Tips and Tricks for Google+ Hangouts on Air - The Book
Today I decided to write a 6000-word book. Phew.
Based on my Tips and Tricks for Hangouts on Air and Marketing Guide for Hangouts on Air, I wrote up a big ebook on how to run and market your Hangouts on Air. It's completely revised, expanded and improved based on what I've learned after running literally hundreds of Hangouts on Air.
This is a rough draft of the book, but I've made it open to the public, and anyone can make comments. Please let me know if there are any ideas you'd like me to include. At some point I'll actually get it designed, with picture examples and then release it as a free PDF.

Do you think 3-D-printed food will be out of this world, or will the idea go stale even before liftoff?

The "Star Trek" actors sounded like fanboys (+ a fangirl) when they hung out with real astronauts. But notice how the astronauts dodged the question about their favorite "Trek" captain.

It doesn't look good for the world's most successful planet-hunting probe, but in any case, there's no reason for despair. Right?

If only the skies where I live now (in the Seattle area) were as clear as the skies where I grew up (Eastern Iowa). How's the night sky looking in your neck of the woods? Whether they're deliciously dark or light-polluted, you'll love this slideshow:

Are you seeing any evidence of cicadas revving up their jet engine? Would love to hear stories or be pointed to pictures. But I'm not just looking for those namby-pamby nymphs ... I wanna see legions of red-eyed monsters!

Is this just one bad winter, or is it a bad sign for the long-term health of honeybees?

This study focuses on Europeans, but you don't have to go back much further to link up the family trees of everyone who's alive today. So why can't we all just get along?

Do plants really cheer each other on, or give each other catcalls? It's hard for me to believe that they can sense positive or negative vibes from other plants, but what do you think?

Think we'll ever get to the point where humans meet up with Curiosity? When? Feel free to venture a guess, and we'll find out who was right when the time comes ;-) Thanks to Ken Kremer and Marco Di Lorenzo for the picture:

Some critics say this report isn't in step with what other countries are doing about pesticides. But it's correct in contending that the causes of colony collapse disorder are complex. What do you think?

How to make eye contact on Hangouts. My setup for Hangouts. I use a Logitech C920 and place the camera in front of the eyes of the speaker so that I am looking right into the camera all the time.

Had a nice chat with Virgin Galactic's Richard Branson, he joked that SpaceShipTwo's pilots might have been tempted to go all the way up to space but knew they would have been fired. Do you think Sir Richard will get his spaceflight wish granted next year?

Hooeee! SpaceShipTwo blasts off and goes supersonic. Wish I were there ... this time I had to watch it from afar:
