Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 198: Google+ Hangout

I participated in a "Talkabout" this evening for my MOOC, and it was hosted through the Google+ Hangout platform.  This was the first time I'd been an active participant (not just a viewer) of a Google Hangout, and I actually really enjoyed the experience.

Luckily, there were only four of us who joined the Talkabout, so we each could chat and contribute meaningfully to the conversation.  Oddly enough, two of the folks were from Orange County, and the other was from San Francisco, so we had an even SoCal/NorCal split!

All of us had interesting stories to share and seemed to make a real connection, so we exchanged email addresses in the chat at the end of the hour.  It will be interesting to see if we continue any sort of discussion through email throughout the rest of the course.
