Dolidh Young (Eileen)267,280I was recently asked what kind of pages I find myself following. The answer is that really it's a fairly small circle, compared to the nearing 3 and a half thousand people I follow.So here it is... My pages circle... filled with all sorts of stuff, from Chrome and hangout apps, charities, chocolate (yes, lots of chocolate - +Cadbury UK share a lot!) and news.There's a special wee charities section for +Macmillan Cancer Support,+Marie Curie Cancer Care and +Dogs Trust... Three charities very close to my heart. Between them, I've had family helped and we adopted a dog from Dogs Trust.Oh yeah - and +TED  - if you've never watched their inspiring videos, I absolutely encourage you to.

Tiffany Henry (Tif)28HIRL (Hangout in Real Life) Pages - Circle share time!In the wake of the huge #SXSW , or rather, #SXG + HIRL event, and seeing all the memories created and friendships deepening from that, I have decided to compile all of these regional HIRL pages together into one circle. The reason I support these pages, is that they were all made with the same goal in mind, bringing people together. No one person or entity can dictate every HIRL experience, and that is why in managing the +HIRL page I decided to give up dictatorship and instead make it a community page with several managers who will represent every country, every religion, every opinion and so on. These are all community pages, made for and by the community. They and the people behind them totally get what building a community is about and that is why I am sharing them with you today. If you want the experience of a lifetime meeting new people that you interact with all the time on this space, I suggest that you circle each and every one of these pages and tune in to their posts as in the coming months, there will be lots of HIRLing events to choose from!Upcoming HIRLS>Brunch HIRL in Columbus, Ohio! - This will be on March 25th at 1pm. Circle +HIRLCBUS and +Christopher Slee if you live in the area or will be in town and would like to have some brunch with fellow plussers!>HIRL in Italy! - I believe this will be from April 7-14. Please ask +Mara Mascaro and circle +HIRL-IT for more details.>HIRL in Nashville! - It seems that the tentative date for this is set for June 7-10. Here is the webpage http://www.nashvillehirl.com/, and circle +Nashville HIRL for details and updates.>Hirl in Edinburgh, Scotland! - July 12-15.

Some of the people here have made great if not legendary tutorials, some are STILL posting publicly about Google+ also regularly giving advice, hints and tips in the use of the platform or G+tiquette. Just writing excellent posts does not qualify anyone, there has to be a lot of G+ love in the stream... :-) ❤+❤+❤ #Gplustip #googleplus #sharedcircles #G+Tip2012-01-21 19:13:55128591826

HOUSE SHOW TOUR 2012 & NEW WEBSITE

After the great experience of the NYC HIRL (Hang Out In Real Life) concert, I thought, “What about taking the show right into people's living rooms?” A HIRL House Show Tour!

I love playing at venues, but there is nothing like a house show. Twenty to thirty people in a living room makes for the perfect intimate setting for a concert.

Since I’m living on the east coast I figured that would be a good place to start. If you live in or near Boston, NYC, Philly, DC, Raleigh, Charleston, Atlanta, Tampa, or anywhere in between and you would like to host or know someone that might like to host a house show then let's rock and roll and share this post with them!

This could be an incredible experience for all, but I need your help getting it started. For more information or to book your own eventpleas... more »

Susan Crawford on why US Internet Access is slow, costly and unfair

This 25 minute video is a good watch if, like me, you've always wanted to know why companies like Verizon, Comcast and Cablevision overcharge their customers for internet access. Since it was invented here in the US, I am not surprised, but at the same time, something this important a part of our lives, from needing it(most times solely) to search for jobs to needing it in emergencies, should not only be affordable, but more accessible as well.

As a result, Crawford says, all of us are at the mercy of the biggest business monopoly since Standard Oil in the first Gilded Age a hundred years ago.

“The rich are getting gouged, the poor are very often left out, and this means that we’re creating, yet again, two Americas, and deepening inequality through this communications inequality,” Crawford tells Bill. '

Doodle: Franz Kafka

Hoy celebramos el 130 aniversario del nacimiento de Franz Kafka, escritor austrohúngaro célebre por sus relatos surrealistas. 

En el doodle vemos una escena de La Metamorfosis, la novela corta más reconocida de Kafka, en la que el protagonista, Gregorio Samsa, amanece un día convertido en un enorme insecto, retratando la incomprensión que sufre por parte del mundo que lo rodea. La manzana que vemos sobre la letra L, representa la sabiduría que Gregorio debe alcanzar para sobrellevar su condición. 

La obra surrealista de Kafka ha trascendido la literatura, convirtiéndose en un adjetivo: "kafkiano", el cual hace alusión a un hecho por demás inusitado.

So cool!

Pride Easter Egg

Discovered a fascinating little Easter Egg while I was working on a spreadsheet in Docs. It turns out that you can fancy up your spreadsheets with pride colors! I've decided to use the spreadsheet I used to plan my trip to Europe to show you how it works. You can fancy up your spreadsheets one of two ways:

1) Type the letters P-R-I-D-E in each column on the top row, then press TAB. 

2) At the end of the URL for the spreadsheet, type in &pride=true, then reload the spreadsheet.

As a spreadsheet junkie this made my day. Go ahead and try it!!

You could earn miles to go HIRLin with your friends here on G+ ^_^

Miles to Give

I figured that since I am now in the middle of traveling that this would be a sweet incentive to donate ;)

+American Airlines has teamed up with +American Red Cross to support the people affected by the OKC tragedy.

Through June 30, 2013, AAdvantage members can earn a one-time award of 250 AAdvantage miles for a minimum donation of $50, or 500 AAdvantage miles for a donation of $100 or more to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief.

Your help is greatly appreciated by the people affected by natural disasters such as the Oklahoma, Midwest & Great Plains, Texas and Kansas tornadoes. A gift of any size supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross, whether it's responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills that can save a life, or assisting military members and their families. Your support helps the Red Cross prepare for and respond to the storms, and provide services such as food, shelter and emotional support to those impacted.

For more information, see here: http://www.aa.com/i18n/urls/relief-efforts.jsp

#reasonstohirl  by +Derek Ross 

And so the +BigAndroidBBQ has come to an end. The memories and good times had though, shall continue to live on.

This past weekend at the #bigandroidbbq  in Hurst, Texas a lot of fun was had from meeting new people, making new friends, visiting with old friends, partying, and of course geeking out with all things Android related.

Some have asked me what my favorite part of the weekend was. That's an easy one. It's the relationships. As with any +HIRL (Hangout In Real Life) the relationships with people made are the ones that truly stand out, something you can take home with you and smile about. These online friendships are much, much more than just virtual people. They are true friends. I'd like to thank you all for one hell of a weekend. I'm sad to see it end.

Many of you made this weekend fun... a special shout out to +Jonathan Franklin +Darryl Barnes +Allie Ogden +Jody Barnes (and wife) +Nathan Amos +Trevor Vass +Randy Kelly +Kyle Salewski +Aaron Weyhrich the crew that I either partied with every night or hung out with all day long. We gotta do it again... soon.

I also met tons of others that made the weekend memorable. +Jeffrey Young's blue contacts that creeped me out, making me stare into them.
+Jeffrey Moore's ability to drink beer like no other, making me jealous and putting my beer consumption skills to shame.
+Russell Holly it was great to finally meet you. Thanks for throwing me into the pool. Thanks for also asking for my opinion during your session too. I hope I didn't ramble on for too long :P
+steven smith The guy that owns rootzwiki knows who I am? Damn! Thanks for the plushy. I may take you up on the offer at some at some point.
Thanks for taking the "drunk review" of the #android tablet so lightly +Adam Outler, we had good times doing it. All in good fun. You guys at +xda-developers rock keep up the amazing work!

+Corry Robb +Pearl Chen +Aaron Kasten +Cameron Summerson +Robert Andersen +Renaud Lepage +Aiman Farooq and many, many more, it was great meeting you all!___ #reasonstohirl  by +Derek Ross

It's a castle!!!
+HIRL Edinburgh is only about 4 weeks away!

+Dolidh Young has had a run around the centre of Edinburgh, UK to get ready to show people round for the photowalk. How exciting!

I'm sure the photographers are in for a treat too!

I posted a wee vlog about the Edinburgh HIRL's photowalk runthrough that I did through the weekend.

There's a couple wee bits shown in the video that we'll be visiting when we're running about taking pictures... so check it out!

Thanks to +Steven Mcvicar for being my cameraman and walking way more than we first thought. Also thanks to +Antony Spiteri, +Moritz Tolxdorff and +THE HANGOUT SHOW for letting me in hangouts while I was on the move to test ^_^ And +Kevin Green for the awesomesauce music :D

People will need to wrap up in case it gets cold, with comfy comfy shoes, but I'll write a wee checklist for people that are coming over.___It's a castle!!!

Very exciting stuff, +Dolidh Young has been out and about in Edinburgh, UK getting ready to hangout and photowalk with people around Edinburgh.

Have you got your ticket to Scotland ready?

I'm absolutely nackered today....

+Steven Mcvicar and I had a mega-successful run-through of where we wanted the Edinburgh photowalk to go for #edinburghhirl  (July 12th-15th 2012) finalised the locations and checked the signals.

It looks like Edinburgh has incredible 3G everywhere we want to photowalk from... so my bandwidth is likely to take a bit of a bashing.

One of the things that's there that won't be there on the HIRL will be the Olympic rings on the Mound... As the Olympic flame is due to pass through soon... So I thought I'd +1 them up and show you guys!

It was really terrific weather today - I hope we get the same kind of weather when we get there in July!

So special thanks goes out to +Moritz Tolxdorff and +Antony Spiteri for their help for making sure the 3G signals were strong by hanging out with me ^_^

Neem deel aan mijn +HIRL

by +Dolidh Young
thanks to +Nakama Sōsaku for the translation :)

In de zomer ga ik van 12 t/m 15 juli met enkele mensen HIRLen in Edinburgh! Ik heb besloten een FAQ (veelgestelde vragen) op te stellen voor vragen over HIRLs die nog je aan niemand gesteld hebt.

Wat is een HIRL?

Een HIRL is een acronym (een woord samengesteld op basis van de eerste letters van andere woorden) voor Hangout In Real Life.
Ik heb in voorgaande berichten uitgelegd dat Hangouts op Google+ de mogelijkheid bieden om te video chatten met 9 andere personen. Een HIRL is een bijeenkomst op een echte locatie met echte mensen. Als je een fan bent van Twitter, heb je wellicht gehoord van de Twitter versie, ook bekend als Tweetup. Sommige mensen noemen HIRLs ook wel HIPs (dit staat voor Hangout in Person).

In de zomer ga ik van 12 t/m 15 juli met enkele mensen HIRLen in Edinburgh! Ik heb besloten een FAQ (veelgestelde vragen) op te stellen voor vragen over HIRLs die nog je aan niemand gesteld hebt.

Wat is een HIRL?

Een HIRL is een acronym (een woord samengesteld op basis van de eerste letters van andere woorden) voor Hangout In Real Life.
Ik heb in voorgaande berichten uitgelegd dat Hangouts op Google+ de mogelijkheid bieden om te video chatten met 9 andere personen. Een HIRL is een bijeenkomst op een echte locatie met echte mensen. Als je een fan bent van Twitter, heb je wellicht gehoord van de Twitter versie, ook bekend als Tweetup. Sommige mensen noemen HIRLs ook wel HIPs (dit staat voor Hangout in Person).

Wat gebeurt er tijdens een HIRL?

Als een HIRL georganiseerd is, kan je dingen doen als een foto loop. Dit is leuk als je de betreffende stad nog niet kent en je graag wil dat een lokale persoon bezichtigingen toont. Je kan natuurlijk ook gewoon een bus tour volgen als je niet van lopen houdt - maar de kans is groot dat het goedkoper is indien je HIRL-gastheer je rond leidt in de stad waar je je op dat moment bevindt.

Tevens bestaat in een georganiseerde samenkomst de mogelijkheid dat er georganiseerde optredens zijn van opkomende of gerenommeerde Google+ artiesten die bijvoorbeeld hun muziek spelen, de kans om face to face met mensen te spreken waarmee je in hangouts gechat hebt en om sommige alom bekende gezichten te ontmoeten.

Op minder georganiseerde bijeenkomsten, kan je mensen ontmoeten of een kopje koffie drinken met mensen waarmee je uitgehangen hebt. Als je in een voor jou onbekende stad bent, maar je kent iemand die in de betreffende stad woont, laat het ze weten... Je weet het nooit, je hebt wellicht de kans ze te ontmoeten.

HIRLs en veiligheid

Allereerst, zorg ervoor dat mensen weten waar je naar toe gaat.
Als het geen georganiseerde bijeenkomst is, zorg ervoor dat ze weten dat je komt zodat ze ervoor kunnen zorgen dat ze op je wachten als ze activiteiten organiseren... Met name als je laat komt.
Als je het niet prettig vindt alleen te komen, neem dan een vriend mee. Aan de andere kant kan je verwachten dat anderen waarschijnlijk minstens met 1 persoon samen komen... los van de veiligheid is het prettig om wat morele support te hebben als je nog nooit hebt deelgenomen aan een bijeenkomst.

Hoe start ik een HIRL?

Stuur een bericht uit binnen je cirkels en kijk wie er interesse hebben. Zoals eerder aangegeven kan je een bericht sturen aan een specifiek persoon als je een stad bezoekt. Hou in gedachten dat ondanks het feit dat mensen toezeggen te komen, het niet betekent dat ze ook daadwerkelijk komen. Dus hou een boekje (of telefoon, laptop) bij.

Kies een omgeving waarin jij en je gasten zich veilig voelen. Publieke locaties met veel mensen hebben de voorkeur. Denk over het soort mensen dat aanwezig zal zijn, hoeveel mensen je verwacht en kies een passende locatie. Indien je een redelijk telefoon- of wifi-signaal hebt op de locatie van bijeenkomst kan je tijdens de HIRL nog meer mensen betrekken.

Denk ook na over het tijdstip van je HIRL. Zo zal bijvoorbeeld in een voornamelijk Christelijk land veel mensen niet HIRLen tijdens kerst of pasen, dus organiseer zoveel mogelijk rondom de bekendste feestdagen in het betreffende land.

Wat te doen met eten?

Iedereen moet eten. Zoek op google naar restaurants in de omgeving en of er een mogelijkheid bestaat voor goede deals of vouchers. Indien het een gesponsored evenement betreft kan je wellicht gratis eten regelen.

En waar moet ik logeren als ik wil overnachten?

Indie je naar een andere stad reist dan je eigen kan je het best aan je gastheer vragen wat een goede lokatie is om te verblijven. Of als je een superzoeker bent, probeer dan Google. Wellicht kan je nog online kortingen vinden indien je vroegtijdig boekt.

Nog iets anders waar ik echt op moet letten?

Ik zou controleren of er festivals of speciale dagen zijn in de plaats waar je naar toe gaat. Niet alleen om te peilen wat er te doen is, maar ook om te kijken hoeveel mensen er zouden kunnen komen en hoe druk het zal zijn op de locatie waar je naar toe gaat. Ik zou ook controleren of er voordelen zijn op basis van bepaalde vieringen. Het is tenslotte altijd prettig om geld te besparen.

Dus mocht je van plan zijn naar de HIRL te komen die +Andy Stuart en +Dolidh Young houden in Edinburgh #EdinburghHIRL, laat dan een bericht achter met de data waarop je van plan bent te komen en ik zal je op onze lijst zetten zodat we weten hoeveel mensen we kunnen verwachten. En kijk ook naar +HIRL Edinburgh voor het laatste nieuws over de Edinburgh HIRL :)

Liity HIRL:n!

by +Dolidh Young and +Andy Stuart
With thanks to +Tuomas J. Stöckel for the translation into Finnish.

Aion HIRLailla ihmisten kanssa kesällä Edinburghissa heinäkuun 12-15 päivä!. Ajattelin täten kerätä kasaan pienen FAQ-osion niille kysymyksille HIRL:stä joita et ole vielä saattanut kysyä keltään muulta.


Mikä oikeastaan on +HIRL?

+HIRL on akronyymi termille Hangout in Real Life. Olen selittänyt aikaisemmissa postauksissani, että Hangoutit G+:ssa mahdollistavat videokeskustelun jopa yhdeksän ihmisen kanssa - HIRL puolestaan on tapaaminen oikeassa paikassa, oikeiden ihmisten kanssa. Jos olet twitterin fani, olet saattanut kuulla twitter-versiosta nimeltään tweetup. Jotkut kutsuvat edelleen HIRL:iä HIP:ksi (Hangout on Person).

Jos olet twitterin fani, olet saattanut kuulla twitter-versiosta nimeltään tweetup. Jotkut kutsuvat edelleen HIRL:iä HIP:ksi (Hangout on Person).


Mitä HIRL:ssä tehdään?

No, jos +HIRL on koordinoitu, voidaan järjestää esimerkiksi ohjattuja valokuvauskävelyitä (photowalks). Tämä on kätevää, jos et itse tunne kaupunkia hyvin ja haluaisit jonkun paikallisemman näyttävän sinulle paikkoja. Voit tietysti myös hypätä kiertoajelubussiin, jos kävely kauhistuttaa - mutta todennäköisesti edullisempaa on jos annat HIRL-isännän näyttää sinulle paikkoja kyseisessä kaupungissa.
Lisäksi järjestetyissä hengailuissa, saatat löytää järjestetyn keikan, jolla nousevat tai jo tunnetut Google + artistit voivat esitellä musiikkiansa ja voit keskustella ajan kanssa ja kasvotusten jo sinulle tuttujen hangout persoonien kanssa. Vähemmän organisoiduissa hengailuissa voit tavata hangout-tuttuja esimerkiksi virvokkeiden merkeissä. Jos löydät itsesi kaupungista jota et tunne, mutta tiedät jonkun paikallisen, ilmoita heille...voi olla, että pääset tapaamaan heidät oikeasti!


Miten HIRL:ta turvallisesti?

Ensinnäkin, aina varmista, että joku tietää minne olet menossa. Jos kyseessä on järjestetty hengailu, varmista että siellä tiedetään tulostasi, jotta he osaavat odottaa sinua mukaan aktiviteetteihin...varsinkin jos saatat myöhästyä. Jos olet huolissasi yksin menemisestä, ota kaveri mukaan! On odotettavaa, että muillakin on ystäviä mukana. Joukko luo turvaa, mutta on myös mukavaa saada henkistä tukea, jos et ole koskaan ennen hengaillut (in real life).


No, miten aloitan HIRL:n?

Lähetä viestiä eteenpäin ja katso ketkä piireissäsi olisivat kiinnostuneita. Kuten aiemmin mainitsin, voit myös lähettää viestin jollekin tietylle henkilölle, jos olet kaupunkivierailulla. On hyödyllistä pitää mielessä, että vaikka ihmiset lupaavat tulla, ei tarkoita että he varmasti tulevat...on siis hyödyllistä pitää kirja, kännykkä, tai läppäri käsien ulottuvilla.

Yritä valita sijainti, jossa vieraasi voivat tuntea itsensä turvalliseksi. Julkiset tilat ihmisillä on plussaa. Mieti etukäteen millaisia ihmisiä ja kuinka monta heitä on tulossa ja valitse tilanteeseen sopiva paikka. Jos tapaamistilassa on vähänkään toimiva Wifi, saatat saada osallistujia myös netin kautta!

Pohdi myös tapahtuman ajankohtaa. Pääosin kristillisissä maissa moni ihminen ei halua osallistua HIRL:iin jouluna, tai pääsiäisenä, joten suunnittele hengailut juhlapäivien väleihin.


Entäs ruoka?

Kaikkien täytyy syödä! Katsasta Googlesta ravintolat alueeltasi hyvien diilien ja vouchereiden varalta. Jos menet sponsoroituun tapahtumaan, saatat saada ilmaista murkinaa.


Missä yöpyä, jos olen paikkakunnalla muutaman päivän?

Jos matkustat toiseen maahan, tai toiseen kaupunkiin, kannattaa kysyä tapahtuman isännältä mistä saa yöpaikkoja hyvällä hinta-laatu suhteella. Jos taas olet nerokas etsijä-tyyppi, kokeile muutamaa google-hakua. Saatat saada jopa alennuksia, jos varaat ajoissa.


Mitä muuta minun tulee ottaa huomioon?

Ottaisin selvää onko alueella festivaaleja, tai erityistapahtumia kyseisenä ajankohtana. Sen lisäksi, että saat esimakua toiminnasta, saat myös kuvan mahdollisesta ihmismäärästä alueella. On myös hyvä ottaa selvää mahdollisista alennuskausista, koska on aina mukava säästää rahaa.

Jos olet suunnitellut osallistumista HIRL:iin, +Andy Stuart ja minä isännöimme hengailua Edinburghissa #EdingburghHIRL , joten jätä viesti osallistumispäivämääristäsi niin minä lisään sinut listalle, jotta osaamme varautua lukumääriin! Lisäksi, tsekkaa +HIRL Edinburgh uusimpien uutisten varalta :)___

Stay tuned to this page for updates on HIRL events listed in this post by +Tiffany Henry, and others currently in the planning stages!

HIRL (Hangout in Real Life) Pages - Circle share time!

In the wake of the huge #SXSW , or rather, #SXG + HIRL event, and seeing all the memories created and friendships deepening from that, I have decided to compile all of these regional HIRL pages together into one circle. The reason I support these pages, is that they were all made with the same goal in mind, bringing people together. No one person or entity can dictate every HIRL experience, and that is why in managing the +HIRL page I decided to give up dictatorship and instead make it a community page with several managers who will represent every country, every religion, every opinion and so on. These are all community pages, made for and by the community. They and the people behind them totally get what building a community is about and that is why I am sharing them with you today. If you want the experience of a lifetime meeting new people that you interact with all the time on this space, I suggest that you circle each and every one of these pages and tune in to their posts as in the coming months, there will be lots of HIRLing events to choose from!

Upcoming HIRLS

>Brunch HIRL in Columbus, Ohio! - This will be on March 25th at 1pm. Circle +HIRLCBUS and +Christopher Slee if you live in the area or will be in town and would like to have some brunch with fellow plussers!

Please let me know if I have missed an event, need to add a page, or have wrong info on any HIRL on this post

To see an organized list of all HIRL events or to be notified of or reminded on your calendar of each event, also circle +Google Shared Calendar Events and +Charles Hogge to set that up if you own one of these pages in the circle, or if you need that done personally.

All HIRLing experiences that I have had the opportunity to be a part of have been a success so far, and I highly advocate getting out there and meeting people on this space in real life. It is such an amazing experience, and one that, if spent the right way, will leave you feeling withdrawals! What better way is there to deepen connections and forge friendships?

Thank you all for reading, and Happy HIRLing everybody!

Viva la +HIRL!

Tif<3___Stay tuned to this page for updates on HIRL events listed in this post by +Tiffany Henry, and others currently in the planning stages!

Liity HIRL:n!

by +Dolidh Young and +Andy Stuart
With thanks to +Tuomas J. Stöckel for the translation into Finnish.

Aion HIRLailla ihmisten kanssa kesällä Edinburghissa heinäkuun 12-15 päivä!. Ajattelin täten kerätä kasaan pienen FAQ-osion niille kysymyksille HIRL:stä joita et ole vielä saattanut kysyä keltään muulta.


Mikä oikeastaan on +HIRL?

+HIRL on akronyymi termille Hangout in Real Life. Olen selittänyt aikaisemmissa postauksissani, että Hangoutit G+:ssa mahdollistavat videokeskustelun jopa yhdeksän ihmisen kanssa - HIRL puolestaan on tapaaminen oikeassa paikassa, oikeiden ihmisten kanssa. Jos olet twitterin fani, olet saattanut kuulla twitter-versiosta nimeltään tweetup. Jotkut kutsuvat edelleen HIRL:iä HIP:ksi (Hangout on Person).

+HIRL on akronyymi termille Hangout in Real Life. Olen selittänyt aikaisemmissa postauksissani, että Hangoutit G+:ssa mahdollistavat videokeskustelun jopa yhdeksän ihmisen kanssa - HIRL puolestaan on tapaaminen oikeassa paikassa, oikeiden ihmisten kanssa. Jos olet twitterin fani, olet saattanut kuulla twitter-versiosta nimeltään tweetup. Jotkut kutsuvat edelleen HIRL:iä HIP:ksi (Hangout on Person).


Mitä HIRL:ssä tehdään?

No, jos +HIRL on koordinoitu, voidaan järjestää esimerkiksi ohjattuja valokuvauskävelyitä (photowalks). Tämä on kätevää, jos et itse tunne kaupunkia hyvin ja haluaisit jonkun paikallisemman näyttävän sinulle paikkoja. Voit tietysti myös hypätä kiertoajelubussiin, jos kävely kauhistuttaa - mutta todennäköisesti edullisempaa on jos annat HIRL-isännän näyttää sinulle paikkoja kyseisessä kaupungissa.
Lisäksi järjestetyissä hengailuissa, saatat löytää järjestetyn keikan, jolla nousevat tai jo tunnetut Google + artistit voivat esitellä musiikkiansa ja voit keskustella ajan kanssa ja kasvotusten jo sinulle tuttujen hangout persoonien kanssa. Vähemmän organisoiduissa hengailuissa voit tavata hangout-tuttuja esimerkiksi virvokkeiden merkeissä. Jos löydät itsesi kaupungista jota et tunne, mutta tiedät jonkun paikallisen, ilmoita heille...voi olla, että pääset tapaamaan heidät oikeasti!


Miten HIRL:ta turvallisesti?

Ensinnäkin, aina varmista, että joku tietää minne olet menossa. Jos kyseessä on järjestetty hengailu, varmista että siellä tiedetään tulostasi, jotta he osaavat odottaa sinua mukaan aktiviteetteihin...varsinkin jos saatat myöhästyä. Jos olet huolissasi yksin menemisestä, ota kaveri mukaan! On odotettavaa, että muillakin on ystäviä mukana. Joukko luo turvaa, mutta on myös mukavaa saada henkistä tukea, jos et ole koskaan ennen hengaillut (in real life).


No, miten aloitan HIRL:n?

Lähetä viestiä eteenpäin ja katso ketkä piireissäsi olisivat kiinnostuneita. Kuten aiemmin mainitsin, voit myös lähettää viestin jollekin tietylle henkilölle, jos olet kaupunkivierailulla. On hyödyllistä pitää mielessä, että vaikka ihmiset lupaavat tulla, ei tarkoita että he varmasti tulevat...on siis hyödyllistä pitää kirja, kännykkä, tai läppäri käsien ulottuvilla.

Yritä valita sijainti, jossa vieraasi voivat tuntea itsensä turvalliseksi. Julkiset tilat ihmisillä on plussaa. Mieti etukäteen millaisia ihmisiä ja kuinka monta heitä on tulossa ja valitse tilanteeseen sopiva paikka. Jos tapaamistilassa on vähänkään toimiva Wifi, saatat saada osallistujia myös netin kautta!

Pohdi myös tapahtuman ajankohtaa. Pääosin kristillisissä maissa moni ihminen ei halua osallistua HIRL:iin jouluna, tai pääsiäisenä, joten suunnittele hengailut juhlapäivien väleihin.


Entäs ruoka?

Kaikkien täytyy syödä! Katsasta Googlesta ravintolat alueeltasi hyvien diilien ja vouchereiden varalta. Jos menet sponsoroituun tapahtumaan, saatat saada ilmaista murkinaa.


Missä yöpyä, jos olen paikkakunnalla muutaman päivän?

Jos matkustat toiseen maahan, tai toiseen kaupunkiin, kannattaa kysyä tapahtuman isännältä mistä saa yöpaikkoja hyvällä hinta-laatu suhteella. Jos taas olet nerokas etsijä-tyyppi, kokeile muutamaa google-hakua. Saatat saada jopa alennuksia, jos varaat ajoissa.


Mitä muuta minun tulee ottaa huomioon?

Ottaisin selvää onko alueella festivaaleja, tai erityistapahtumia kyseisenä ajankohtana. Sen lisäksi, että saat esimakua toiminnasta, saat myös kuvan mahdollisesta ihmismäärästä alueella. On myös hyvä ottaa selvää mahdollisista alennuskausista, koska on aina mukava säästää rahaa.

Jos olet suunnitellut osallistumista HIRL:iin, +Andy Stuart ja minä isännöimme hengailua Edinburghissa #EdingburghHIRL , joten jätä viesti osallistumispäivämääristäsi niin minä lisään sinut listalle, jotta osaamme varautua lukumääriin! Lisäksi, tsekkaa +HIRL Edinburgh uusimpien uutisten varalta :)___

Any Columbusites out there down for a brunch HIRL?
via +HIRLCBUS

The idea of having a brunch HIRL was kicked around recently, so the next #hirlcbus will be at Matt the Millers in Dublin for brunch!

Members of the #hircbus have done recon on this establishment and it is spectacular.

The date will be March 25th at 1pm.

We hope this will bring out more Columbusites that don't want to HIRL in a bar... .. .


RSVP to +Christopher Slee so we have an accurate count for them.___Any Columbusites out there down for a brunch HIRL?

Planning on meeting up at the #edinburghhirl ??

+Dolidh Young has released a new form to let them know you're going!

We really need to give the hostel heads up (to try to give them the best chance to keep us rooms that we need) and give us the best chance of getting you guys some discounts. I've made this fun little form through Google Docs to gather a couple of details from you that we need. ^_^

So, if you want to pop by, let us know when you expect to be up and if you need help finding accommodation and we can organise activities and find as many offers and vouchers that you guys can use while you're in Edinburgh.

So, pop in, show your support and your attendance, because we'd be 'chuffed to bits' to see you! And if you need any more information, please contact either myself or +Andy Stuart (or visit +HIRL Edinburgh and leave us a message!)

Here's some information about HIRLs and more specifically about the upcoming British HIRL in Edinburgh, Scotland in German.

HIRL (Hangout Im Reellen Leben) auf Deutsch
Wir haben den New Yorker HIRL aus der Ferne beobachtet, und wir werden außerdem die folgenden HIRLs im Auge behalten:

HIRL Columbus: 20. Februar
Leap Day HIRL in der Innenstadt von Knoxville: 29. Februar
South by Southwest (SXSW): 9.-18. März
HIRL Las Vegas: 14.-19. April
Nashville HIRL: 7.-10. Juni

Und dann sind wir dran! Europa übernimmt die Bühne mit einem HIRL in Schottland … Genauer gesagt in Edinburgh.

HIRL Edinburgh 12.-15. Juli

Egal ob Du gleich um die Ecke von der “Royal Mile” lebst, oder 10.000 Meilen weit aus Australien anreist, Du bist herzlich willkommen Schottland zu besuchen und die schottische Gastfreundlichkeit, Essen, Getränke und Sitten zu geniessen. Wir freuen uns schon jetzt darauf, Dich kennenzulernen!

Wir haben noch einen Haufen Organisationsarbeit vor uns, aber wir freuen uns schon auf Live Musik, “Hanging Out”, Fotospaziergänge (in der schönen Hauptstadt von Schottland ... bereite Dich auf ein kleines bißchen Regen vor!), typisches Kneipenbummeln, Whiskyproben und allerlei schottische Späßchen.

Solltest Du etwas knapp bei Kasse sein, hat Andy einige sehr günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten (zwischen £10 - £20/Nacht [ungefähr 12 € - 24€/Nacht beim derzeitigen Wechselkurs]) gefunden. Ausserdem ist es zeitlich zwischen den beiden großen Edinburgh Festivitäten, also sollten Flüge/Züge für einen Sommer-HIRL am güngstigsten sein.

Erzähle also bitte allen Deinen G+ Freunden, wenn Du Interesse haben solltest zu kommen und lasse es natürlich auch uns wissen, indem Du unsere G+ Seite "einkreist". Du kannst dich außerdem mit unserem Hashtag (siehe unten) über die Neuigkeiten auf dem Laufenden halten.

Wir sehen uns dann im Juli!

Die hellen Köpfe hinter dem +HIRL Edinburgh sind +Andy Stuart und +Dolidh Young Wenn Du also Fragen haben solltest, weißt Du, wen Du ansprechen kannst.

Awesome idea for a HIRL! +Ryan Van Sickle playing, in your living room as you meet others from around the world - in your living room!

Anyone up for a house party concert/HIRL? Contact +Ryan Van Sickle or +Daniel Ely Rankin using the contact info below!

HOUSE SHOW TOUR 2012 & NEW WEBSITE

After the great experience of the NYC HIRL (Hang Out In Real Life) concert, I thought, “What about taking the show right into people's living rooms?” A HIRL House Show Tour!

I love playing at venues, but there is nothing like a house show. Twenty to thirty people in a living room makes for the perfect intimate setting for a concert.

Since I’m living on the east coast I figured that would be a good place to start. If you live in or near Boston, NYC, Philly, DC, Raleigh, Charleston, Atlanta, Tampa, or anywhere in between and you would like to host or know someone that might like to host a house show then let's rock and roll and share this post with them!

This could be an incredible experience for all, but I need your help getting it started. For more information or to book your own event please contact:

All you need to know about HIRL

*Join my HIRL!*

In the summer, I'm going to be HIRLing with some folks in Edinburgh 12-15th July! I thought I'd put together a wee FAQ (frequently asked questions) for those questions about HIRLs you might not have asked anyone yet.

So, what exactly is a HIRL?

A HIRL in an acronym (a word formed from the initial letters of other words) for Hangout In Real Life.
I've explained in previous posts that Hangouts on Google+ let you video chat with up to 9 other people, well a HIRL is a meetup in a real place with the real people. If you're a fan of twitter, you might have heard of the twitter version, also known as a tweetup. Some people still call HIRLs HIPs (which stands for Hangout in Person)

What would you do in a HIRL?

Well, if a HIRL is a coordinated HIRL, you might do things like organised photowalks. This is great if you don't know the city yourself and would like someone that's fairly local to show you the sights. You could of course jump on a tour bus if walking terrifies you - but chances are that it'll be cheaper to let your HIRL host show you round whichever city you find yourself in.
Also in organised hangouts, you might find that there can be organised gig's for showing off upcoming or established Google+ based artists to showcase their music, time to actually chat face to face with the people you've been chatting to over hangouts and occasionally meet the odd well-known face.
On less-organised hangouts, you can meet for coffee or a drink and chat with people you've hungout with. If you find yourself in a city that you don't know, but you know someone that lives in the city, let them know... You never know, you might actually get to meet them!

How do I stay safe with HIRLs

First off, always make sure that someone knows where you're going.
If it's an organised hangout, make sure they know you're coming so that they can make sure they wait for you if they're organising activities... especially if you end up running late.
If you're worried about showing up by yourself, take a friend! And on the other hand, expect other people to have another person at least with them... other than safety in numbers, it's also nice to have some moral support if you've never hungout in real life before.

So, how to I start a HIRL?

Well, send out a message and see who'd be interested in your circles. Like I mentioned earlier, you could also pop a message to a particular person if you're visiting a city. Also it's a good idea to keep in mind that just because people say they'll come, doesn't mean that they will... So keep a book (or a hangout-capable phone or laptop) handy instead.

Try to choose a setting that your guests and you feel safe. Public places with lots of people are a plus. Have a think about what kind of people you might have coming and how many people you think you'll be expecting and choose an appropriate place. If you can get half decent signal or wifi in the place you're meeting up, you might get people involved through hangouts while you're HIRLing!

Also think about when you want to do your HIRLing. For example, in a mainly Christian country, a lot of people wouldn't HIRL through Christmas Day or Easter, so organising around big dates in the country are a good idea.

What about food?

Well, everyone has to eat! Why not have a look on google for the restaurants in the area and if you can get any good deals or vouchers. If you go to a sponsored event, you might even get some free nosh.

And where would I stay, if I'm staying in the city overnight or a few days?

If you're travelling to another country or another city, you might be best either asking your host where's a good or good value place to stay. Or, if you're a super-savvy searcher-type person, run a few google searches. You might be able to get discounts online and if you book early.

Anything else I should really think about?

I'd check out if there's any festivals or special days on in the place you're going. Not only to gauge what might be going on, but also how many people may turn up and how busy the place is that you'd be going to. I'd also check out if there's any deals going on in the places you're going because of any celebrations. It's always nice to save money.

So, if you're planning on coming to the HIRL +Andy Stuart and I are hosting in Edinburgh #EdinburghHIRL , please leave me a message with the dates you're going to be coming and I'll pop you onto our wee list so we know how many of you to expect! And check out +HIRL Edinburgh for the latest news on the Edinburgh HIRL :)

"I would to make our next +HIRL an even bigger and well organized one.

I would like to invite Mr. +Badar Khushnood (Google Pakistan Country Consultant) to our next Hangout in Real Life. I would also request Mr. Badar Khushnood to please tell us about his availability so that we can organize our HIRL accordingly. Our only requirement is for this HIRL to take place in Pakistan, preferably in Karachi, Lahore or Islamabad.

We can start off by organizing an All Pakistan Google Plus Hangout where we could plan our Hangout in Real Life.

Our Agenda for the Hangout in Real Life will be "Usage of Google+ and its Related Technologies for Educative and Community Building Purposes".

Thank You +Google+ for being a platform to open the doors for people to interact, network and meet in real world to start believing that internet world is for Real. Just learnt that how to start believing. Special Thanks to +Bilal Akbar for keeping the HANGOUT SPIRIT and traveling all the way from Sialkot (a city famous for export of sports goods around the world) to Lahore (about 150 KMS)

Lahore is famous for its Historical Architecture build by Muslim Rulers before British Rule. Its one of the major cities in Pakistan also famous for its People, Food and Culture. Its famous that if you have not seen Lahore, You haven't born yet :) ,

+Google+ is a product that is being personally endorsed by Mr. +Vic Gundotra (something that he told us all in a +Google+ Hangouts).

It would be absolutely amazing for representatives of Google to come and witness the immense community building power of this amazing product that has enabled us all to find and connect with amazing and interesting people from all around the Planet.

[If this post was directly shared with you and if you endorse this cause, I would expect a shout out from you to all your followers]"

Google+ Events for Wednesday - February 29, 2012
All times are EST (GMT -5)

Happy Leap Day!
Leap Years are needed to keep our calendar in alignment with the Earth's revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days to circle once around the Sun. If we didn't add a day on February 29 nearly every 4 years, we would lose almost six hours every year. After 100 years, our calendar would be off by approximately 24 days!

In just over a week we'll be touching down in Austin, TX for SXSW, and this year we're bringing a taste of the Googleplex to you.

During the Interactive part of the festival on March 10-11, we're taking over Rainey Street (a few steps from the convention center) and turning it into the Google Village. There you'll find four houses where we'll host demos, drinks, talks and live music: +Android, +Google Developers, +Google Maps and the Discovery House for our creative and advertising products.

We also have Googlers on 25+ panels, and +Vic Gundotra is speaking with +Guy Kawasaki on March 9 about the future of the Google+ project.

Later on in the week (March 15-16), Google Music and +YouTube Presents will host Live from the Lot, two days of concerts atop a downtown parking garage.

Find out more on our website—we hope to see you in Austin!
