too small that they can't play football,' [Elijah's mother] said. 'Why tell my kid he's too big?'"

Why yes, I do know Ken Sheppardson. He's one of the other two accounts you've made me create, Google+, because I have accounts on three different Google Apps-hosted domains, and there's no way to link them, as far as I can tell. It's unfortunate, because people never know which account to invite to Hangouts. Hm.

What makes me feel uncomfortable about the "Misunderstood" video isn't that the kid is recording video. He could do that and still participate. What gets me is that apparently rather than just capturing video to edit later, he has to constantly be fiddling with the phone and editing such that he can say "Hey, here's a video of that thing we just did" at the end of the day. The real value in having these sorts of things recorded is realized 6 weeks, or 6 months or 6 years after they happen, not 6 minutes.
VideoEveryone else seems to love it. It is being referred to as "endearing" and "touching," eliciting a "merry little cry." It will "tug at heartstrings," even. It's a new commercial for Apple's iPhone 5s and its AirPlay technology. I caught it on TV last night, and I couldn't disagree more. It's [...]

As they roll it out you're asked if you'd like to authorize some default URL (in my case +KenSheppardson) or request something else. I don't recall the exact wording, but when you request an alternate you can say something like "this is the name I'm widely known by online". Since this is my twitter handle, username pretty much everwhere (e.g. FriendFeed), and I own kshep.net... boom.

Yep, all's well. Hope all's well with you too :-)
