Thank you +Liz Heron for sharing!

Re-sharing to make this public...
Here are a few things I learned from our first New York Times Google+ video hangout:

I just watched it in full, after running around with +Alexis Mainland and +Bill Horn "producing" it behind the scenes yesterday. It's pretty amazing how raw and organic it feels, and how different than traditional broadcast. +Sam Grobart and +Jenna Wortham did a great job as hosts (thanks, guys!).

1. Apparently there is a thriving community of artists, musicians and fashion types on here, something I learned during the hangout. We'll have to do one of these with our Culture critics!
2. If you're a publisher hosting a hangout, be aware that every comment you type on your page scrolls across the bottom of the video in progress.
3. Next time, we'll ask everyone to introduce themselves to get a sense of who we're talking to and bring out the shy ones.
4. An echo can screw up the audio for everyone. It probably helps to give instructions to the participants about their echo settings, and headphones on everyone might be beneficial.
5. Every 10 minutes or so, ask participants to drop out and make room for more people.
6. Having a popular hangout is both a blessing and a curse -- when lots of people are trying to get in, it makes the hangout somewhat unstable. Anyone have any tips on how to tackle that problem?

"I'm sure you'll hate it but, like [Adam Sandler] always says, the lower the Rotten Tomato meter, the higher the box office."

That's "Jack and Jill"'s co-screenwriter Steve Koren.

Helpful for all of us experimenting with Google+ Pages.

5 Cool Tips You Should Know About Google+ Pages

1. You Can +1 a Page to Show Support or Add Them to Your Circles

We know you love some brands and businesses. Others you may want to show a quick note of support, but not see all their updates. So just drop a little +1 and keep going, or add a page to any circle you want. You're in control.

2. No Google+ Page Can Follow You Until You Follow Them

We want Google+ to be a place you love to share. Pages cannot circle you until you follow them first. Of course, if you are in their circles, they can share great deals, exclusive coupons, product tips and hangouts, but the relationship is yours to start.

3. In Fact, Google+ Pages Can't Even Mention You Unless You're Connected

That's right. The +Google+ page can't even say your name unless you're following. No +mention spam.

4. Google+ Pages Automatically Unfollow You If You Unfollow Them

If you remove a Google+ Page from your circles, you are automatically removed from their circles. You always are in charge.

5. You Can Find Google+ Pages In Google Search

With a new feature we call Direct Connect, just type + followed by the brand name in Google Search, and you can see pages automatically display. Type +Pepsi to see Pepsi, and +Dell for Dell. It's that easy.

We're very excited about the great work we've seen with Google+ Pages so far. So many amazing companies are here, and you can see from all the work we've done that we want your experience on Google+ to remain a fantastic one.

Numbers here are interesting... According to the State Department, some applicants from the Philippines have been waiting since 1988.

Every journalist is going to watch this like a hawk. If Mitt Romney is open to a hang out (and it goes smoothly), this could help news orgs and their guests feel more comfortable using the tool.
Special Report originally shared:
 
On November 15, Bret Baier will begin the first in a series of Google + Hangouts with Governor Mitt Romney. Throughout the weeks leading up to Election 2012, Bret will moderate a Hangout with each of the GOP presidential candidates and several members of the public. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer!
