It is definitely worth trying.

Actually, one of the many things I meant to do and haven't gotten around to yet. I think it would also be cool to have completely virtual meetups as a hangout.

Of course the technical setup to make this effective at a physical meetup is a little daunting. I could just point a camera, that's not hard. But generally you'd want to see the presentation too, and I don't know that the camera would really cover that clearly. And the sound isn't likely to be great without a mic on the speaker and a room mic... and it would largely be a broadcast, hard to really participate from a hangout.

But hey, if there's some interest, doesn't seem like it would be hard to at least provide the camera and hangout and see what happens. It's not the first time someone has complained of being excluded by Thursdays. Anyone else's thoughts?

I have yet to make it to a meetup and this summer it has been deemed

asking everyone to change the date, what is everyone's feeling on
putting the meetups on Google+ as a Hangout?

Naturally, it is free and we would just need someone to point a camera
from their phone or a laptop.  I am willing to start setting up the
Google+ page/account.

Thanks for you thoughts,
