Getting Started with Google Hangouts

On the Tuesday evenings during Write Out, July 17 and July 25, we will be hosting “Map with Me” Google Hangouts. We invite you to watch the live stream, join us live, and/or watch the archive. Watch the news feed for links to the events and sign up to receive updates via email.

If you are interested in participating in the hangout live, you will need your Google + setup to be activated. Here’s the Getting Started with Google and our G+ Community page to help you get set up.
