Daria Musk3,803,548*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time. I'll be sure to circle you and invite you when you're web-camera-ready! ✪ Come with song requests, stories and even a "dream to amplify". The theme of this hangout is #amplifyyourdreams  cause that's what you guys did for me. You turnt it up to 11! *SRSLY, MESSAGE ME* Send me a private message or chat or comment to me here if you'd like to arrange a special invite or if you're new and want to join the family and need some tips for getting in.

It's really the greatest possible gift, just to let me sing for you and get to know you again and again and again.  *SPREAD THE LOVE* Share this invite too. Let's grow the family.

Come to this Hangout On Air with +Trey Ratcliff, the world-class photographer whose work is displayed at StuckInCustoms.com. He will be interviewed by +Robert Scoble, well-known blogger, technology analyst, and amateur photographer, as well as our very own Google Student Ambassadors.

James Lawson-Smith34,365This event will be streamed live from http://borderregion.tv/live.html Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers. The Red Bull Stratos team brings together the world's leading minds in aerospace medicine, engineering, pressure suit development, capsule creation and balloon fabrication. It includes retired United States Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who holds three of the records Felix will strive to break. Joe's record jump from 102,800 ft in 1960 was during a time when no one knew if a human could survive a jump from the edge of space. Joe was a Captain in the U.S. Air Force and had already taken a balloon to 97,000 feet in Project ManHigh and survived a drogue mishap during a jump from 76,400 feet in Excelsior I. The Excelsior III mission was his 33rd parachute jump. Although researching extremes was part of the program's goals, setting records wasn't the mission's purpose. Joe ascended in helium balloon launched from the back of a truck. He wore a pressurized suit on the way up in an open, unpressurized gondola. Scientific data captured from Joe's jump was shared with U.S. research personnel for development of the space program. Today Felix and his specialized team hope to take what was learned from Joe's jumps more than 50 years ago and press forward to test the edge of the human envelope.Red Bull Stratos LIVE From Space2012-10-09 14:30:0015

Throughout the five minute video, +Matt Granger shares how it’s possible to achieve quality off-camera lighting with minimal capital. It’s a great watch for strobists new and old.

This is basically the same setup I use minus the pop-up.

It might not be the best looking modifier for high end weddings, but for only a couple of dollars it’s a great DIY alternative to more expensive alternatives like the Impact Smoothy 360 Degree Glove Diffuser (and a lot easier to eat the cost if it dies a horrible death out on the streets).

#Timelapses are awesome and so is high speed #photography. if only there was a device that can do them both….

Oh wait… #Triggertrap connects your #camera to your #smartphone and uses all the phone’s sensors to make timelapses, star trails, bursting #balloons, breaking eggs, #night to day #sequences, #water splashes and so much more. If only there was some place nifty to put your camera while shooting all this #awesomeness. Oh wait, we are also giving away a 3 Legged Thing #Evo 3 #Brian #tripod. So you really will be getting a full kit for just about any advanced tech shooting. The complete package is after the jump, but retail value is about #$500, depending on your camera.

This would be of interest to anyone that would like to do video work for a very large automotive company. Very exciting oportunity for someone with the right skills in the UK.

Job Opening - Video Journalist - London / Essex

Want to create video stories that are seen by millions of people across hundreds of media outlets – one week filming a sports car driving through the Alps, the next interviewing racing drivers at one of the world’s biggest motor shows?

That’s what our current VJ +Matthew Tyzack has been doing. But now Matthew is moving on to a new role (still with us) in Dubai – so we're recruiting for the London based position.

If you know someone who might be interested please share this post with them. Thanks!
