Every year, Hot Pipis hosts free coffee on Christmas morning.
The only catch is a $ note donation to Muscular Dystrophy. The coffee is served as it comes; no special orders or take-away coffee, unless it comes with a pricetag!

This was so great to take part in.
To be able to bring some joy to veterans who are no longer able to visit their memorials.

This drought has the potential to be a major issue in coming years for communities across the US.

We treated our air and water like a dump for too long.
This will serve as a wake up call I suppose.

Many look to analysis for information on how they are tracking.

This week was interesting as #leweb12 was being live-streamed with some really great information.

Sometimes we just need a little bit of help to get everything sorted out within our living environment

Today we're marking the birth of a someone who is a hero to many of us at Google. Alan Turing was born 100 years ago into a world very different from our own—but he’s a founding father of every computer and Internet company today. In 1936, his paper “On Computable Numbers”  introduced two key concepts, “algorithms” and “computing machines," which now rank among the most important intellectual breakthroughs of the 20th century.

In the evolution of computing, all paths trace back to Turing—so we're proud to help commemorate and preserve his legacy. In 2010 we helped raise funds to preserve Turing's papers at Bletchley Park, and recently we’ve worked with curators at London’s Science Museum on their new exhibition “Codebreaker - Alan Turing’s Life and Legacy.” And of course, we couldn't let this occasion pass without a doodle. If you visit our homepage today, you'll find a simulation of his “Turing machine"—try your hand at programming it, and read more about Turing in our blog post: http://goo.gl/ByYbV

Introduction
I love to play..... with technology, especially videos and live-video streaming.! (+Live Google Hangouts onAir! Simply one of the best features of this platform!)
The technology is changing daily, as new ideas come into play, so I do spend much time researching for improvements.

Imagine having an audience of 100,000 people glued to your every word! (That is an amazing feeling)
For some people that is what I am working to achieve so that they become better known for their abilities in a global marketplace.

Apart from that I spend time with my children on the weekends when they visit, sometimes that can be an adventure in itself!
If you are looking to see some of the video work that I have done, please subscribe to my YouTube page: www.youtube.com/user/EpicBusinessTools

The whole part of using new media for journalism really excites me. I came to meet +Sarah Hill through contacts using Google + and have been part of her U_news program since it's inception in September last year.
When the ability to use my iPhone (with G+) came in early October, that really changed how and where I could report a story from. In the many weeks that U_news has been running, I have been live on a passenger ferry, live from a kid's triathlon, at a wildlife sanctuary, by the beach and many places in between. 
The days of having a field army(crew) on site to report live for a newscast are numbered, particularly with the enormous cost of covering an outside broadcast event on location.
Much of this is also a credit to the +Telstra 3G network that I use in Australia, as I have proved this to be among the best in the world. I am able to produce a stable (broadcast quality) video image to +KOMU 8 News which is half way around the world from where I live. 
I still pinch myself at what I have done and I know that there are areas that I can still improve the technology to make this even more accessible.
There are several other media organisations starting to use this platform to engage with their audience which is exciting for me.
News broadcasts will not ever be the same. There are several natural events recently that would benefit from crowd-sourced news stories from local people.

There are several other industries that will benefit from the face-to-face ability of Google Plus. I hope you are able to gain as much out of this platform as I have.

One other thing: FILL IN YOUR PROFILE!
This helps other find you so that they are able to add you to their circles. Adding some pictures also helps as well.
Use Google Translate to help with language barriers, even though it is not perfect, the program makes it easier.
