Google+ and Hangouts

Google+ is a social sharing tool, somewhat like Facebook. One of the differences is that you can group the connections you make into Circles and then share items only with certain circles. You can also separately view information posted by people in one of the circles. Hangouts allow live video communication – interactively (up to 10 people) or broadcast (can be seen by anyone that’s invited to view). These are rather new tools, and will take a bit of trial and error to use effectively.

For help in learning how to use these, here are some links:

About Sigurd

Moved to rural Vermont in 1998, recently semi-retired. Intellect-oriented person (I spend a lot of time in my mind, have worked to broaden, regularly, the boundaries of what I pay attention to). One of my current interests is Goethe's approach to understanding the structures of the world (Science) and how it is different from Newton's approach. Goethe tried to stay open to what more the world might tell him of its nature, whereas Newton conceived frameworks that them became a window through which nature is viewed and understood.
