UPDATE 2: Here is the direct link: https://hangouts.google.com/call/uqhuabsm7zv3tdvuzvmdsbjvyaa
UPDATE: Okay, so I went in and figured how to start the conversation, and it provides a direct link to join the conversation, so I will come back around 9:50 CST and post the link directly into the conversation
I nearly forgot that today is already Wednesday and tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I promised to post plans for video conference tomorrow.
So, here’s my plan. At 10:00 a.m. tomorrow (Central Standard Time) , I will open a Google+ Hangout, that I will tentatively call “Knitterman’s Thanksgiving” and it will be set to “public” or “open” so all you have to do is go your Google+ account and look for the hangout with that name. If it is anything different I will come back here and change the information.
What you need is a webcam and a Google+ account. Then go to Google Hangouts (I just discovered it’s now a separate service and hard to find on its own) and search for Knitterman’s Thanksgiving and you should be able to join, up to 10 participants at a time. I will be there from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., or if there’s a good crowd we’ll just keep talking a visiting. 🙂
If there are some who wish to ignore the dishes from their Thanksgiving meal and would rather chat and visit in the evening, I may open a Hangout in the evening, around 6:00 or 7:00 — I will come back here to confirm.
I will also post on Google+, Facebook, and elsewhere when i’ve opened the chat.
