China Hangouts's posts

Hi there,

Hope somebody is watching this space still.
I´m not planning to revive the China Hangouts, but I do plan to record a set of talks with our speakers at the China Speakers Bureau on what was previously known as the Hangouts on air.
Things have changed quite a lot since I used this tool, so would not mind to find a few guinea pigs to play the system and get familiar with it again. Any volunteers?
