    @ Jamesn If you are able to get to Fremont BART I might be able to give you ride. Let me know and I can confirm Tuesday.

    August 21, 2011

  • James Howard R.

    Anyone coming from the Hayward area? I really could use a ride rather than paying 20 bucks for transit. jhrussell[at]gmail.com if you do!

  • S_o_ni

    @ Lo, just sent you an invite to [masked].

  • Van R.

    S Sriram, Please do email me soon vanriper [at] google. What I had in mind was a bit different and I would be recording the hangout. Maybe we can reconcile our two plans into one somehow though. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Van, that is exactly what BrowserEggs is planning on doing we will be putting together an auctioned hangout and I'm lining up tech-celebs and have Chris Pirilo / Amanda Bain and a few others. Ben Parr would be great too. I also have dyyno.com partnering and their software will broadcast will send u an email privately with more details

    August 19, 2011

  • Robert S.

    We have been discussing this all day in fact Van. & yes if you would like to help set it up, we'd totally +1 it. We'd like to get the meetup transcribed too - so having an HD snap shot would be awesome for this purpose too.

    August 18, 2011

  • Van R.

    You should definitely do a hangout at the start projected to the audience. I'll even volunteer to use my computer for the hangout. I'm already setup to create a screencast of any hangouts I am in that can be published in HD video on YouTube afterwards. =)
