When not engrossed reading a good book on my kindle, watching science fiction, singing with the Cappella Singers or looking for new apps for my Iphone or Ipad l also trawl through the Internet and post useful articles on my Blog. I welcome your thoughtful contributions or questions.  I mainly hangout on Google+ where I find a nice level of engagement and plenty of interesting posts. I also use Twitter and Facebook. For video conversations I use Skype but am actively looking for an alternative. I am still amazed at what you can do on the Internet and where it's possible I enjoy being an early adopter.

I am a Secular Humanist and passionate supporter of Social Justice issues and can be found on Google+ in heated but respectful debate on these and many other topics. When reading I enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy and History as well as good smattering of Politics. If I had to choose a hero a word that is often over used I would say Carl Sagan. So that's me if you want to know more just drop me a line via my Contact Page or through the social media sites I have mentioned.

Google+ Hangouts On Air

If you have been using Google+ Hangouts well Google are now rolling out Hangouts On Air which allows you to record you Hangout live to your Youtube account. Below I have embedded a Google help video on how to use the new Google+ 

Also if your and Iphon or Ipad user Google has updated their Google+ app and it's great. My next hope is they will make it use the screen real estate of the Ipad and more support for Hangouts on the Ipad.
