Would have absolutely loved to go. He's well known for his 'backpack' journalism workshop. I don't think he's gotten to Hangouts yet...not sure.

Mobile Hangouts On Air-
Just a quick test to see if it would work.  Testing of the Dell Venue 8 pro with external usb camera Logitech C270 . With a OTG cable you can attach any usb device to the tablet.

Dell Venue 8 Pro / Hangout On Air test -
If you skip to 7:00 in the video, you see fish in a pond.
Video is about ten minutes long. At some points the video quality is good and some points not so good. If you what to use the Dell Venue 8 Pro to start a Hangout On Air and take with other people online. It should get the job done. If you are standing next to someone and want to interview them in a hangout, it should get the job done.  If you are looking for something to take with you 24/7 so you can do Hangouts On Air.  And you do not want to carry a laptop computer. Then you might want to take a look at the Dell Venue 8 Pro.  It's a small 8 inch windows tablet.  If you are a person that always has a laptop with you.  The you might want to look at the Dell Venue 11 Pro as a laptop replacement. With the Dell Venue 11 Pro you can get a special keyboard with a battery inside.  With that keyboard you can turn you Dell Venue 11 Pro into a laptop with about 15 hours of power. So you can be mobile for a long time.

Dell Venue 8 Pro hangout test with ManyCam -
Hangouts On Air with Dell Venue 8 Pro. Testing with ManyCam virtual webcam. As I said in my last video there is a problem with the camera in hangouts on a Dell Venue 8 Pro. A problem that the people at Google know about and are working on. Until there is a fix for the problem. You can use ManyCam as a workaround.

Audio is bad but my main focus was to test the video. This was outdoors , inside the audio should be better. Also I was using the built in mic. Will try to do another video with a USB microphone attached to it. To hook up something like a  USB microphone to it. You need OTG cable. You won't be able to find a OTG cable in most stores. You will have to order in online. I am waiting on one to come from Amazon. The Dell Venue 8 Pro also has a  Headphone and microphone combojack . So you can also plug in a headset with that instead of a USB device.

Why persist with ManyCam, when there are better options around to ingest camera sources?
Have to tried using VMix? ( http://www.vmix.com.au/ ) This program doesn't use up a heap of computer resources like many of the other encoders do.

For the people that work at tv stations. What kind of security do you have where you work. Do you feel safe? Have you had any problems in the past?

I have never worked at a place that is totally safe.  There are safeguards, but if someone wanted to come in and do some damage, it would be fairly easy.

What do you think of this?  An anchor responds to viewers who complain about storm coverage.

I've been frustrated with viewers before, but I don't know what to think of this!

I don't really ever ask much from social media...but THIS below is important. Please Read, Share, Donate, Msg my friend Marcus. Hoping that this community might relate a bit more than the general public as Marcus is a news/video journalist too. We first met during our first jobs at the local NBC station in Hawaii. He is married with 3 young boys. 
Hopefully we can help him win his fight and also spread awareness of his rare disease. #mucosalmelanoma is a rare form of Melanoma cancer which accounts for only 1% of all melanoma cases, or about 700 per year.  Needless to say a cure is far off, but with experimental medicines his life can be prolonged by 5-7 years. #kickcancersbutt  
Thank you for taking a moment to read this.

I was fortunate to attend a entrepreneurship meeting held by http://nahj.org that is holding a series of meetings to help #ethnicentrepreneurship  and startups.

Join this great organization! 
 
Yesterday I attended the National Hispanic Association of Journalist's entrepreneurship meeting that should be the model of all entrepreneurship meetings :) It focused on #ethnicentrepreneurship and provided startup strategies, inspiration, a sense of community and collaboration.  

We kicked off the meeting with the staggering statistic of <1% of Venture backed startups are Latino. Fortunately, +Fox News Latino partnered and is leading by example by spearheading for news broadcasting. But, as a society we need to find solutions in many areas and need diverse perspectives and talent. If you have a dream, do not be discouraged and pursue it!
