We the Geeks

Did you know there was something called “We the Geeks” on the White House website. The Victor crew came across this one day. So what is it?

We the Geeks is a series of Google+ Hangouts that features the future of science, technology, and innovation in America. They meet with Administration officials and private-sector contributors. You can join in the conversations using #WeTheGeeks and sign up for updates for upcoming hangouts.

Here is one of the last hangouts they streamed:

On the Thanksgiving Table

Perhaps you will have a turkey, some dressing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, and Skype (or FaceTime or Hangouts). With airline prices and demand keeping holiday travel way out of line, more and more people will be turning to video chatting to connect with family members.

Video chatting over phone calls can put you closer – in the same room, perhaps – and is much more intimate. With families so far away from their loved ones, this may be the only way they will connect this Thanksgiving. This is one way to close the geographical gap between family members. And it’s so easy!

Happy Thanksgiving!
