The secret of my (in)sanity

Run your Hangout as a person, not a page

You may be running a Hangout as part of an organization, but problems will ensue if you try to run your Hangout from within a Page.

A Page is an organizational Google+ site, and it is different from your individual Google+. This can get confusing, so let me explain it in the context of the Teachers’ Conference show so that you understand exactly what I mean.

Of Telephone Numbers And Death

Sometime in the next few hours my 509 area code phone number will stop working. You can still reach me at my 425 area code phone number.

If you do not have my 425 area code phone number and think that you should have it, email me. My gmail username is lishevita.
