Did you miss yesterday's Webinar "Google+ The Next Big Thing"? Paul Allen, Dan Lynch and Mark Olsen gave a very good overview and explanation of Google+ : streams, circles, hangouts, sparks and more.
Olive Tree Genealogy was one of the guests invited by Mark Olsen to appear in his segment about Hangouts on Google+. It was an interesting experience. Mark's an expert at Hangouts and while I've been to many (including some of his) this one was different.
